Ball State University Cardinal Kids Camp Mapping the World
Ball State University Cardinal Kids Camp Colors the World (Map)
The Ball State University Cardinal Kids Camp kicked off its “Around the World” week coloring world maps from the University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC). Cardinal Kids Camp is a summer program managed by the Office of Recreation Services that provides children weeks of activities including games, arts and crafts, tours, and swimming. The campers range in age from preschool to age 13. Each year the GRMC coordinates some special learning projects for the campers and organizes a visit to Bracken Library with Educational Resources Collections staff for other games and activities.
Many of the activities used for Cardinal Kids Camp and other youth activities are available from the GRMC on the University Libraries' Cardinal Scholar institutional repository at http://cardinalscholar.bsu.edu/. For more information about using maps in the classroom or for special learning activities, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
