CAMP NMA-ZING YOUTH 2015 PROGRAM – Detroit, MI
Activity Descriptions
The preliminary program activities have been carefully selected with the goal of providing a wide range of
age-appropriate, educational, social and cultural experiences unique to Detroit, MI. Kama`aina Kids will work
with NMA convention planners to develop a program which is convenient for parents and conventioneers, as
well as, enjoyable and memorable for participants. The following activity descriptions detail the Camp
NMA-Zing Youth 2015 Program. Activities are subject to change due to availability in August 2015.
1. Greenfield Village takes you back to a time when American innovation was speedily and permanently
changing the world in which we live. This was a time when bold pioneers of science, industry and
social issues were making the world a better place. Henry Ford founded this village, the largest
museum complex in the nation, to preserve history and the great advancements of his day. Significant
buildings include the Wright’s bicycle shop; the home of Noah Webster, where he wrote his first
dictionary; a replica of Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park laboratory; and the Illinois courthouse where
Abraham Lincoln first practiced law. Visitors can also take a ride in a horse-drawn omnibus, a Ford
Model T, a steam locomotive or a historic 1913 Herschell-Spillman Carousel!
2. The Detroit PuppetART Center’s rich, multicultural productions are known for having an eye for detail
that should offer plenty to appreciate for kids and adults. The theatre’s core is composed of artists
classically trained in Russian puppeteering. The theater designs and manufactures all puppets in
house, and composes music for its productions as well. They will present us with Kolobok, a song-filled
Russian version of The Gingerbread Man play.
3. Diamond Jack’s River Tours offers a 1.5 hour narrated boat tour that is educational, historical and
fun. This ride offers a unique and close-up look at some of Detroit’s most iconic landmarks. Detroit
was once dubbed the “Paris of the West” for its exceptionally beautiful architecture, such as the
Renaissance Center, Ambassador Bridge, Fort Wayne and J.W. Westcott Floating Post Office. In
addition, we’ll see 16 miles of U.S and Canada Detroit River shoreline, ocean-going and Great Lakes
ships, a light house, ship terminals, a mail boat and much more.
4. The GM Renaissance Center Tour is a one-hour tour taking visitors through the landmark GM
Renaissance Center and outlines the rich history that General Motors shares with the city of Detroit.
Tour highlights include the Wintergarden, a tropical atrium overlooking Detroit River; GM Showroom, an
eclectic display of vintage, new model and concept vehicles; Borealis Glass Sculpture, the tallest
vertical glass sculpture in the world; and a glass elevator ride to the 72 nd floor for a breathtaking view of
the Detroit and Windsor skylines.
5. Project Sun is an annual event conducted by the Auxiliary to the National Medical Association (ANMA)
for youth, ages nine and up.
6. The Department of Natural Resources’ Outdoor Adventure Center will allow people to experience
things not typically found in an urban setting – snowmobile and off-road driving simulations, fauxpiloting an environmental reconnaissance Cessna, kayaking some of the state’s winding rivers, reeling
in a bluegill or steelhead, and hunching into a deer blind with a rifle. The 50,000 square-foot building in
the heart of Detroit will house interactive exhibits that will teach people about being good stewards of
the natural resources, while encouraging them to get out and play.
7. Karen Czarnik is a storyteller, singer songwriter and musician, whose unique performances combine
music and stories to teach, engage, encourage and tickle to the funny bone. Her collaboration of
characters and tale reveal colorful images in the minds of listeners. Karen’s music, voice and stories
inspire audiences of all ages.
8. The Ford Football Field Tour will give us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Detroit’s crown jewel and
the home of the Detroit Lions, Super Bowl XL and the 2009 NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four. This
indoor stadium represents Detroit’s history and its future in a single venue, integrating the stadium into
the historical old Hudson’s warehouse built in the 1920s. We’ll get a peek at a Ford Field suite, an NFL
locker room, walk down the tunnel to the field and stand on the turf for a player’s view of the stadium.
9. Detroit Zoo features 125 acres of naturalistic exhibits with 1300 mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians,
fish and invertebrates of 250 different species. This zoo was the first in the United States to use open
natural exhibits. The Arctic Ring of Life exhibit takes visitors on a trek to the North Pole, Australian
Outback Adventure lets us view red kangaroos and wallabies and Penguinarium is the first exhibit in
the country designed specifically for penguins.
10. Dynamike “The Michigan Kid’s Master Magician” has been performing comedy magic acts throughout
Michigan for over 30 years. He has performed in many venues from festivals to television shows to the
White House. Kids enjoy watching Dynamike and his exciting, engaging comedy magic acts.
11. Experience a Detroit Tigers Baseball Game at Comerica Park! We will cheer for the Tigers in a
home game against the Kansas City Royals. Nearly every seat in the main grandstand has an
excellent view of downtown Detroit. In centerfield are several fountains that produce liquid fireworks
every time a homerun is hit.
12. The Michigan Science Center is a unique, fun and dynamic hands-on museum, offering programs that
inspire children and their families to discover, explore and appreciate science, technology and math in a
fun, dynamic learning environment. Through an interactive approach to science with engaging, handson exhibits, shows and activities, MiSci strives to help launch the next generation of Michigan’s
engineers, scientists and innovators, and significantly impact the cultural and economic renewal of
Detroit and Michigan.
13. The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is the world’s largest institution
dedicated to the African American experience, with a mission to open minds and change lives through
the exploration and celebration of African American history and culture. It houses over 35,000 artifacts
and archival materials and is home to the Blanche Coggin Underground Railroad Collection, Harriet
Tubman Museum Collection, Coleman A. Young Collection and the Sheffield Collection, a repository of
documents of the labor movement in Detroit.
14. Mad Science Detroit is on a mission to spark the imagination and curiosity of children by providing
them with fun, interactive and educational programs that instill a clear understanding of what science is
and how it affects their world. Spectacular science-themed shows are designed to amaze and entertain
audiences. Children learn about science when they see foggy dry ice storms, float on a Mad Science
hovercraft, watch a foam factory at work, discover Bernoulli’s principle, make magic mud, alter sound
waves and so much more!
15. The Camp NMA-Zing Talent Competition gives our young stars a chance to shine. Groups will
practice a song, dance, skit or other talent to perform for our live audience of their peers and our staff
judges!
16. The Camp NMA-Zing Teen Dance, for ages 12 and up, is an on-site dance party for youth to unwind,
express imagination and artistry, and celebrate with their friends. A live DJ, lighting effects, dance
contests and more will make this last evening of camp one to remember.
