I have never been more impressed at any camp as I was when I attended the demonstrating at the end of the camp for parents. Other sports organizations should really consider adopting the leadership and direction this camp has; emphasizing the importance of off-court leadership, friendships, social pressures and dedication. I was impressed how the girls responded to the coaches, who commanded a great amount of respect and attention at all times. Well done NBC!
I love NBC! It's a great experience and like a home away from home. I love getting the opportunity to work hard and learn at the same time. This week I had a goal of never stopping. The coaches helped me by telling me to get lower or to get my hands up higher. Thanks coaches!

Coaches Were Great!
Smiley, educated and skilled coaches. They seemed sincerely concerned about our kids.
I like the fact that the themes are always tied into life skills not just sports. When the kids are busy at camp there is no time to get homesick, there was not much free time.

— Jillian Y.
Both my daughters are still talking about their experience at the Olds camp this summer and are looking forward to next summer's camps (we are having to work our trip to Hawaii around next years positions camp).
This was my sons first time at an NBC camp and he had a wonderful experience. The caliber of instruction and character building was second to none and he will definitely be back next year and plans to attend the VA in Edmonton throughout the year. I was so moved by the closing parent program and the genuine commitment to our children and their families was evident. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who make these life giving experiences for our children possible.
Never have I felt so informed regarding a sporting activity for my child,- and I have 6 children so this says alot.
— Cindy K.
Most phenomenal camp
The most phenomenal camp my daughters have ever attended. My oldest has attended 4 years in a row and we'll be back again next year!!!
I came to camp expecting to feel outdone by everyone. I don’t have as much experience as other girls and thought for sure I would constantly be feeling intimidated or inadequate. Instead I was met by many other people who came there with the same motive. To learn. It was a fantastic atmosphere filled with positive attitudes and wonderful people. Not once was I discouraged, even when I didn’t follow a drill there were always people there to help me. It was fun, while we learned. A perfect combination.
— Emma H.
No other camp compares
There is no other camp in Alberta that we have found that took our kids to this level of basketball and citizenship. Come prepared for a hard core basketball challenge.
— Rita A.
It’s rare and refreshing to experience the benefits of hard work, discipline and laughter all under one roof and in only 5 days! NBC is a fantastic experience!
As the parent of a first-time camper, I was most impressed with the organization and welcoming environment when we got there. On the final day, I was thrilled to see how excited my daughter was after the five days - from the new skills she developed in the game, but also the emotional growth she experienced.
Better player and person
As a camper of 4 years, I can say that NBC Camps has changed me into a better person. Not only have my basketball skills increased dramatically, but I believe I've become a much better person to everyone around me and have strengthened my relationship with God. I can't wait till NBC every summer because I meet so many new people. The coaches are definitely one of the greatest parts of camp because they're there for you for anything and you really become great friends with them.
— Katelyn L.
Scheduled for next summer
NBC camp was a fantastic experience for my son. He appreciated the positive, encouraging environment, and the intensity of the physical training and skills work. The focus of striving for excellence in all areas of life with instructors demonstrating this in their behavior and interactions with campers made the experience positive on all levels. We will be looking at the schedule for next summer! Thank you.
Changed my life
NBC camp changed my life, I found out a lot about myself as a person as well as a player. At camp you get to interact with people who are similar to you as well as different from you. The coaches are T-U-F-F tuff, and I would recommend this camp to all basketball players.
— Katie L.
Best weeks of my life
NBC camp was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Over the week I went, I learned more about basketball, but more importantly about myself, then i could ever imagine. All of the coaches were amazingly friendly, and it was so easy to talk to them about anything. I made a ton of new friends at camp, many whom I have kept in touch with, and a few who I think I will see on the court this year. Thank you NBC for one of the best weeks of my life!!!
