We select outstanding people we believe are of high integrity and character, work ethic and willingness to pour their lives into helping athletes be their best. We work hard to hire college players and coaches, along with high school coaches who are dynamic and competent teachers of the game.

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.


Coach the game at a world-class level.  FAB 4
• Protect the ball
• Play with quickness and intensity
• Play Smart
• Finish the play


Teach by living valuable skills for life.   LIFE 4
• Guard your heart
• Live with love & intensity
• Be smart by seeking out wisdom
• Finish strong, never give up

TEC Method
The ability to know, understand and apply is the heart of NBC’s Teach, Encourage, Correct method.  True teaching takes place when the student knows how to reproduce the skill and self-correct the skill when it is wrong.

Complete Skills Junior Day Camps
These camps offer comprehensive skill training, motivation and leadership training, and intensity station all within a 9am to 4pm time frame. These day camps are a perfect introduction for athletes into the NBC Camp program and offer a taste of NBC excellence at a pace and intensity more suitable for younger or more beginning athletes

This basketball camp is designed for athletes to improve their game and have a fun time. We will focus on developing fundamental skills from shooting and attacking the basketball to ball handling and defense. The goal is to help build confidence in a fun and encouraging environment. Athletes ages 6-12 years old can come improve their skills during this 5-day basketball camp.

During this formative time, building skill mastery is crucial. It takes about 50-100 accurate repetitions over three days to learn a new skill. It takes about 2500 accurate repetitions over three weeks to undo a skill learned incorrectly. At NBC Camps, we believe it is worth the investment to help younger athletes learn a skill accurately. We also believe having fun is crucial for future passion. Our Intro camps combine great teaching, high energy, enthusiasm and tons of fun into a camp experience younger athletes will love.\

Live Action Game Focus
This camp is designed for junior athletes who have the basic basketball concepts.  This camp still focuses on fundamental skill training but spends more time working to integrate those skills into organized basketball competition.

Increased confidence

You gave my son the enthusiasm he needed to gain his never-quit attitude. His confidence has gone up, and he has learned some valuable skills. I'm also very happy that this was a Christian camp, so he learned more than just basketball.

Best camp my son has attended

I love the experienced, enthusiastic staff and the great staff to student ratios. I love the Christian values based approach, and the obvious care taken to plan the activities. NBC Camps are the best my son has ever attended - both in quality of instruction and quality of instructors. Please have an Ambrose College camp again next year!!
