About The Venue

Our two weeks of NBC UK Basketball Camps in the UK this year are held at Malvern St James School in the Midlands. The town of Great Malvern is a beautiful 19th-century spa town on the side of the Malvern Hills, a perfect safe location to hold an NBC Camp.

About the campus

Located in the heart of rural England, Malvern St James School is a beautiful setting for camp. Campers will be staying in a nice residential dormitory. Each room accommodates between two and ten campers, with nearby bathroom facilities. You do not need to request a roommate before camp begins.

When you register for camp, have your preferred roommate(s) with you and we will endeavour to room you together. If you have no preference, we will match you with someone of the same gender and similar age. The cafeteria and food service provides nutritious meals, with an all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet.

Special Events

The Thursday of camp is D-Day. A day on which we will push you to your limit both physically and mentally. If you are up for a challenge, this is the place to be…

We run a special Carnival on one night of our camp, when campers compete against staff and each other in fun games. Popular games in the past have been 1 v 1 and 2 v 2 against our coaches! A wonderful way to relax after an intense day at camp.

On our last night of camp, we have a late night pizza feast to round off the camp experience.

Parents are welcome to attend any aspect of camp. We would particularly like to encourage parents join us for the All Star games, League finals and closing Award Ceremony on the final day at camp. As we understand that many parents will be travelling to Malvern from various parts of the country we would like to offer the option to join us for a buffet on the last day. Please enquire about the cost of a lunch voucher. They will need to be pre-booked and will be issued at registration.
