Bound on three sides by a residential area, the Newberg campus of George Fox University borders Hess Creek. George Fox University campers will be staying in beautiful residential dorms. Each room accommodates two campers, with nearby private shower facilities. These rooms are not air-conditioned and we suggest you bring a fan. You do not need to request a roommate before camp begins. When you sign up for a room, have your preferred roommate with you. If you have no preference, we will match you with someone of the same gender and similar age. The cafeteria facility provides an all-you-can-eat salad bar with fresh fruit, hot entrees with beverage, sandwich and cereal stations. GFU's large gym features three full courts. Campers will alternate using offsite gyms to provide maximum space for games and training.
George Fox does have a pool available to the campers. It is a park & recreation public pool that is next door to the campus. They will only use this pool as a group and have sufficient supervision.

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.
