Registered campers must bring their own lunch at the Future Stars Albany 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.



 

 

Water Park

Each day, all programs will have 45 minutes to an hour to cool off and chill out in our designated “Waterpark” and “Game Tent” areas. Campers taking part in our entertaining waterpark activities will change in separate locker rooms for boys and girls and will be accompanied by multiple staff members to make sure they get in and out with no problems. Team members will assist campers when needed, and there are multiple bathroom and shower stalls for privacy.

The Waterpark features “THE BIG KAHUNA” – our inflatable Double Lane Waterslide that kids don’t want to leave and love sliding down over and over again! In addition, we have another "Big Wave" Waterslide, an inflatable Double Lane Slip’n’Slide, and Sprinklers that allow the campers too cool-off and chill-out each day.  We also bring in other inflatables over the summer for additional fun; water slides, obstacle courses, bounch houses.

Our Game Tent area features a GaGa Pit, Ping Pong Tables, Nok Hockey Tables, Bag Toss, Kan Jam, Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4, Giant Checkers, a Nukem Court and more! We’re always adding new games year-after-year and even break out the inflatable tug-o-war and other fun inflatables throughout that summer.
