We select outstanding people we believe are of high integrity and character, work ethic and willingness to pour their lives into helping athletes be their best. We work hard to hire college players and coaches, along with high school coaches who are dynamic and competent teachers of the game.

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 45 years of experience, our goal is to give you the best basketball and life skills instruction possible.

TEACH BASKETBALL AND LIFE SKILLS AT A “WORLD CLASS” LEVEL

Facilities

ABOUT THE CAMPUS

Whitworth University's campus of brick buildings and pine trees 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 during warmer weeks. The cafeteria facility provides an all-you-can-eat salad bar with fresh fruit, hot entrees with beverage, sandwich and cereal stations. Whitworth provides 24-hour security around campus.  The campus is located just seven miles north of downtown Spokane, Washington.  Roommates for this site need to be requested at leaset one week before camp begins. If you have no preference, conference services 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 only provide travel assistance for our All-Star Camp week 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:
Spokane Airport Shuttle 509-276-9177
Busy Bee Plains Taxi 509-244-2211

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 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 may 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.

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!

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!

Changed My Life

This camp was such a blessing to me. I have learned a lot from the coaches and other leaders of the camp, especially how to win the moment to making decisions the right way.  NBC camp changed my life and has taught me to think deeper.  It has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and live more courageously.  I know this camp helped me once again, in all areas of my life.
