Camps, The Whimsical Woods, parking assistant at Friday night concerts, and a volunteer soon for a spray painting project. I've described the volunteer opportunities below. If you see something you're interested in please call Sherry Jones at (256) 533-1365 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org" target="_blank">email@example.com.
Camp dates are as follows, Monday - Friday each week:
June 3-7 June 10-14 June 17-21 June 24-28 Break
July 8-12 July 15-19
Shifts are: Early shift 8:30am - 2:30pm Late shift 1:45 - 5:30pm (We're also willing to work with you if the standard shifts don't fit into your schedule.)
Camp Counselor Orientation: Thursday, May 30 from 3:30 - 4:30pm in the Burritt Classroom
TWW: We are also seeking volunteers for our "The Whimsical Woods" (TWW) event this summer. TWW volunteers portray characters from 1800 and 1900s children's literature in our Historic Park each day of the week except for Mondays.
Volunteer shifts are available from now until Labor Day, September 2nd:
Tuesday - Friday: 11:00am - 3:00pm Saturdays: 9:00am -1:00pm, or 12:30-4:30pm Sundays: 12:30 - 4:30pm
Of course, if these shifts don't fit your schedule, we are willing to work with you to accommodate your needs. Burritt provides the full costumes, ranging from pirates to woodsmen to witches and fairies, but you may also wear one of the costumes that is more simple such as Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn (mainly a historic shirt and vest). Volunteers are asked to greet guests, ensure safety of the children playing in TWW, and answer visitors' questions. I've attached our TWW volunteer guidelines and info letter.
Spray Paint: The date and time has yet to be determined (awaiting the completion of the new items to be painted), but the job entails painting from 100-200 wooden stakes that have wood and metal candle holders on one end. Most are already painted black but are in need of another coat, and some are fresh wood that need complete coverage. The work will be messy and will be an outdoors job.
Spay/Neuter Action Project: This is a non-profit organization whose goal is to provide spay/neuter surgeries for pets of low income families and individuals. They are in need of volunteers to help in various areas such as adoption counseling, fyler distribution, animal care, and to assist in their Thrift Shop. For more information please contact Janice Gibbon at 256-541-4840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
