Who are your staff members?

What are the ratios?
Typically, between 8-10:1. Exception is Rising Stars (5:1).

What happens during inclement weather?
Camp still runs as planned. If and when inclement weather mandates we go indoors, we have sufficient indoor space for all camps to carry out their traditional programming.  We don't do 'movie days' at Future Stars.

What happens on really hot days?
Our experienced coaching staff will take mandated and frequent water/shade breaks throughout the day.  Additionally, we will schedule additional indoor air-conditioned time and extended pool time to limit exposure to the intense heat.

Future Stars has exclusive use of the College pool during our swim hours.

  • The heated pool is located indoors in the physical education complex
  • The pool is maintained by NCC Athletics Department and has a Certified Pool Operator on-site throughout the summer.
  • The pool is inspected by the NY state (Nassau County) Department of Health.

Campers have a recreational swim every day for about 45 minutes. Rising Stars and youngest Multi-Sports campers will also receive instructional swim each day.

Pool safety is taken very seriously, and the pool staff is highly qualified and carries numerous accolades and certifications, including WSI, Lifeguard Management, Lifeguard, First-Aid, and CPR_AED for the Professional Rescuer. We are even a certified lifeguard training site. Our aquatics staff is second to none.

Every Monday, each new camper is swim tested to determine level and ability, with regular buddy checks taken by our pool staff.

In addition to the pool, we also host our 'Future Stars Water Park' with inflatable water slides for campers to enjoy.


Registered campers must bring their own lunch at the Nassau Community College site. Please pack lunch in a cooler-type bag, as there is no refrigeration for lunches. 

There are plenty of filtered water fountains throughout campus, in addition to vending machines should your camper wish to purchase a drink during the day.

We are committed to being a 'nut-free' camp, so please make every effort to avoid packing foods that include nut products.
