We love soccer at Future Stars. It’s fast-paced and fun for children of any age. Plus, it’s a great workout and requires very little equipment; you only need a field and a ball.
Before starting the summer camp enrollment process, there’s some preparation involved.
Whether you’re sending your child to a specialty camp or a traditional summer camp, it’s important to most parents that their child will be challenged by their program of choice.
While our goal is to provide campers with an unforgettable experience and the opportunity to develop new skills, we also want to help them make new friends and grow healthy social skills.

Many sports have a rich and interesting history.
Tennis players used the palms of their hands before rackets were invented. Basketball used a peach basket for a hoop and referees had to climb up a ladder to retrieve the ball.
Volleyball is another sport with an interesting history. Before growing into a global phenomenon, it had humble beginnings.
