CORE STEAM Subjects:

Coding & Game Design with Scratch
Learn how to create old-school and new-school 2D Video Games! After being shown how to create a few simple games, each camper will be able to create their own originals. Using code and loops to create games requires one to think outside the box. This will give campers a glimpse into how complicated commercial games are to develop.

Stop Motion Animation & Filmmaking
Experience the amazing world of Stop Motion Animation and Real Action Filmmaking! Stop motion is an interesting art and labor of love - By creating a scene and moving objects and characters slightly between each photo, one combines the photos to make moving images, a movie! Using Lego, puppets, and basically anything else, campers will create original stories told through stop motion. Campers will also learn how television and movie production works through real action filmmaking. It takes a team to create a film and campers will experience first hand the steps and teamwork required to make a parody commercial, music video, news broadcast and short film.

Coding & Game Design with Scratch
These workshops introduce campers to coding concepts, the fundamentals of video game design, and digital worldbuilding. Through project-based instruction using the Scratch coding language, campers will learn about events, loops, variables, and other core coding concepts. In addition to using Scratch to build games, they will also use the Bloxels and Minecraft EDU platforms. These tools will help campers gain an understanding of 3D environments and how to build robust games that include heroes, enemies, levels, power-ups, hazards, and more. Most importantly, campers will have fun while building foundations in complex topics!

Esports with Minecraft
This Esports class is focused on building life skills through playing the cooperative games that kids already love. Players meet with their team to practice or compete against another team under the careful guidance of an Esports coach. The class uses platforms that campers are familiar with, such as Minecraft, to facilitate fun, friendly games. Practices focus on strategy, team building, communication, and sportsmanship.

Circuit Adventures
Circuits are closed loops through which electrons, also known as electricity, travels. Circuits are used in devices all around us, from light switches to toasters to computers, and even cars! Campers are guided through the specific elements of circuits while developing an understanding of key electricity concepts, such as voltage, resistors, batteries and more. Create your own paper circuit art and robot and watch your creation come to life with electricity!

3D Design & Printing with TinkerCAD
Experience a still-emerging technology, 3D Printing! It all starts with a design to print, we learn how to use a Computer Aided Design program called TinkerCAD. TinkerCAD is the little sibling to AutoCAD, a program used by professional engineers and architects. Start by creating a house, a future home to lunar dwellings. Then work to master 3D design skills by creating a product, toy or model and much more!

Exploring their creativity students produce anything from recreations of their favorite droid to a stand for their tablet, whatever their minds can come up with! 

 LEGO Robotics and Engineering
See your children grow and shine through an introductory robotics and coding course from LEGO. Campers will take their background knowledge of STEM and put it into practice as they work in teams to design and build robots using Lego robotics kits. They will use their STEM skills combined with critical thinking to work as a team to build robots and compete in exciting, mission-based games. Along with building, children will also practice their coding skills as they program their robots to accomplish practical goals. Campers will apply themselves in engaging activities and missions while gaining productive learning habits, confidence, and teamwork skills along the way.


Junior Builders
Junior Builders challenges campers to build models of bridges, planes, boats and more! Campers learn about building materials, such as cardboard, Legos, up-cycling materials and how to creatively construct their projects using design based thinking. How much weight can your boat hold before sinking? How tall can your building grow? Inspire, learn and create with this hands-on STEAM projects!

Design & Engineering
Campers explore how design and engineering are all around us, everything that is human made is designed and engineered… How does one go about designing products, buildings, vehicles and more? When does engineering become important, and what role does it play?

Campers will use various methods to explore and answer these questions, including 3d design and printing, model building, structural testing and more! Campers love our “shake table” that re-creates earthquakes to study how changes in engineering can make the building stay put!


Program Partnership - iCamp

In partnership with iCamp campers will participate in fun and hands-on activities. iCamp is a leading STEAM camp provider based out of NYC and the Hamptons. iCamp's expert teachers and directors will pilot all STEAM programs offered on site.

 

iCamp's Founding Precepts

For the curious
The children we teach have a true yearning for knowledge. Our mission is to feed this hunger and teach powerful skills in the process.
Every voice heard
We maintain a low instructor to camper ratio to ensure that our staff can give each child the optimal amount of attention and guidance.
Creating creators
Reinforcing art, design, and creativity is just as important as teaching technical skills. The real magic of technology is creation.
Fun to learn
Education has a bad rap. We are turning that notion on its head. Our programs are as fun as they are educational. That is what keeps kids and parents coming back.

 

CHARACTER


Safety is first for a reason. Ingrained in everything we do, safety paves the way for our campers to thrive in a healthy environment.
Teamwork challenges our campers to collaborate thoughtfully and teaches us that, “we are not on a team because we work together, we are on a team because we respect, trust, and care for one another.” 
Attitude is everything, our coaches discuss both the good and the bad of attitudes; guiding campers to consider the power of an open and growth-oriented mind. 
Responsibility fosters a supportive and thriving community, which takes effort from every single member. We encourage every camper to take ownership of their actions, just as they do their belongings.  
Sportsmanship is more than just a handshake at the end of a game. We encourage our campers to honor differences and celebrate similarities of everyone in our community, all the while playing hard and playing fair. 
 
What does it mean to be a Future Star?

Our S.T.A.R.S. acronym tells our campers and parents of what it means to be a part of the Future Stars Southampton family. We aim to help our campers understand the value and interconnectedness of Safety, Teamwork, Attitude, Responsibility, and Sportsmanship. Through fun and engaging activities each day of every camp week, our staff of professional coaches/educators emphasizes one of these values, discussing its importance and encouraging campers to recognize the power they hold to contribute positively to a community or a team. Whether on the baseball field, in a chess match, or on a paddle board, we strive to equip every camper with the tools to be a Future Star for any community they may be a part of!

Meet Our Site Director

We’re excited to introduce you to our Director at our Suffolk Community College Riverhead Campus: Keegan Johnson.

Keegan is a passionate, caring individual who strives to make a difference in the lives of children. Sports have always been a major part of his life and have taught him lessons that have shaped his path. Keegan joined the Future Stars team in 2016 as a counselor for the Little Stars program in Southampton. Prior to joining us, Keegan attended Georgetown University on a track scholarship, where he was a successful 400m runner and triple jumper. Due to injury, he was forced to return to Long Island to finish his Bachelor of Science Degree in psychology at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue. From there, Keegan attended LIU Brooklyn, where he obtained a Master of Science Degree in Education with a concentration in School Psychology. 

After Graduating in 2013, Keegan returned to his alma mater, Longwood School District in Middle Island, where he’s worked for 8 years and is currently a school psychologist. Keegan also works at night school for high school students that require an alternative learning program in order to graduate. He volunteers as a “My Brother’s Keeper” liaison for the district as well. Keegan’s commitment to being a positive influence for local youth is coupled with various other professional positions he’s held. He’s worked in custodial services, summer school programs, County and State Civil Service exam proctoring, child counseling services, babysitting, travel chaperone, and - second only to being a team member at Future Stars - as a DJ for events throughout Long Island.

With that background, and an unwavering commitment to making sure our campers are happy and safe, we are thrilled to have Keegan leading our inaugural camp season!
