Olds College Nbc Camps Alberta


Olds College is located in the quiet and tranquil town of Olds, Alberta. Evening programs are held in the modern alumni centre. The new Ralph Klein Centre is home to a 3 court gym allowing campers to stay almost exclusively on site. Campers will be staying in a new residential dorm which has one double bed, a shower, toilet and sink. If you would like your child to share a room with a friend we will put them in a room with a cot placed at the end of the bed, or if you prefer they share the bed we can do that too. These rooms do not have linen and bedding provided and are not air-conditioned and we suggest you bring a fan. The college food service is very good and provides a good variety of all-you-can-eat entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Olds College Dorms

Built in 2015, Olds College now boasts immaculate new facilities with hotel-like accommodations which include a private shower, toilet, and sink for each room. All dorm rooms have one double bed, therefore, when you register for the camp you will have three options to chose from for your dorm room request.

Your three Dorm Room options are:

  1. Single room - $40 upgrade
  2. Share a double bed
  3. Share a room. One roommate sleeps on a cot. (rock/paper/scissors)

    So impressed

    I have never been more impressed at any camp as I was when I attended the demonstration at the end of the camp for parents. Other sports organizations should really consider adopting the leadership and direction this camp has; emphasizing the importance of off-court leadership, friendships, social pressures, and dedication. I was impressed how the girls responded to the coaches, who commanded a great amount of respect and attention at all times. Well done NBC!

    Second Year.

    — Brian B. Camper Complete Player

    • 5/5.

    I liked how they built a sense of community and also how they pushed us hard enough that we wanted to fight back but not enough that we hated them. We knew our limits and pushed past them and I haven't had that at any other camp

    Genuine Commitment

    This was my sons first time at an NBC camp and he had a wonderful experience. The caliber of instruction and character building was second to none and he will definitely be back next year and plans to attend the VA in Edmonton throughout the year. I was so moved by the closing parent program and the genuine commitment to our children and their families was evident. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who make these life giving experiences for our children possible.
