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.

Camper Reviews

Bridget L.Parent

  • 5/5.
Great experience!

My son has never worked so hard at a camp, and I thought for sure he would not want to repeat it, but on the contrary he would have lived there. The coaching staff was a perfect blend of intense, kind, strong, dedicated, and tough. He thoroughly enjoyed his experience and we will definitely be back next year!!

  • 5/5.
Positive staff

My son Logan really connected with Coach Thomas - he really liked him and said he helped him with many parts of the game. My son is pretty shy, so it was really neat to hear him talk about someone with as much respect and admiration as he had/has for Coach Thomas.I really liked how encouraging the coaches were - it was very genuine, coming from a place of caring. They were very positive as well - I felt like the coaching staff were very positive role models.
