Auburn based Encompass Marketing (www.encompassmarketing.com) announces the completion a web project with Volunteers of America Northern New England (www.voanne.org) in support of their Camp POSTCARD program.
“We are truly excited about the addition of this new website to our Camp POSTCARD program for needy Maine fifth and sixth graders,” said June Koegel, President and CEO of Volunteers of America Northern New England. Camp POSTCARD is a week long program that focuses on bringing these youth together with volunteer law enforcement and criminal justice professionals for a unique program of traditional camp activities, time spent with strong role models and new and innovative health education and nutrition program called “Fit, Fed and Fun”.
Sponsored by the National Recreation Association, Fit Fed and Fun helps students understand how exercise, combined with smart dietary and other lifestyle choices, can improve their health and change their lives at this important time in their development.
VOANNE was looking for a safe, family-friendly social media experience for campers to keep in contact with one another as well as the camp counselors after their camp experience. Built around a theme of making healthy choices, campers and counselors each have a unique user name and password and are able to keep track of how much exercise they get, share ideas, make status updates, and engage in chats with each other. “Now the benefits of, and information provided by Fit, Fed and Fun will be available to campers well after camp is over,” said VONNE’s June Koegel.
Encompass Marketing believes in building websites using “Open Source” technology. The Camp POSTCARD site was built using WP Symposium (a social media plug-in for WordPress websites). All Encompass sites are built using WordPress, free from proprietary software, and are easily transferable to other developers and users.
