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. Criteria includes journaling, designing workouts, memorization, testing, essays and more. *Not all locations offer the Golden Ruler

Having the opportunity to learn new skills to improve his shooting, his dribbling , and most importantly his sense of self as a player and a teammate . I saw my son watching his peers play , and from the sidelines , cheering on the players and walking up and down the sidelines encouraging the players to do well. I’ve not seen this side of him in basketball, and a as a parent it makes me extremely proud thankful for sending my son to a camp that develops the player on so many important levels . I am very thankful for all of the NBC staff who coached and guided my son . So thankful for NBC camps.
