Exciting Curriculum for Summer 2017!

Do YOU want to learn how to design your own Website?!  At Web Design Camp, campers will learn how to create and customize their own website using WordPress!

With the ability to choose from many templates, campers will design a website for an area of interest, with examples including but not limited to a business concept, a potential non-profit, a restaurant, a sports commentary site, a food blog, an art portfolio site and much more! Once campers solidify their website concept, they select a theme and layout the site.  Text and graphics are added to the site, making up the basic components of the website.  After the basics of the website are established, campers learn how to code in HTML to edit text on webpages and design for various screen sizes in desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.  Campers also learn how to customize graphics, fonts, and page layout.  In addition, campers use plugins to further customize and enhance the functionality of their website!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Create Your Own Platform:  Web Designing is a powerful tool that can allow you to establish a website and bring your message, service, products or organization to the world!

Code, Code, Code: Learn to code in HTML to enhance your website!

It’s a Digital World:  In our ever evolving digital world, the ability to design websites and skills developed during the process should keep you ahead of the curve!

Have Fun with Plugins:  Learn how to utilize plugins to add cool customization to your site… essentially, add on the bells and whistles!

Complete an Awesome Project:  Create a project from start to finish with the option to work on it even after camp ends!

On Friday, campers will present their websites to the camp in our Web Design Showcase!

*Utilizing the web design platform is dependent upon internet connectivity.  Internet connectivity successfully undergoes testing prior to the summer at each location.  Although rare, during camp, it is possible that external factors may cause an interruption in connectivity.  If this occurs, campers will work on offline activities such as developing wireframes for their sites, editing photos, and learning html coding.

Terms & Conditions:  Please note, if registering for Web Design Camp, you agree to the following: Campers are required to come to camp with a verified WordPress.com account and the login information for this account.  Once the URL is selected for the website and it is initiated, campers will make their website private but will be able to edit/build their site during the week.  Once the website is private, campers must keep their website private during the entire camp week.  Once a camper establishes his/her website, the website is owned/managed completely by the camper and his/her legal guardian, and is unaffiliated with Lavner Camps.  If the camper would like to make his/her website live when the camp week ends, it is at the camper/legal guardians option to publish/manage the site only after camp is over.  By registering for this camp, you agree to the above terms & conditions.

Here are the instructions for setting up your WordPress account:  How to create a free WordPress.com account

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt and leave with their very own project!
