The majority of our program-specific directors are certified teachers and/or coaches with years of experience working with children. Assistant directors and head counselors are experienced educators or youth coaches. Junior counselors are typically college-aged student-athletes, education majors and/or former campers.

Future Stars offers flexible weekly schedules so you can register for as few or as many weeks as you choose. All registration is based on availability.
