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.


Coach the game at a world-class level.  FAB 4
• Protect the ball
• Play with quickness and intensity
• Play Smart
• Finish the play


Teach by living valuable skills for life.   LIFE 4
• Guard your heart
• Live with love & intensity
• Be smart by seeking out wisdom
• Finish strong, never give up

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.

Absolutely loves NBC

I would highly recommend NBC Camp at Whitworth University to anyone who is looking to really improve their game. The coaches are amazing and my son always leaves this camp so happy and feeling more confident in his basketball abilities. He tells me that NBC is the only basketball camp he absolutely loves and looks forward to. And we've tried a few. Thanks, NBC Camps!

Focous on Important Things!

My husband and I love NBC Camps. We both went to NBC Camps ourselves. I love the characteristics and teachings.

Best camp

NBC Camps, unlike other basketball camps I have been to, focused not only on basketball but also on leadership skills and what it takes to be successful.

Life changing

Jamie has been attending NBC Camps for 3-4 years now; clinics, Varsity Academy, summer camps and hopes to be a Junior Counselor one year. It is not summer vacation anymore without attending NBC Camps. It is one summer event she looks forward to every year. She always walks away with more positive basketball fundamentals and life skills. If this is your first time sending your child, you will not be disappointed. My 10 year old attended by herself as an overnight camper and became lonesome, the staff was very helpful in assuring she was comfortable and accommodated her request to have a roommate(s) and assured me as a parent she was taken care of. ALL NBC staff seem to have the same enthusiasm as the first day of camp to the very last day at closing. I strongly believe NBC Camps are life changing transformations for all kids who attend. Looking forward to my daughters attending in the future. Thank you.

Awesome coaches

This is a great place to learn how to be a better person and a better basketball player. The coaches are always positive and lifting you up and they really care about you. 


  • 5/5.

I really like that NBC Camps incorporates life lessons and skills as well as basketball skills. To improve your physical skills in a sport, you often need to improve your attitude and thought process first. NBC Camps do a great job teaching that concept! 


  • 5/5.
Great camp

I had a great time and learned stuff to elevate my game. The staff was great at helping me improve with every little detail.


  • 5/5.
Fantastic experience

I thought the entire experience was fantastic! I loved being able to play all day then doing other activities after camp rather than just go back to our rooms. Camp not only showed me the skills to be a better player but gave me the mindset to be the best I can be.


  • 5/5.

It was a lot of fun. The coaches were outstanding and had very good coaching ability which helped me personally. Really good food. Thank you.

Growing as a player and as a person

I attended NBC camps as a student athlete and am excited to see my daughter now attend NBC camps. She had every bit as much fun as I did. Listening to her talk about her growth as a player and a person was very satisfying. See you next year!

Best camp in the region

NBC camps are a vast improvement over other camps in the area. They work on the whole player, not just basketball. My daughter came away more knowledgeable about basketball as well as knowing a positive attitude makes a difference. 

Cindy S.Parent

Thoroughly Impressed

We were thoroughly impressed with the staff, facilities, and overall experience of our son at NBC Camp on the Whitworth University Campus. We saw him grow in his confidence as well as mature even more into a young man of integrity and faith.

So worth it!

NBC Camps teaches you how to be an all-around great basketball player and an outstanding person. They teach you about encouragement, life skills, and importance in yourself, your family, your friends, and much more. The coaches and staff are super! They will help you understand something better if you are having trouble with anything and they are a great influence on the players to be a better person and basketball player. You also play many fun games and do tons of fun activities. NBC camp is so worth it!

Ethan Camper

Whole lot more

NBC camp was a week of high energy, fun activities, goal setting and personal development. I only thought it was a basketball camp, but I came away with a whole lot more. I'm now more goal oriented and focused on the things I want to achieve as basketball player and as a person.


  • 5/5.

I would recommend this camp to everyone!! This has helped my daughter with many of her basketball skills and her life skills. She came home with new ideas and a wonderful confidence about herself!

Caroline Parent

Summer highlight

My daughter has attended NBC Camps for the last 3 summers and it has helped her improve dramatically each year! She has been motivated to push herself outside her comfort zone and challenge herself beyond what she thought was possible in her intensity and focus! She has become a fearless competitor because of the excellent instruction in fundamentals, self-discipline, and goal-making, as well as the encouragement in her spiritual walk. She has also met many new friends that she continues to stay in contact with. NBC Camp has become the highlight of her summer and she can't wait to go back each year!

Thank you

NBC Camp was probably one of the best camps I have ever been to. They taught life skills along with basketball and team work. The coaches and staff were all really nice and ready to help. I would encourage all to try for the Golden Ruler because it really challenges you. I did it and it was hard, but I am so glad I did it. Thank you!

Rich R.Parent

Better players and people

NBC Camp is more than a basketball camp! I have brought three kids the past two years and I have seen growth from them as people as well as basketball players.


  • 5/5.
Won't be disappointed

My daughter has gone to NBC camps for 3 summers and it has been an awesome experience. We see the vast improvement each time basketball season comes around. If you are thinking about sending you child, DO IT! You won't be disappointed.
