Cherokee Recreation Spring Break Camp: 03/24/2017

On the morning of Friday, March 24th, we went to Cherokee Recreation Center to meet with kids participating in Cherokee Rec’s Spring Break Camp. We met with 20 kids ages 4-7 and talked to them about our planning efforts, their neighborhoods, and the kinds of things they want to see. Using interactive maps with pens and markers, kids mapped their homes, where they spend time in their neighborhood, what they want to see and the challenges they face. Here are photos of the two maps the kids drew:


“Community Loves: a lot to do, a lot of people you can trust, a lot of friends, library, people with talents, paints on houses.”

“Community Challenges: violence, bullying, lies, windows broken on houses, people are bad.”

“Love is all you need.”
