CIC gave me the tools to elevate my game to that next level each year I attended.  I was challenged at every level; mentally. physically. and spiritually.  CIC gave me a taste of what college basketball was going to be like, it prepared me in all those 3 areas.  I have had so much success because I took all those tools learned at camp, and applied them into my individual practice. CIC was not just a eight day camp for me to soon forget all that I had learned.  It became a year round tool for me to improve upon on my game.  Still today I use the the one series in college games, and when I need a 15 minute workout I know where to find it. If your looking for something to prepare you for the college level this is the camp to attend. Spiritually NBC/CIC has helped me to stay strong to what I believe, and has taught me how to be a servant of our Lord.

Camper Reviews

Most beneficial experience

As a former camper and coach at NBC Camps, I can’t think of a situation that would be more beneficial for a young basketball player than the CIC camp. Fred and Jay, and their staff are committed to making each camper the best player, and best person they can be. They will work incredibly hard on the court, but the most inspiring changes will be made in their mind and heart. This is the first step to success in life. I believe and live by the values they teach in this intensive camp.This camp is for  those who want to be to best on and off the court.

Love this camp

Amazing! I can't wait to return next year and show how much I will have improved. I'm hungry and ready to do whatever it takes!”

Most Amazing camp

It was an amazing experience! I learned so much and would love to come back as a coach in the future.

Loved it

 WOW! That pretty much sums it up. CIC has it all. Great coaches, great competition, great atmosphere. It is a top tier camp that I believe easily holds its own and surpasses any other basketball camp in the country on any level. You just can't beat it - all of the life skills and basketball skills learned make this a well rounded camp and will help a player not only develop as a better player, but also as a better person.


  • 5/5.

NBC Camps provided me with great instruction and wonderful role models. Not only was I able to share another week with my older brother Ryan, but I enjoyed getting to know Michael Knight and Jay a little more. They were supportive yet also challenged me.

A privilege to attend

This camp has excellent coaching and staff. I appreciated the caring and encouragement. They treated us very well with very nice facilities, and gear. I appreciated that they kept us well fed. Everyone is treated with respect and expected to perform to the best of their ability. It was a privilege to attend CIC. Thank you!

Best camp

There is no better coaching on the planet. Not only did every coach have an extreme knowledge of the sport of basketball, but they were also knowledgeable about the skills required in life. The life skills learned at camp were just as good and important as the basketball skills that I learned.

Really intense

The CIC camp is one of the most intense camps I've attended. The workouts were great and I'm still doing push ups everyday.

For College players as well

Last year as a first time college athlete, it was hard to know exactly what to expect moving on from high school. With the help of the coaching staff at CIC, I entered camp as a young college player and in that week of intense workouts, I graduated as a much better prepared, more mature college athlete. I strongly recommend the camp to not just high school athletes, but college level athletes as well.

One of the best experiences of my life

My name is Angela and I am a professional basketball coach in Rome. My passion is basketball. At one point, my desire was to be one of Italy’s best players. The highlight of my career was when Italy defeated the USA in the 1993 World Games. I have played basketball at the highest level and I have experienced many great learning opportunities. Today my motivation is to coach Italy’s Olympic team. When I saw NBC Camps for the first time, I knew this would be a great opportunity for me to learn more about coaching basketball, especially the technical and motivational aspects of the game. This past summer I spent 10 days in the United States at CIC CAMP . NBC Camps is fantastic. Being part of NBC Camps is one of the best experiences of my life and I am a better coach for it. NBC Camps will make you a better player, but more importantly, you will be a better person.

Best Camp ever

This is the best camp I've ever been to the staff is great the coaches are first rate. It is just an amazing environment! The life lessons they teach you will stick forever. The life lessons are by far more important than anything they could have taught me basketball wise. I am truly greatful for CIC basketball camp. - Ben W

play at the next level

I like this camp because not only does it teach you about the game of basketball but it teaches you how to become a better person, inside and out. If you want to play at the next level (college), this is the best camp for you to go to.

Well worth flying across the country!

This is the third year I have sent my son to NBC camps, with Crowell Intensity camp being the choice this year. Each year he has improved dramatically and the experience has proven an advantage for Sean as he competes for playing time on a talented varsity team. It is worth flying him across the country for this experience, and I will do so again.

Best experience of the year

We travel at great expense from Hawaii every year to attend NBC Basketball Camps. The profound impact of these camps, the staff, the coaches, and the other campers greatly overshadows the impact of the coaches and teams my daughter experiences during the other 50 weeks of the year. 


  • 5/5.
Plans to carry on goals after camp

I would recommend this camp to others seeing that it helped me to become a better player. Not only am I stronger and more informed on my skills, but I have acquired plans and knowledge to continue to become a better player after the camp had ended.


  • 5/5.
Highly recommend

NBC Camps are amazing. They teach basketball skills and life skills in a created environment that is comfortable and enjoyable. Every year I look forward going to a NBC Camp. The level of competition is great, the staff is always energetic and enthusiastic, and you meet a lot of new kids every year. I would highly recommend NBC Camps if you want to become a better athlete/basketball player and overall person. It is an amazing experience to be a part of one of their camps.

Completely changed by what I encountered

"Expecting a camp similar to my community college summer week experiences, I was shocked, leveled, and completely changed by what I encountered. I hope that NBC continues to grow and push young athletes to become more than they already are. You are teaching more than you know."
