Most beneficial Experience

As a former camper and coach at NBC Camps, I can’t think of a situation that would be more beneficial for a young basketball player than the CIC camp. Fred and Jay, and their staff are committed to making each camper the best player, and best person they can be. They will work incredibly hard on the court, but the most inspiring changes will be made in their mind and heart. This is the first step to success in life. I believe and live by the values they teach in this intensive camp.This camp is for  those who want to be to best on and off the court.

Loved it

 WOW! That pretty much sums it up. CIC has it all. Great coaches, great competition, great atmosphere. It is a top tier camp that I believe easily holds its own and surpasses any other basketball camp in the country on any level. You just can't beat it - all of the life skills and basketball skills learned make this a well rounded camp and will help a player not only develop as a better player, but also as a better person.

Incredible

NBC Camps provided me with great instruction and wonderful role models. Not only was I able to share another week with my older brother Ryan, but I enjoyed getting to know Michael Knight and Jay a little more. They were supportive yet also challenged me.

A privilege to attend

This camp has excellent coaching and staff. I appreciated the caring and encouragement. They treated us very well with very nice facilities, and gear. I appreciated that they kept us well fed. Everyone is treated with respect and expected to perform to the best of their ability. It was a privilege to attend CIC. Thank you!

Best camp

There is no better coaching on the planet. Not only did every coach have an extreme knowledge of the sport of basketball, but they were also knowledgeable about the skills required in life. The life skills learned at camp were just as good and important as the basketball skills that I learned.

The CIC camp is one of the most intense camps I've attended. The workouts were great and I'm still doing push ups everyday.

Best Camp ever

This is the best camp I've ever been to the staff is great the coaches are first rate. It is just an amazing environment! The life lessons they teach you will stick forever. The life lessons are by far more important than anything they could have taught me basketball wise. I am truly greatful for CIC basketball camp. - Ben W

play at the next level

I like this camp because not only does it teach you about the game of basketball but it teaches you how to become a better person, inside and out. If you want to play at the next level (college), this is the best camp for you to go to.

Well worth flying across the country!

This is the third year I have sent my son to NBC camps, with Crowell Intensity camp being the choice this year. Each year he has improved dramatically and the experience has proven an advantage for Sean as he competes for playing time on a talented varsity team. It is worth flying him across the country for this experience, and I will do so again.

Best experience of the year

We travel at great expense from Hawaii every year to attend NBC Basketball Camps. The profound impact of these camps, the staff, the coaches, and the other campers greatly overshadows the impact of the coaches and teams my daughter experiences during the other 50 weeks of the year.

Plans to carry on goals after camp

I would recommend this camp to others seeing that it helped me to become a better player. Not only am I stronger and more informed on my skills, but I have acquired plans and knowledge to continue to become a better player after the camp had ended.

Highly recommend

NBC Camps are amazing. They teach basketball skills and life skills in a created environment that is comfortable and enjoyable. Every year I look forward going to a NBC Camp. The level of competition is great, the staff is always energetic and enthusiastic, and you meet a lot of new kids every year. I would highly recommend NBC Camps if you want to become a better athlete/basketball player and overall person. It is an amazing experience to be a part of one of their camps.
