QORDS Camp Website

Background

QORDS is a week-long overnight summer camp for queer youth or youth of queer parents, with special focus on youth in the South. Over the course of a week, campers form bands, write songs, engage in traditional camp activities, and attend a variety of workshops – from drag performance to water conservation to bookbinding (I teach that one). By late 2016, the website was in need of an update, especially with the extra attention QORDS was receiving in response to the recent passage of HB2.

Design

I worked collaboratively with Jess Epsten, who brought experience with technical aspects of WordPress, while I implemented most of the visual design – choosing and preparing images, reorganizing content, layout, styling plugins, and maintaining consistency across pages.

Maintenance

Currently, I solely maintain the site and keep up with regular backups, plugin/theme updates, and any requests from camp core organizers.
