ABOUT THE CAMPUS
Olds College is located in the quiet and tranquil town of Olds, Alberta. The dining facility, dorm rooms and beautiful college gym are all part of the same building complex. Evening programs are held in the modern alumni centre. The new Ralph Klein Centre is home to a 3 court gym allowing campers to stay almost exclusively on site. Campers will be staying in very nice residential dorms. Each room accommodates two campers, with nearby private shower facilities. These rooms do not have linen and bedding provided and 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 college food service provides multiple all-you-can-eat entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Staff

Shawn Stetson

Shawn works full time at NBC Camps as the Canada Director.  He has run NBC Olds since 2001, and now oversees several NBC locations throughout North America.  A former basketball player at the University of Calgary, he is passionate about creating an amazing camp experience for kids who come to NBC.

Staff

We select outstanding people we believe are of high integrity and character, work ethic and willingness to pour their lives into helping athletes be their best. We work hard to hire college players and coaches, along with high school coaches who are dynamic and competent teachers of the game.


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.

So impressed

I have never been more impressed at any camp as I was when I attended the demonstrating at the end of the camp for parents. Other sports organizations should really consider adopting the leadership and direction this camp has; emphasizing the importance of off-court leadership, friendships, social pressures and dedication. I was impressed how the girls responded to the coaches, who commanded a great amount of respect and attention at all times. Well done NBC!”

Genuine Commitment

This was my sons first time at an NBC camp and he had a wonderful experience. The caliber of instruction and character building was second to none and he will definitely be back next year and plans to attend the VA in Edmonton throughout the year. I was so moved by the closing parent program and the genuine commitment to our children and their families was evident. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who make these life giving experiences for our children possible.

Most phenomenal camp

The most phenomenal camp my daughters have ever attended. My oldest has attended 4 years in a row and we'll be back again next year!!!

Fantastic atmosphere

I came to camp expecting to feel outdone by everyone. I don’t have as much experience as other girls and thought for sure I would constantly be feeling intimidated or inadequate. Instead I was met by many other people who came there with the same motive. To learn. It was a fantastic atmosphere filled with positive attitudes and wonderful people. Not once was I discouraged, even when I didn’t follow a drill there were always people there to help me. It was fun, while we learned. A perfect combination.

No other camp compares

There is no other camp in Alberta that we have found that took our kids to this level of basketball and citizenship. Come prepared for a hard core basketball challenge.

Fantastic experience

 It’s rare and refreshing to experience the benefits of hard work, discipline and laughter all under one roof and in only 5 days! NBC is a fantastic experience!

Welcoming environment

 As the parent of a first-time camper, I was most impressed with the organization and welcoming environment when we got there. On the final day, I was thrilled to see how excited my daughter was after the five days - from the new skills she developed in the game, but also the emotional growth she experienced.

Better player and person

 As a camper of 4 years, I can say that NBC Camps has changed me into a better person. Not only have my basketball skills increased dramatically, but I believe I've become a much better person to everyone around me and have strengthened my relationship with God. I can't wait till NBC every summer because I meet so many new people. The coaches are definitely one of the greatest parts of camp because they're there for you for anything and you really become great friends with them.

Scheduled for next summer

NBC camp was a fantastic experience for my son. He appreciated the positive, encouraging environment, and the intensity of the physical training and skills work. The focus of striving for excellence in all areas of life with instructors demonstrating this in their behavior and interactions with campers made the experience positive on all levels. We will be looking at the schedule for next summer! Thank you.

Changed my life

NBC camp changed my life, I found out a lot about myself as a person as well as a player. At camp you get to interact with people who are similar to you as well as different from you. The coaches are T-U-F-F tuff, and I would recommend this camp to all basketball players.

Best weeks of my life

NBC camp was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Over the week I went, I learned more about basketball, but more importantly about myself, then i could ever imagine. All of the coaches were amazingly friendly, and it was so easy to talk to them about anything. I made a ton of new friends at camp, many whom I have kept in touch with, and a few who I think I will see on the court this year. Thank you NBC for one of the best weeks of my life!!!
