The Future Stars Swim Camp is designed for boys and girls entering ages 8-14, and aims to cultivate confidence and improve techniques in the water. Swim Camp follows a progressive curriculum, with campers grouped by ability level in accordance with Red Cross standards.
Campers will be given the tools to systematically progress during a day balanced with technical work, training sessions, and dry land training. Our goal is to pattern solid stroke fundamentals and fine-tune starts and turns so that each camper may reach their individual potential. Certified coaches oversee a comprehensive program designed to build confidence, competence and performance in the water.
The program has a low - 6:1 - coach-to-camper ratio, and sessions do sell out / close out, so we recommend registering early to avoid missing out or being waitlisted.
Any questions re the Swim Camp program can be directed to the camp office on (631) 572-0232.

Future Stars have use of St.Joseph's College pool during the summer camp season.
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.
Campers participating in the programs at the Outdoor Field Complex, a school bus provides transportation to and from the main campus for the campers and coaches.
Pool safety is taken very seriously, and the pool staff is highly qualified and carry numerous accolades and certifications, including WSI, Lifeguard Management, Lifeguard, First-Aid, and CPR_AED for the Professional Rescuer. They are involved in the 'Learn to Swim' program throughout the year.
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' at the main campus field. At least three times a week, there will be inflatable water slides for campers to enjoy.
