Bullying Policy- Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among students that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Three types of bullying include verbal, social, and physical. At NBC Camps, we will not tolerate bullying and any reported incident will be investigated and taken seriously. Bullying behavior could result in immediate dismissal from camp.
Intensity Night- Intensity Night is a unique NBC Camps event involving sweat, music, encouragement, and craziness. Intensity Night gives campers the opportunity to work harder than they’ve ever worked before, and they’ll be cheered and encouraged every step, jump, and push-up along the way. Campers set their level of intensity and everyone is encouraged to reach his/her personal goals. No one is forced to go beyond their abilities. It’s a great opportunity for campers to explore how fun hard work can be. At some locations, families are welcome to attend to observe and encourage campers, you will be notified by your camp director prior to camp if this is available.
Camp Store- At some locations, there is a camp store that sells anything from snacks and sports drinks to NBC gear such t-shirts and sweatshirts. When there is a camp store, there is also a camp bank located near the check-in tables on the first day. Parents can give money to the camp bank on behalf of their camper so they can purchase merchandise or snacks from the camp store. We recommend sending between $40-$60 for snacks, drinks, apparel, and other products. On the last day of camp parents should retrieve any unspent money. Not all locations have a camp store.
Golden Ruler Award- The Golden Ruler Award is the highest achievement at NBC Camps. It is designed to teach campers to become a person of depth and reflection, while instilling the importance of community service, discipline, and accountability. The criteria for the award are very strict, thus only campers ages 13-18 may try for the award. Those who would like to attempt this should bring a notebook and a Bible. Criteria includes journaling, designing workouts, memorization, testing, essays and more. *Not all locations offer the Golden Ruler
International Travel Teams- NBC invites athletes ages 14-18 on international tours through the NBC Travel Teams program.

Life Changing Experience!
This was my first year attending NBC camp. I absolutely loved that I was able to learn more about how to be a better basketball player. The coaches were encouraging and taught me a lot about the game of basketball. I thought it was such a good opportunity for me to be around the coaches who have been playing basketball for almost their whole lives and to have them teach me was such a great honor. It was a really great experience to meet people from different places and have them encourage me to push my self as hard as I possibly could. Everything we did, we did it as a team, almost like family. It's nice to play basketball with other people who loves the game just as much as I do. I could feel that I improved my game so much after attending this camp. It was also really great to get to learn more about God and grow closer to him. I couldn't have done it without my teammates, the coaches, and everyone who helped put this amazing camp together. This was such a life changing experience and I really hope I could come back next year.
