Every year NBC Camps selects athletes who demonstrate exceptional skill and outstanding character to represent NBC Camps playing your sport on NBC International Tour Teams. If you are selected this summer, you will travel next summer competing against top foreign teams while seeing different parts of the world. You must be 14 years or older by January 1, to participate in the next summer’s tour.
Athletes can be nominated by their NBC coaches or High School coaches for tour selection based on ability and attitude.
The athletes who make it through the first round of tryouts, will then need to submit 2 confidential references, a parent recommendation/support letter, along with $500 USD deposit to continue the process. After an athlete is chosen, she or he is placed on a team and sent a congratulations letter along with a manual which explains everything about the tour.

The tour includes one training camp which begins before you leave on tour. Included in the cost are all lodging, two meals per day, sightseeing, great uniforms, and a travel bag with journal and bible. You will have the opportunity to meet young people from around the country and to grow as a person in every area of your life. This is a great opportunity to study history first hand. Imagine walking London or Paris in a day, standing in the Sistine Chapel in Rome, riding in a water taxi in Venice or visiting the castles! How about riding bikes in Berlin and stopping by the remains of the wall or stopping at Check Point Charlie, walking on the Roman wall in Chester, England! Imagine being able to see up close some of the most famous tourist attractions in the world!!!!!
