The Friends of Detroit City Airport have been teaching youths about aviation for more than 30 years and offer day camps to expose young people to the fields of aerospace, aviation, engineering, math, science and technology.
The day camp, Airport 101, also emphasizes the importance of community service.
On Saturday, campers pulled weeds, swept dirt and cleaned up around the Coleman A. Young International Detroit City Airport on the city’s east side. They participated in one of more than 150 community events across Detroit for the 16th annual ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day.
