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 fantastic opportunity for campers to explore how fun challenging work can be.
Camp Store- At some locations, there is a camp store that sells anything from snacks and sports drinks to NBC gear such as 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 include 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. Campers will learn about NBC tours at camp and can apply for one of our teams by contacting Travel Team Director Breanna Lyons at email@example.com or visiting http://www.nbccamps.com/international

Great Attitudes and Encouraging
I learned a lot more about playing on the net, as well as good footwork for passing and setting. Camp was so fun and I saw how close a team can get at a college level. Coaches and players had great attitudes and were very encouraging.
— Adalei, Camper
Inclusive and Encouraging
My camper loved how inclusive people were. She also felt comfortable to take risks without being afraid to mess up a hit or a pass - because coaches did not yell if a player messed up; they encouraged and gave the necessary corrections. Also, it was a very fun camp, packed with activities and she loved being away from home with some independence.
Camp taught me how to be an all-around person and volleyball player.

Camp was Amazing!
I think that at the NBC Camp, one of my favorite parts was the evening programs. I enjoyed discussing True North, True Grit, True Word, and True Faith. I also enjoyed the coaches putting on the skits. They were hilarious!!! I thought that this camp was amazing to learn about some workouts to exercise each of my volleyball skills. I also enjoyed how the coaches took what Jared (the intensive workout coach) taught and applied it to our volleyball skills and how to intensify our playing.
— Megan L.
Made it a life changing, growing experience that hardly any camps offer. I will be forever grateful for the things I learned through this camp!

Best of the best
NBC Camps are the best of the best. You will not find another camp that will train and inspire your athlete as well as the staff at NBC. My daughter has attended 6 camps and she always walks away feeling grateful, rededicated, and focused.
I loved NBC Camp. The staff is amazing and my skills improved so much! The varsity coach at my high school said he noticed a huge improvement. I will be back again next year for the complete camp and power camp. I attended both this year and LOVED them both.
— Paige R.
Well worth it
NBC Camps are well worth the investment. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the experience and is a better player for her effort.
This camp is a great learning experience and will definitely help you become a better player. They have a great coaching staff and they help make everything fun.
Learned so much
This volleyball camp taught me so much! I definitely think I improved by coming to this camp. You have to come with an open mind to learn and you can't be so hard on yourself if you don't get it right away!
— Cirri C.
Great skills training
This was my first NBC Camp experience and I think every athlete should attend one of these camps. The coaches work you hard, but you develop skills that you didn't come to camp with or perfect the ones you already had. It was AWESOME!
Driven to be great
I really appreciate NBC Camps. I have been involved for three years now. This camp pushes you so hard to do your best. You won't regret this camp. If you want to push yourself extremely hard you will get so much out of this camp. I personally learned that I can push myself harder than I think. Also, encouragement is key if you want to do well.
Inspiring and Motivating
This camp inspired and motivated my daughter in such positive ways! She would call me each night gushing about how awesome the training and staff was as well as the new friends and inspirational activities she was involved in. I would definitely recommend this camp to any student athlete!
Well-organized and professional
Camp was very organized, had a glitch at registration but it was handled professionally and quickly, the staff and coaches were wonderful.
Made the team
I attended your volleyball camp in Spokane. It was my first time learning how to play volleyball. I LEARNED SO MUCH FROM YOU GUYS!!! EACH ONE OF YOU ARE GREAT! This past week has been nerve wrecking. I actually tried out for my school volleyball team. There were 40 girls trying out for the team, and only 12 of them would make it. I did my best. And guess what? My hard work paid off. Out of the 28 girls that were cut, I was one of the 12 on the team. It's all thanks to you guys! You had an amazing staff that was caring for me. And each one of the girls there were kind enough to help me.Thank You!
— Madison H.
Learned a lot
Thank you NBC Volleyball for a wonderful experience, I had so much fun and learned a lot about myself and volleyball. I can't wait until I get to come back next year!
— Sarah M.
Had a blast
I'm 11 and this was my first overnight sport camp. Because the staff was so welcoming and coaches paid so much attention to us I felt safe the whole time and had a blast. I learned so much from the coaches. I can't wait for next year!
— Miranda H.
I love NBC Camps
My camp experience at NBC Camps was so much fun! The Intensity Night was my favorite. I don't think I've ever sweated so hard before. All the coaches kept everyone at camp pumped up. I definitely learned a lot over the 4 nights I was there, and if I could've, I would've stayed longer!!! Not only did we play volleyball all day long, but we also had evening programs where we learned how to be a better player from the inside out, have a more positive perspective and attitude towards our teammates and the people around us, and how to be a powerful, more electric player. I love NBC Camps, and I’m definitely coming back next year-no doubt!
Staff is always encouraging
I love the NBC camps. They help me on my skills for playing and on my character. The staff is always encouraging and happy. I can honestly say that NBC camps has helped me with my skills for sports and for life.
Becoming the best
NBC Camps do a great job instilling Christian values while working on becoming the best athlete you can be. It is about the whole person and not just the athlete.
Grateful for Sports Camp
Wonderful supportive environment. The genuine care and respect for the girls was felt from the time we stepped onto the campus. Great food, form arrangements, instructors. We are so grateful for a sports camp that really focuses on the development of character.
— April S
