NBC Camps provides comprehensive sports skill development in basketball, volleyball, soccer, and non-contact football. President and founder, Fred Crowell appears at various NBC Camps around the country and speaks to his vision for the total sports athlete: “We, at NBC Camps, not only endeavor to help campers be the best athlete they can be, we hope to encourage them to be the best student, family member, and person they can be. We believe attitude shapes the way people live. At NBC Camps, we are committed to addressing attitude both on and off the court. We believe hard work and self-discipline are necessary components for campers to become their best. Therefore, we provide a focused, intense curriculum designed to discourage comparison and instead promote self- correction and personal pride.” Crowell, a former NCAA Division 1 head coach, believes players reach their potential in an environment of hard work enthusiasm, gratitude, and encouragement.
Since NBC Camps inception in 1971, over 250,000 campers have attended these camps. NBC Camps is the largest overnight basketball camp program in the world, with locations in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Italy. On average each summer, approximately 10,000 student athletes experience the NBC Camps edge.
“Some of the finest athletes in the world have attended NBC Camps over the years,” says Jennifer Ferch, VP of NBC Camps. “People like Scott Brooks, head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder and 2010 NBA coach of the year, who attended NBC Camps as a young player, as did Luke Ridnour, point guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Paul Pierce, “The Truth”, perennial All-Star for the Boston Celtics. NBC Camps’ alumni are often highly successfully, not only in their sport, but more importantly in the game of life. Alumni include CEOs of major corporations, university professors, and presidents of leading businesses in a variety of fields. NBC Camps is the total sports package for the total sports athlete.”
