Training camp takes place at the start of tour and is most often hosted at Black Diamond Camps in Auburn, WA. Training camp is an opportunity for the team to practice and prepare for their time playing together overseas. The team will be challenged through high ropes elements, group development activities, and around four practices throughout camp. Think summer camp meets NBC - campfires, high ropes course, team games, and basketball. NBC staff and travel team coaches will provide travel safety training and leadership training as well. Training camp starts on the first day of the listed tour dates and is an intensive 2-3 day experience before the team departs for the trip!

Unforgettable Highlights and growth
Some of my tour highlights were seeing the Crown Jewels and then close games in Liverpool and London. It was fun and hopefully has evolved me as a person. The coaches insights were good and this is something I will never forget.
— Jack P.
Amazing growth on and off the courtI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for all your hard work in making this UK tour possible. Our team was a great representation of our country and NBC Camps. It was a blessing to see the growth (on and off the court) of each player throughout the 10 day trip. I'm extremely lucky to have been a part of this great experience... I'm walking away with so many memories and friendships.
