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 sole 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.

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.

Shooting and Attack Moves Camp focuses on basketball’s most crucial skill: shooting. At this camp NBC staff work with campers to gain greater depth as a shooter as well as honing offensive moves. The focus of this camp is to become an offensive threat on the court. All athletes receive video analysis of their shot, personal evaluation and drills and skills designed for improvement.

Complete Player Camps focus on the crucial keys to becoming a great player. We break our teaching into four focus areas: Individual offense, defense, shooting and team skills.  Campers are separated into teaching groups and teams based on their age and ability. These camps are not for the beginning basketball player. Athletes who attend must have a fair amount of experience and ability appropriate for 6 to 8 hours a day of basketball.  We recommend our junior camp option to younger or more beginner athletes.

Complete Player Camps are highly recommended and emphasis extensive skill development, intensity, enthusiasm, leadership, and team. Many athletes who have attended our program go on to play at the college level and beyond. NBC Camps full-time staff work year round to make NBC Camps the premier basketball camp in the world.  One of the highlights of this week is Intensity Night.  Enjoy tournaments, games, amazing staff who care about helping you become the best person you can be.



CU is located at the edge of the Rocky Mountains in Lakewood, a suburb ten minutes west of Denver. Colorado Christian is a NCAA Division II school competing in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

If you have no preference, we will match you with someone of the same gender and similar age. Two room apartment style dorms-sleep two to a room, with a shared bathroom for 4 people. There is no air-conditioning so we suggest you bring a fan.

Camper Reviews

Jordan W. Camper

  • 5/5.

This camp has an atmosphere that takes the intensity and seriousness of the sport to the next level. It's not just a camp it's an eye opening experience that reinvents the idea of being a great athlete. Not only do you learn and grow in being an athlete, but you grow in your faith and learn to work as a team. I believe NBC is here for us to learn how to use the talents God gave us for his glory, and to use our talents to share it with the rest of the world. -

Two Thumbs up!

Two thumbs up! My son returned from camp with more confidence, not just in his game but attitude on and off the court. We have already told about 20 people about it. See you next year.

Positive environment

I would recommend NBC Colorado. I think it is a wonderful positive environment. I appreciate the staff and my girls enjoyed themselves even though they said they "worked". Keep up the great work.

Couldn't be happier

My son has gone to NBC Camps for the second year and I can't be happier. He improved as a person as well as a basketball player. I would definitely send my kid again.

Total camp

NBC Camps truly makes the effort to promote leadership and a standard of excellence. I have been to camps where the teaching was good, or not at all, but it didn't stick with me. When I came home from NBC Camp, I had a real desire to be different and make a difference, not just as a high school player, but also as a person. NBC Camp challenged me beyond what I thought was my limit, and it gave me clear ways to be a leader and set goals both athletically and spiritually. It is truly the total camp for the total athlete!!!

More confidence

This camp gave me a lot more confidence. It's challenging but in the end it pays off. By the end of the week I felt like me and all the girls were a team. I built friendships and grew a lot within myself. This camp changed me for the better.

Great time

My son had a great time at your camp. He felt he had good skills going into camp but came back with a whole new attitude on sportsmanship, team work, skill building and wonderful group of new friends.


  • 5/5.
Just the thing

NBC camp was just the thing to encourage my son in his favorite sport to be all that he can be, including the leader he's meant to be, using the God given talent he's been blessed with! He was encouraged to work hard to achieve the goals he set and to understand how much he can achieve with hard work and dedication.

Great camp

NBC Camps is a camp where you learn to be pushed out of your comfort level. I was there all by myself and it was the first time I had ever done that, and I still loved it. There were about 38 girls there and it was fantastic! They encouraged us 24/7 and my shooting had definitely improved throughout the week. NBC Camps was a great camp and I look forward to possibly going back next year!
