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.


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

TEC Method
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.

Whitworth University's 200-acre campus of red brick buildings and tall pines offers a beautiful, inviting and secure environment. Campers will be staying in the university dorms. Each room has 2 beds available with nearby private shower facilities. These rooms are not air-conditioned and we suggest you bring a fan. The quality cafeteria facility provides an all-you-can-eat salad bar with fresh fruit, hot entrees with beverage, sandwich and cereal stations. Campers alternate being bussed to nearby local gyms to provide maximum competition. Whitworth is located seven miles north of downtown Spokane, Washington. Roommates for this site need to be requested before camp begins. If you have no preference we will match you with a camper of the same gender and similar age. Contact nbc@nbccamps.com if you need to add a roommate request.

Travel Assistance

We do provide travel assistance for our All-Star Boys week, the NBC 14 day experience and the Boys College Prep Camp. Please contact John Fazio at jfazio@nbccamps.com for information.

If you are flying to camp and need transportation from the airport, here are a couple of shuttle options for you to consider:

Busy Bee Plains Taxi 509-244-2211
Spokane Airport Shuttle 509-276-9177

All-Star and 14 Day Ultimate 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 jfazio@nbccamps.com  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 an 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.
3. If there are less than 4 campers that are in need of transportation assistance to a given start/end date, we reserve the right to coordinate other shuttle arrangements with the families.
Please coordinate all flight information with the Camp Director John Fazio at jfazio@nbccamps.com. Subject: All-Star Camp Airport Shuttle.

Best time

My son, Brandon B., had the best time at his 2 NBC camps (this past week).  He loves basketball so much and all the helpful instruction and an opportunity to improve on his techniques got him even more excited about the sport!  Just wanted to send a quick note to say "thank you" so very much!And yes, he is already practicing everything he learned and following his work out book he comprised!!!!!

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.

Friendly And Knowledgeable!

Friendly and knowledgeable coaching staff who were positive an encouraging to kids. Provided individual instruction to kids when needed and seemed to help each kid improve regardless of ability levels. I was impressed to hear many coaches calling students by their names. Excellent teachers of the game! High intensity drills and activities to keep the kids motivated and engaged. Loved the showcase at the end of camp!

Did A Great Job!

The camp coaches did a great job of being very positive and encouraging on the court. They taught aspects of the game that other coaches have not taken the time to teach my daughter! They helped her enjoy being on the court again and helped her build confidence! She wants to return again and she was not sure about playing at all before attending the this camp!

Earl C.Parent All Star

Well Organized!

Everything was well organized. The coaches were terrific. The camp store concept was helpful. The teaching method was effective, building stronger individuals rather than just basketball players.

Loved Everything!

I loved everything about it! All staff was friendly but I feel that my daughters coach went above and beyond! Made my daughter feel so comfortable, talked about post high school career and motivated my daughter to work harder. I also loved the leadership seminars. I feel both my kids took things away from that they put into use immediately and will last a lifetime. Thanks to all for organizing this camp!

One of the best weeks of summer!

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 hopes 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 old 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.

Awesome coaches

This is a great place to learn how to be a better person and a better basketball player. The coaches are always positive and lifting you up and they really care about you.


  • 5/5.

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!


  • 5/5.
Great 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.
Fantastic experience

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 gave me the mindset to be the best I can be.


  • 5/5.
Outstanding coaches

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

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!

Ali Camper

  • 5/5.
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

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!

Better players and people

NBC Camp is more than a basketball camp! I have brought three kids the past two years and I have seen growth from them as people as well as basketball players.


  • 5/5.
Won't be disappointed
