About the campus
Located in the heart of rural England, Malvern St James School is a beautiful setting for camp.
Campers will be staying in a nice residential dormitory. Each room accommodates between two and ten campers, with nearby bathroom facilities. You do not need to request a roommate before camp begins. When you register for camp, have your preferred roommate(s) with you and we will endeavour to room you together. If you have no preference, we will match you with someone of the same gender and similar age. The cafeteria and food service provides nutritious meals, with an all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet.
St. James swimming pool
Malvern St James has a swimming pool on site, which we will be able to use during the camp. If you’d like to take advantage of this facility, please remember your swim stuff!
The basketball venues
The school has a brand new sports hall, with multiple courts and a second sports hall - “The Dome. In addition, there is a large outdoor Astroturf area. You will not be short of hoops to practice and play at! A basketball enthusiasts’ dream!

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.
TEACH BASKETBALL AND LIFE SKILLS AT A “WORLD CLASS” LEVEL
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

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.
The Thursday of camp is D-Day. A day on which we will push you to your limit both physically and mentally. If you are up for a challenge, this is the place to be…. St. James
We run a special Carnival on one night of our camp, when campers compete against staff and each other in fun games. Popular games in the past have been 1 v 1 and 2 v 2 against our coaches! A wonderful way to relax after an intense day at camp.
On our last night of camp, we have a late night pizza feast to round off the camp experience.
Parents are welcome to attend any aspect of camp. We would particularly like to encourage parents join us for the All Star games, League finals and closing Award Ceremony on the final day at camp. As we understand that many parents will be traveling to Malvern from various parts of the country we would like to offer the option to join us for a buffet lunch on the last day at a cost of £5. Lunch vouchers will need to be pre-booked and will be issued before the day.
Camp registration starts at 1pm at Malvern St James,15 Avenue Rd, Great Malvern, Worcestershire WR14 3BA United Kingdom.
