More confident

• “I think that I am a stronger more confident player after attending this camp. I look forward to using the new skills that I learned while at camp to help my JV High School Team win. I will continue to practice and work hard at the game of basketball. CAMP WAS SO MUCH FUN!”

Loved it

My favorite night was Intensity night. It showed me that I was capable of pushing myself. My hard work paid off. My coach was great and helped me improve different skills.


  • 5/5.

It makes you push yourself further than you would think basketball and conditioning wise. I also liked the devotions every night that help with your walk with God.

So grateful

This was the first time my son attended this type of camp and he had such a positive experience! I cannot express the gratitude I felt when he gave his feedback. His coach instilled a confidence in him he didn't have when he started.

Highly recommend

I have been extremely pleased with NBC Camps. My boys have attended multiple years and I highly recommend NBC to everyone.


  • 5/5.

This experience has been incredible. I met great people, and will go back every summer. I learned so much, and had so much fun. I learned things about myself I never knew before. I'm not bragging, but I was really proud of myself. I did more than I thought I could. Thank you and see you next year.

Great Time

I had a great time at this camp. I learned a ton about basketball and shooting, but I learned even more about respect and building character. I really hope I will be able to attend this camp next year.

Skills for sport and life

NBC Camp is the best thing that I have ever done! I love how you not only learn the skills you need for your sport, but the skills you need for life as well. NBC Camp is a truly indescribable experience that I will never forget, and look forward to all year!

NBC is a cut above the rest

I recommend this camp to any individual regardless of their skill level. I have played basketball on many levels from local, traveling competitive and high school basketball. I have been to several basketball camps and by far NBC Camps has taught me a lot about physical and mental toughness I have not seen in any other camps.

Improves body, mind, and soul

My son has attended NBC Basketball Camps at Simpson University in Redding, CA., the last two years. He always calls so excited and has nothing but great things to say about the camp and its staff. This year he called home after the much anticipated "intensity night." He always says it's the hardest thing they do, but it is the one thing he looks forward to the most. At the end of the camp when I pick him up he always says he will be coming back next year, and maybe would like to be a coach in the future. It has been the best all around camp he has ever attended. The staff is truly caring about the body, mind and soul. Thank you NBC for providing positive leadership during a time when there is so much negativity in this world.

The energy and new found confidence that our son returned home with is invaluable! He now has the refined skills, plus mental mind to now take on the Big Dogs and have them follow him. Thank you so much for caring for each camper the way your coaches' do, wonderful experience and very well organized.

Excellent experience

This is an excellent experience for young players who want to improve; however, to get the most from the camp, the player must be self motivated or the camp may be too intense.


  • 5/5.
Lots of fun

The NBC camp was lots of fun and it challenged me to get better. The intensity night was definitely hard but fun at the same time. It was great!

We love NBC

This was my 6th year and 2nd for my brother at NBC Simpson. We have brought as many as 5 additional teammates to one camp. Several of them now come on their own without our pushing. So, obviously we love NBC. Keep up the great program and we will see you again in 2011.

Get your money's worth

NBC Camps changed my life. My outlook on life, let alone basketball has changed. Parents if you send your kids to NBC, you will see that change occur in your child. They start by teaching your child self-discipline, because the coaches don't enjoy disciplining. They understand that your kids are there to play basketball, not to run a million suicides. The coaches provide guidance and are ALWAYS open to talk about anything. They will get up early or stay up late to work on your child's game. Everyone from the coaches to the trainer brings an excellent attitude to every day and drill. There is little downtime so you know your kids are working the whole time and getting your money's worth. This camp is excellent and I really hope that you send your kids to an NBC Camp.
