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.

Loved camp

I LOVED my time at the Pure Shooting Camp in Washington! Katie, my coach, was very inspiring and motivated me like no other coach before her. I am a more confident player and person now. Her personal story, triumph and belief in me will remain with me always.

Fantastic time

"My daughter Gracie has a fantastic time at camp. She learned so much about not only basketball but about being a nice and appreciative person. I will definitely be sending her and her brother next year. Thank you so much for an awesome experience.”

Best camp

The coaches are amazing, and everyone really like each other. There is a lot of time for balling which makes it so fun, and all of the hard work outs feel so amazing the next day.”

So pleased

The staff was great! They were very professional and respectful to the parents and kids. Being that this was my son's first camp, I was paranoid about his staying overnight so I switched him to extended days. Now, after experiencing the camp I wish I would have let him stay overnight. Next time!!!!! NBC has improved my child's basketball skills.

Best camp

 “The atmosphere at NBC camps is like no other camp that you could attend. There is always so much to learn, people to meet, and friends to make! It is a challenging camp but it helps you become a better player and develops your skills. Along with helping you become a better player, NBC camps also help you to become a better person: on and off the court. They teach leadership skills that greatly apply to sports as well as everyday life. NBC camps are one of a kind!” -

So impressed

My daughter just did this for the first time, rooming with a friend that had done it before. We did not know what to expect, having only some details, but man, were we impressed. I think one of her sisters will be coming next year too!”

Brandon has gone to NBC for 3 years now. If he continues to want to go, I will support him. I like him to be surrounded by good people, and I have been very impressed with the coaches and other kids.

Loved it

When I leave camp I always feel more confident in my basketball skills and really know what it means to be a part of a positive team. I really look forward to my next time at NBC camp.

NBC Camps is a blast because you get to meet new people with different skill levels. The camp is Christian based and they help you become not just a better player, but a better person.

Improved my shooting

I learned a ton from it, and it was a great experience. I learned how to shoot the proper way, and increased my shooting percentage by a lot. I learned a bunch of ways to get by my defenders. Overall it’s just a great camp and I would gladly go back next year.

Incredible week of camp

 My daughter had an absolutely incredible week at Auburn all-star camp. It was definitely a life changing experience. She is an amazing athlete- trying to decide what she wants to play in college, volleyball or basketball. Coming into this week she was definitely leaning toward D1 volleyball. After this week, she is back in the fence and excited about basketball again. The spiritual aspect of the camp is so important to her. Thanks for making every camper feel like they matter regardless of their ability. NBC is one of a kind.

Learned what it takes to go to the next level

My daughter came away from the All-Star camp with a desire to consistently practice and improve her skills. She learned that if she wants to get to the next level, she needs to work at it year-round. I like that they teach the kids to be coachable by reinforcing accountability, respect and a positive mental attitude. My daughter said that it not only made her better at basketball, but it made her a better person. Thank you NBC! Signed, A Very Satisfied Parent of an All-Star Camper

Surpassed expectations

I was afraid of leaving my daughter after hearing about the intensity level and expectations during parent orientation. I kept expecting a phone call from the camp to come pick her up, but instead received a phone call from an exuberant child. With the support of the coaches, camp staff, and her teammates, my daughter rose to the occasion and surpassed her expectations and mine. She developed not only as a basketball player, but as a person. Amanda Mom of Daughter age 12

Lasts a lifetime

NBC Basketball camp has been one of the most beneficial activities my sons have ever participated in. Not only do they learn and improve on basketball skills and team work, they have the opportunity to look at their lives and make improvements. They will carry the messages they learned at camp with them for a lifetime.

Basketball skills have grown like crazy

 My son went to the NBC boys basketball camp July 2010. He went alone with no friends. He had never done anything like this alone before and I had a hard time letting him go. It was so life changing for him. He seems so much more mature. He wants to play basketball at the college level...He loved his coach so much. He had never had a coach that didn't cuss at the kids before going to NBC. There is so much he got and learned at camp that I could go on and on. His basketball skills have grown like crazy, he has more confidence. He said it was the hardest thing he ever went through and he wants to do it again!!!

Became a better shooter

Camp taught me exactly what I signed up for. The shooting camp made me a better shooter. I also enjoyed making new friends.

What more could we ask for?

My son has NOW participated three years in a row attending summer basketball camp. He returns consistently to say that he worked hard, ate well, and learn a great deal about basketball, all while having fun. As parents, we have noticed he becomes more and more vocal how important this camp is to him, and appreciative we continue to sponsor the cost. What more can we ask for?

Highly recommend

NBC camp was always something I wanted to attend growing up, but was not able to due to my parents financial situation. Now as a parent, I get the opportunity to see the growth as a player and person my son gets from attending NBC. In a way, I am getting the chance to see NBC through my son and it is totally worth it. I can already see him changing as a player and young man. He is also making friends with other players which will make great peers for him growing up. My son loved the camp and so do I. We plan on him attending every year from here on out and we have three future campers on the way as well. I highly recommend NBC to any future players.

Leading to lead on and off the court

NBC Camps are amazing. My boys have participated the last 3 summers. They not only come home better basketball players but better people as well. It is awesome to watch the coaches inspire and encourage their teams during Intensity Night. I also appreciate the high quality instruction given at these camps as well as the Christian emphasis. What I find most amazing are the stories my boys come home with about the life experiences their coaches have shared with them. My boys are learning what it takes to be a leader on and off the court by coming to these camps. We have told many families about NBC Camps and we will continue to do so. Thank you so much for making this such a wonderful experience for our boys.
