Jenna Shearer EEFC Volunteer

Meet Volunteer Jenna Shearer, Marketing & Communications Committee

The Marketing and Communications Committee is fortunate to have Jenna Shearer on the team. Her decision to offer her skills in social media has provided the EEFC with better and more consistent content that stimulates more interest on the part of our Facebook community. In the long run we equate more interest with increased attendance to our camps!

My history with the EEFC stretches back to before I can really remember. My parents, Wendy and Doug Shearer, are long-time campers, and I’ve attended camp almost every year of my life. Camp became more significant to me in middle school, as my “safe place” where knowledge, skill and dedication mattered more than superficial qualities that the greater world emphasized. Camp has played a huge part in developing my self-esteem and influenced my decision to pursue dance through high school and college, and now as a full-time professional belly dance instructor and performer.

I chose to volunteer with the EEFC because I’m concerned by the dearth of campers aged 20-40. I am working with Elena and Eva in Marketing and Communications, because it complements the outreach I’m already doing in the belly dance community. I’m currently providing some of the posts you see on the EEFC’s Facebook page and am reviving the organization’s Twitter account. It’s immensely rewarding to give back to the community that’s given so much to me.
