Waterpark

Every day all campers have a designated 'cool-off' and 'chill-out' period at our Future Stars 'Waterpark & Game Area'

Locker Rooms and Changing Areas are available for Boys & Girls, and campers are supervised by our staff throughout to ensure a smooth transition.

The 'Waterpark' features an inflatable Waterslide, WaveSlide, FunAir Slip'n'Slide, and Sprinklers to keep campers cool and refreshed.

The 'Game Area' features many outdoor backyard games as well as table & strategy game options. We look to add new options and fun games throughout the summer to give campers a variety of activities during this period of the day as they cool-off and chill-out before their afternoon periods.
