What others say about us
Future Stars Basketball Camp is a fantastic youth camp that I highly recommend for players to “get better”- It is top notch- great coaches, outstanding facilities and a very well run camp overall. The directors are on site and involved in the day to day running and planning of the camp.
This is a great basketball camp for all ages. Our son started attending as a 5th grader. Camp was organized, always on schedule, and a memorable experience. Dorms are close to the gym facility and food services. Team coaches are responsible and very knowledgeable. It was a wonderful experience all around.
My sons enjoyed going to Future Stars every summer for 6 years. The coaching is great, Lake Forest College has amazing facilities, and the kids made great memories that will last a lifetime.
Our family has a lot of experience with Future Stars through our two sons. Over the years, this camp has been a highlight each summer. The coaching is excellent and the facilities are great. This camp comes highly recommended.
