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.

Love this camp

NBC Camps is worth every minute. The teams are great, the staff are amazing, and they make it fun but well worth the time. You improve so much and I don’t regret a thing. Greatest thing is you just don’t learn basketball skills, you also learn skills that helps you with everyday life.

Great choice

If you are looking for a camp that encourages strong moral values in athletes while teaching them quality skills NBC Camp is a great choice. It is so refreshing to send your child to a sports camp and have them return excited about sports and about being a good person. NBC Camp will always have great memories for my daughter.

Worth every penny

As my first time at NBC camps I didn't know what to expect. I’ve heard so many things from different people, but one thing I heard from everyone is that they enjoyed it. I got so much out of this camp. How to play my position better, how to really get in there and get more involved in the game. After the week was over, my skill level greatly improved. My coaches said that they saw a tremendous change in my skill level. NBC Camps is definitely worth every penny paid.

Thrilled

My daughter returned from NBC camp with improved basketball skills. We, of course, were pleased. But, we were thrilled to see her growth in confidence and in her ability to make good decisions and to act out her faith.
