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 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.

Our camps elevate skill level through intensive skill training. We break down each skill into specific portions which ingrain the skill and creates "muscle memory."  The intensity of our camps help maximize the heightened environment necessary for growth. Our camps are high energy, fun, and unlike any other camp experience. Come elevate your game and change your life.



The Newberg campus of George Fox University borders Hess Creek. NBC GFU campers will stay 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.

Best Camp

This was the best camp I have been to and I had a lot of fun. I thought  the coaches were nice and coached well. I loved intensity night and wish I could do it again. 


  • 5/5.

I like that it is a lot of drills and games, but I also like that there is such a positive atmosphere, with a "Do the right thing" attitude during the entire camp, and the evening programs are good also.

You should come

This is a camp that you should send your kids to. Everyone gets equal amount of coach time, and they work with everyone at the level they are at. But most importantly it has a positive energy and you feel it right away. Coaches were excellent and the food was great! Loved this camp and will attend next year. Even the kids that came were very friendly. 


  • 5/5.

NBC Camps do not just build muscle or skill level or interest in your sport, they build character. They help athletes shape themselves as players, leaders and people. 


  • 5/5.

I was totally inspired to work hard and get better on my own for my next year’s season. I even invited my Mom and Dad to do the workout; it was tough and will get anyone into good shape!


  • 5/5.
Loved it

My son came back very excited and had only positive things to say about camp. As a parent I found the camp to be very well organized and extremely positive. All of the NBC Team were friendly and helpful.

Come again

I loved that that the coaches are always excellent, you learn what you came for, you make new friends, and it makes you want to come over and over again. 



  • 5/5.

It's amazing how the coaches motivate the kids! My son is practicing every day now.

Stick with it.

NBC has been one of the most dominant influences on my basketball game. It's taught me to stick with it even when things get tough and i become discouraged, and push harder.
