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.
*This is not a 'learn-to-swim' program. Attendees should be proficient in the water and have an understanding of the basic strokes. Current swim club members or those seeking to join a club and build on their current skill set will get the most out of this developmental program.
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.

What are the ratios?
Typically, between 8-10:1. Exceptions are Tennis (6:1) and Little Stars (4:1)
What happens during inclement weather?
Camp still runs as planned. If possible, we prefer to have our programs continue with their normal programming. However, if and when inclement weather mandates we go indoors, we have ample indoor space to utilize at main campus. Occasionally, the multi-sport program will take off-site trips on rainy days, such as bowling, air-trampoline, etc.
What happens on really hot days?
Our experienced coaching staff will take additional water/shade breaks throughout the day. There are shaded areas and tents around the athletic fields where groups can rest between activities. Campers are able to cool-off by our misting fans or even take a quick run through the sprinklers that we turn on. Pool time and/or Water Park time would also be extended for that day, not to mention access to air-conditioned indoor space.

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.
Registered campers must bring their own lunch at the St.Joes site. Please pack lunch in a cooler type bag, as there is no refrigeration for lunches. All campers will eat in the air conditioned cafeteria located inside O'Connor Hall on the main campus.
There are plenty of drinking 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.
