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
• Finish strong, never give up
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.
At The Warehouse each summmer, NBC Camps offers beginner camps for young athletes called Rookie Camps. We also offer a slightly more advanced camp than the Rookie Camps called Complete Player Junior Camp. Both are perfect for helping players improve their game during the summer in a fun and encouraging setting. See more details below.Show Less See More Camp Details
Rookie Basketball Day Camps (3 days)
Campers for the Rookie Camps should bring their own basketball, water bottle, and completed medical release waiver.
These Rookie Camps are designed for boys and girls ages 6-9 that play basketball or have a desire to learn. We will focus on teaching fundamental skills while providing a fun and encouraging summer camp setting. We want to help kids improve athletic coordination as well as build confidence and interest in the game of basketball. Come ready to learn and have lots of fun during these three-day camps.
Basketball Skills Junior Day Camp (5 days)
Campers for the Junior Basketball Day Camp should bring a sack lunch, their own basketball, water bottle, and completed medical release waiver.
Junior Day Camps focus on the crucial keys for young athletes to become excellent at the game of basketball. These camps are similar to our overnight camps but are specifically designed for the younger athlete. The intensity, curriculum and schedule is more conducive for a younger athlete and we highly recommend this camp as a starting point for the younger player before coming to any overnight camp. We break our teaching into four focus areas: Individual offense, defense, shooting and team skills. Campers are separated into teaching groups and teams based on their age and ability.
Complete Player Camps emphasize extensive skill development, intensity, enthusiasm, leadership, and team work. NBC Camps full-time staff work year round to make NBC Camps the premier basketball camp in the world.
NBC Camps is the largest overnight basketball camp program in the world. We focus on total skill development emphasizing training the total athlete. Our camps elevate skill level through intensive skill training. We break down each skill into specific portions which ingrain the skill and creates "muscle memory." The intensity of our camps help maximize the "heightened" environment necessary for growth. Our camps are high energy, fun, and unlike any other camp experience.

Camp Questions & Answers
What is the intensity level at this camp?
The junior complete skills camp is designed for players who are relatively new to the game and may not be quite ready for an overnight camp. The intensity level will be age and ability appropriate. While we aim to challenge and push young players, we also keep in mind the full-day schedule. We typically will provide a balance of learning, practice, fun, and competition suitable for this age group.
The rookie camps are specifically designed for beginners, 6-9 year olds who are very new to the game or who have never played. These camps are fun and provide an introduction to the motor skills necessary for basketball.
What size ball should my child bring to camp?
For athletes under 11, we typically would recommend a 27.5 ball, however some at this age are comfortable with the 28.5. This is the size used for women's basketball through the professional ranks. Boys/young men should begin the transition to a 29.5 ball in late middle school and exclusively in high school.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Good balance of activities
Just the right balance between skill building, games, and motivational talks.
— Kammi S. Parent Rookie Day Camp
Worked as a team and really promoted good sportsmanship.
— Brittney M. Parent Rookie Day Camp
Loved the coaches
My camper loved the coaches.
— Mary C. Parent Basketball Skills
NBC camp made me realize how to be a better person on and off the court.
— Owen M. Camper
Coaches gave great instruction!
— Laura F. Camper
Lots of skills taught in a short amount of time. Fun games/drills to learn the skills.
— Nicole S. Camper
I like the way they break down the game (no dribbling is a great way for little kids or else the best player dribbles everywhere and then shoots. No real teamwork) Like the life/sportsmanship lessons.
— Lisa F. Camper
He Loved It!
My son said it was super fun and all the coaches were great and nice. He loved it! He got a lot of good skills and games he can continue to work on.
— Shelley Parent Complete Player
Taught me to be better
NBC taught me important life skills and values as well as how to play basketball better.
— Courtney G. camper
Impressed with coaches
I was impressed with the way the coaches intergrated "having fun" directly into the drills with the chants, etc. When you have a child who does not like to have attention on him, it forces them to step outside their comfort zone...and mine did so with a smile, which was so nice to see.
— Barbara H. Parent
I liked how kind and encouraging the coaches were. They helped me one on one before camp started. I would have liked more actual scrimmages.
— Parker T. Junior Camper
It was good, just a little confusing the first day.
