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.

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.
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.
