Best volleyball experience
I would like to recommend this camp to anyone who loves volleyball! This camp over the past two years has been the best volleyball experiences I've ever had!
This camp is awesome! No matter what your skill level is, this camp is right for you. The coaches are amazing and very approachable. But be ready for intensity night! They don't call it that just to scare you! Even though I was sore the whole time I had lots of fun and would definitely recommend this camp to you or any one else.
This was my daughter's first time away from home on a camp and she was very nervous. Now she can't wait to go back, excellent camp!
If you come to this camp you will not be able to prepare yourself for the amazing experiences and hard work they will put you through. It is well worth it.
— Ally J. Camper
NBC camp not only gave my daughter new volleyball skills; she came home with a new sense of self-confidence. I highly recommend this camp!
— Kris F. Parent
My daughter LOVED the NBC Volleyball camp-she wanted another week! The coaches were all very qualified, energetic and encouraging. They worked hard and played hard. The facility was great and having the dorm room to call "home" for the week was great. She loved it and will be returning in the years to come
GO, GO, GO!!!! Talk about a positive place for teen girls to be! The coaches show the girls how to be strong, not only physically but mentally. When I came to pick my daughter up from camp, you could see it in all the girls' faces; the fun times they had and the excitement to get out there and accomplish the next task that came their way. What a week!
— Jen C. Parent
Great for all ages
I had the youngest camper there this year and I felt completely safe leaving her. Everyone was really friendly, and the kids were too.
Camp has helped me become a better player by not making me so shy.
