Pirate Theme Chosen for Visit to Bracken Library by Cardinal Kids Camp

More than 100 children from kindergarten through eighth grade visited Bracken Library during the week of June 11, 2007, as part of Cardinal Kids Camp. The campus outings expose children to various aspects of the college environment. Staff counselors are Ball State students, many of whom use these experiences to prepare for future teaching. During the visit, some of the University Libraries’ personnel collaborated with Kids Camp organizers from Ball State’s Office of Recreation Services to host the visit and to use items from the Libraries’ extensive collection relevant to teacher training.

“The kids really enjoyed their time and had a lot of cool things to go home with,” said Emily Clark, a member of the administrative staff for Cardinal Kids Camp. “The map-making, learning about pirates' way of life, and the scavenger hunt really enhanced our Pirates of the Caribbean week.”
