ABOUT THE CAMPUS
The campus is a world unto itself, with no through roads. The Alaska Pacific University campus in Anchorage is one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States, with the Chugach Mountains rising up behind nearly 200 acres of lawns, woods, and University Lake.
Campers will be staying in nice dorms at Alaska Pacific University. Each room has 2-6 beds available with individual private shower facilities. These rooms are not air-conditioned and we suggest you bring a fan. The cafeteria facility provides an all-you-can-eat salad bar with fresh fruit, hot entrees with beverage, sandwich and cereal stations.Meet your coaching staff

NBC Camps coaches are known for their hard work, great attitude, and commitment to helping you reach your potential on and off the court. Our curriculum focuses on helping you master even the most difficult skills as well as developing leadership, mental toughness, and confidence.
The NBC Difference
Unlike other camp programs where skills training falls under the expertise of the camp director, NBC Camps has built a program of training to help each camper walk out of camp a better player and person. Our site directors work as event managers helping to run a great week of camp and facilitating the implementation of our specific camp expectations. Our basketball instruction is based on skill curriculum and talent development we believe are essential to take your game to the next level. Though coaching styles and drills may change, our master teachers receive DVDs, lesson plans, and detailed training on how to maximize this week of camp. Coaching at camp is much different than coaching a team. With over 40 years experience, our goal is to give you the best basketball and life skills instruction possible.
