Through diverse activities such as outdoor orienteering games, campers will engage with  the elements of cartography. They will practice moving north, south, east, and west and use cardinal directions to read a map. They will  map the camp space, and places in the park, measure distances and explore maps as miniatures versions of places. Through learning  mapping skills, they will deepen their understanding of local, national and international geography and history. Campers will learn  about indigenous map-making and how it relates to re-indigenizing the land. Maps will provide them with an interesting lens to explore  the history of the world and its people. By the end of this week, campers will be expert map-makers and readers!
