Flying into All-Star Camp?

Due to the increased volume of out-of-town campers for this week of camp, NBC Camps helps coordinate shuttle service.  If you fly into the SPOKANE airport, an NBC representative will be waiting at the airport to greet you and help you coordinate your shuttle pick-up to the camp with other incoming athletes.  The shuttle is pre-arranged by NBC CAMPS and can be purchased for $25 each way.  A shuttle back to the airport at the end of the week will also be coordinated by NBC CAMPS.  You may purchase the NBC Shuttle at online registration or call 1-800-406-3926 at any time.  Please no unaccompanied minors.  Check with the airlines before making arrangements.

Once you have purchased the NBC Shuttle please send  flight information to  Purchase of NBC Shuttle must be made two weeks prior to camp.  You will be contacted before your camp to confirm final travel arrangements.

Please note:
1. NBC CAMPS coordinates the shuttle service, but does not assume responsibility for the actual transportation to and from the airport and an NBC REPRESENTATIVE may or not be in the vehicle.
2. In order to be met by a NBC representative and receive assistance with your transportation to the camp, you will need to arrive the morning that your camp begins (preferably between 9:00am and 11:15am and the shuttle will depart by Noon), as the camp check-in begins at 12:30pm.  We are not able to assist you if you arrive a night early. Your return flight home should depart after 6pm on the final day of your session.  If you have a late arrival or early departure on the final day, we may be able to assist you, but there may be an additional fee.  For departures, our camp concludes at 4:00pm so it would be ideal to fly out at 6:00pm or later on the final day of camp.
3. If there are less than 4 campers that are in need of transportation assistance on a given start/end date, we reserve the right to coordinate other shuttle arrangements with the family.

Please coordinate all flight information with the Camp Director John Fazio at Subject: All-Star Camp Airport Shuttle.

Best Camp

NBC camps are known for improving basketball skills in young adults, but the life lessons shared and encouraged by the camp are the "take aways" I appreciate the most. The coaches and support staff teach life skills/lessons that will always be important as my son finds his way through life. Thank you for using basketball as a vessel to create and encourage the best out of the children you serve.


  • 5/5.
Loved it!

I love how NBC makes you work on moves and your skills that way I know I am learning new stuff or getting better at the old. They also run intense camps which help you on the court with teammates.


  • 5/5.

Best Camp

NBC Camps, unlike other basketball camps I have been to, focused not only on basketball but also leadership skills and what it takes to be successful.

Life Changing

Jamie has been attending NBC for 3-4 years now; clinics, Varsity Academy, summer camps and privileged to be a Junior Counselor one year. It is not summer vacation anymore without attending NBC Camps. It is one summer event she looks forward to every year. She always walks away with more positive basketball fundamentals and life skills. If this is your first time sending your child, you will not be disappointed. My 10 year attended by herself as an overnight camper and became lonesome, the staff was very helpful in assuring she was comfortable and accommodated her request to have a roommate(s) and assured me as a parent she was taken care of. ALL NBC staff seem to have the same enthusiasm as the first day of camp to the very last day at closing. I strongly believe NBC Camps are life changing transformations for all kids who attend. Looking forward to my daughters attending in the future. Thank you.

Great job

“I really like that NBC Camps incorporate life lessons and skills as well as basketball skills. To improve your physical skills in a sport, you often need to improve your attitude and thought process first. NBC Camps do a great job teaching that concept!”

Great Position Camp

I had a great time and learned stuff to elevate my game. The staff was great at helping me improve with every little detail.


  • 5/5.
Loved it!!

I thought the entire experience was fantastic! I loved being able to play all day then doing other activities after camp rather than just go back to our rooms. Camp not only showed me the skills to be a better player, but game me the mindset to be the best I can be.


  • 5/5.
Great camp

It was a lot of fun. The coaches were outstanding and very good coaching ability which helped me personally. Really good food. Thank you.

The Best

The overall attitude and message of NBC Camps are top notch! My daughter comes home from her week with the NBC crew with a new sense of self, some great life skills, leadership skills, and elevated self-esteem....priceless! Coach Erica and Coach Whitney share themselves with the girls in a way that really develops trust and builds relationships which is not always easy with 14 year old girls. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


  • 5/5.
Coming Back

All of the coaches were positive all the time. The talks every night were helpful and were such a blessing.


  • 5/5.
Love NBC

NBC camps offer a safe, nurturing and highly experienced setting for kids to thrive in! The spring intensity night gets campers excited for the camp experience and the week of camp is incredible. Our kids improved their skills, gained more confidence and grew in their positive attitude and appreciation for the gifts in their life. Thank you NBC! I attended camp as a young athlete and it so great to have my own kids now experiencing such an incredible camp!

Growing as a player and as a person

I attended NBC camps as a student athlete and am excited to see my daughter now attend NBC camps. She had every bit as much fun as I did. Listening to her talk about her growth as a player and a person was very satisfying. See you next year!

Best camp in the region

NBC camps are a vast improvement over other camps in the area. They work on the whole player, not just basketball. My daughter came away more knowledgeable about basketball as well as knowing a positive attitude makes a difference.

So worth it!

NBC Camps teach you how to be an all around great basketball player and an outstanding person. They teach you about encouragement, life skills, and importance in yourself, your family, your friends, and much more. The coaches and staff are super! They will help you understand something better if you are having trouble with anything and they are a great influence on the players to be a better person and basketball player. You also play many fun games and do tons of fun activities. NBC camp is so worth it!


  • 5/5.
Absolutely loves NBC

I would highly recommend NBC Camp to anyone who is looking to really improve their game. The coaches are amazing and my son always leaves this camp so happy and feeling more confident in his basketball abilities. He tells me that NBC is the only bball camp he absolutely loves and looks forward to. And we've tried a few. Thanks NBC Camps!

Ethan Camper

Whole lot more

NBC camp was a week of high energy, fun activities, goal setting and personal development. I only thought it was a basketball camp, but I came away with a whole lot more. I'm now more goal oriented and focused on the things I want to achieve as basketball player and as a person.


  • 5/5.

I would recommend this camp to everyone!! This has helped my daughter with many of her basketball skills and her life skills. She came home with new ideas and a wonderful confidence about herself!

Caroline Parent

Summer highlight

My daughter has attended NBC Camps for the last 3 summers and it has helped her improve dramatically each year! She has been motivated to push herself outside her comfort zone and challenge herself beyond what she thought was possible in her intensity and focus! She has become a fearless competitor because of the excellent instruction in fundamentals, self-discipline, and goal-making, as well as the encouragement in her spiritual walk. She has also met many new friends that she continues to stay in contact with. NBC Camp has become the highlight of her summer and she can't wait to go back each year!

Kate N.Camper

  • 5/5.
Thank you

NBC Camp was probably one of the best camps I have ever been to. They taught life skills along with basketball and team work. The coaches and staff were all really nice and ready to help. I would encourage all to try for the Golden Ruler because it really challenges you. I did it and it was hard, but I am so glad I did it. Thank you!

Worth it!

“My daughter has attended 2 summers in a row and various skills camps. Although there are other choices for basketball camps in Spokane, all cheaper as well, I love the philosophy of NBC camps, the confidence that my daughter walks away with, not only as a basketball player; most importantly the reinforcement of Life skills to make positive choices as a young lady in today’s society; there us no price for that.
