About the Campus
The campus is a world unto itself, with no through roads. The Alaska Pacific University campus in Anchorage is one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States, with the Chugach Mountains rising up behind nearly 200 acres of lawns, woods, and University Lake.
Campers will be staying in nice dorms with 2-6 beds available in each room. All roommate requests are assigned at check-in the first day. Each room has private shower facilities. These rooms are not air-conditioned and we suggest you bring a fan.
The cafeteria facility provides an all-you-can-eat salad bar with fresh fruit, hot entrees with beverage, sandwich and cereal stations. The college food service provides multiple all-you-can-eat entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Gyms, cafeteria, and dorms are all within close proximity creating a great family atmosphere for campers.

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. Our volleyball 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 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 volleyball and life skills instruction possible.
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.
