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

Teach by living valuable skills for life.   LIFE 4

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.

Camper Reviews


  • 5/5.

I liked how enthusiastic all the coaching staff was. I liked my discussion group and getting to know my team better. I liked how coaches spot lighted girls for hard work, and I liked when they asked us to spot light each other because I like to make others feel special. It also made me feel special and rewarded when I heard my name. I liked intensity night even though I was really hard, and the floor was soaked with sweat. I liked playing in the All Star game with girls who worked really hard and deserved to be there. I liked getting to learn the post position since I normally play at guard.

NBC Camps was a great  camp.  Intensity night was the best and you should do it again. It was nice to meet some new people and I learned a lot about basketball and I got better.

NBC develops the "whole person"

The focus on developing the whole person makes it a two for one camp experience. The fact that christian values are recognized and valued was critical to our camp selection. This was my daughters second year in a row!!! Thank you for providing inspirational role models, core values and great basketball!!!! I will continue to sing the camps praises!!!! Thank you!!!

Great staff!

My son started going to the NIC NBC camp three years ago. My son has ADHD and has since kindergarten. Your staff did not complain or call us during that whole week. The next year my son had a different medication that helped in focus. The coach even said what an improvement he had made. My son loves this camp because they accept him for who he is...thank you.
