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.

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.

What a fantastic week

This year was my step-son's first year of NBC. As an NBC Alumni myself I was so excited to share the NBC experience with him. He had a fantastic week and is already talking about next year. Jacob's coach was great and did a wonderful job with the boys on his team. I could see that they had bonded and were playing well together. Jacob learned so much and I am so excited to see him take what he has learned at camp onto the court with his team. We are looking forward to more summers with NBC!

NBC ignites passion for the game of basketball!

Our three children all play or played basketball. They have attended numerous camps, many put on by regional high schools and colleges. After attending an NBC camp all three showed some marginal improvement. However, all three came home with a new attitude, all came home with that "fire burning" to get better, and all became "gym rats". The improvement, due to a new passion for basketball, has been remarkable. NBC camps is the place to "light that fire".

A great experience one generation ago, a great experience today

I grew up going to NBC camps and I loved them. I was so excited to send one of my kids so that he could share the same experience as I did. I was thrilled to hear his experience was as great as mine was many years ago. He is looking forward to many more years of NBC camps. He loved his coach PJ and Coach Colby.

Wonderful experience

I appreciate the faith-based aspect of the camp. My son not only learned about basketball and being part of a team sport, he also learned about building character and being a man of faith.  Actions speak louder than words and the coaches' actions spoke words of encouragement and excellent character. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience!

Level of instruction and unity is amazing

I definitely recommend this camp to any child. I am a single mom so I loved the discipline and life skills teachings as well as teaching respect for the coaches. The level of instruction and unity in one week is amazing.

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.
