Each month, Burritt on the Mountain recognizes a volunteer who goes above and beyond to assist our guests and staff.
The November Volunteer of the Month award goes to Maria Camp
Maria has volunteered at Burritt for over a year and has been a wonderful asset to the Education Department and to our Special Events programs. During this span, she has given over 220 hours of her valued time to support Burritt.
Maria has volunteered with camps, field trips, super Saturdays, annual events and festivals, as well as many special events like Cocktails at The View. Maria shines when she is teaching children about mining in Alabama and panning for gems at the sluice. Her love for interacting with young children and her joyful and kind nature make kids feel comfortable instantly and makes learning fun! She also brings her own artistic flare with her and has given great ideas to add to presentations.
Maria drives over an hour each way to volunteer. When asked why she chose to spend her valued time at Burritt, she said: “It’s fun to learn new things and help other people learn things they didn’t know. I love meeting and interacting with people in such a pleasant environment. There’s a real sense of community at Burritt on the Mountain that always makes me feel at home. I really love the old buildings, the view, the people, and all the interesting animals.”
Maria is a dedicated, talented volunteer and has brought lots of enthusiasm to Burritt. Thank you Maria for all you do to support Burritt on the Mountain.
