NBC Camps Founder Fred Crowell
NBC Camps began in 1971 as Northwest Basketball Camp. Founder Fred Crowell thought it a leap of faith to call it “Northwest” Basketball camp as he began the first camp held in Cusick, Washington, with 108 campers. Crowell, at the age of twenty-three became one of the youngest Division 1 coaches in America.
Under his coaching, University of Alaska Fairbanks had its first winning season in the history of the college. He left Alaska and joined Campus Crusade for Christ as the first coach for Athletes in Action, a program facing top 20 teams night after night, sharing a message of community and wholeness, and developing into an exhibition team with one of the most wins in history.
Basketball Dreams Come True
Crowell dreamed of a basketball camp that would train athletes to win both on and off the court. He wanted a program that would provide the best basketball training, create an atmosphere of encouragement, hard work, respect and compassion, and teach athletes to compete not only physically but with their hearts and minds. Coach Crowell combined his background of Division 1 coaching with his psychology background as a former family counselor. He wanted to give athletes an edge to physically, mentally and spiritually achieve the disciplined life of excellence. Many told Crowell his idea of combining athletics, faith and values were unrealistic. Now, 40 years later, Crowell’s dream has become reality as his vision has expanded to include multiple sports with over 10,000 athletes competing in NBC Camps programs around the world.
