ACTIVITY: In phase one, it’s time to challenge yourself! Living with your new team mates at one of our residential locations, you’ll get to know some amazing people, enjoy some quality time away from home and take on a range of adrenaline-fueled activities such as the total wipe out assault course, laser tag, high ropes, coasteering, surfing and rock climbing.


RESIDENTIAL LOCATION: In week 2, young people will stay at one of two residential locations. This will vary depending on the location you select for week 1.

Ultimate Adventure Centre > Marwell Activity Centre (tents)
Croyde > Marwell Activity Centre (Safari style tents)
Falmouth > Cedar Valley, near Petersfield (tents)
Escot/Dartmoor > Cedar Valley, near Petersfield (tents)

ACTIVITY: Now is your chance to discover something new! You’ll be reunited with your team mates at one of our tented villages. You’ll develop life skills like self confidence, leadership and communication to boost your CV or UCAS personal statement.

LOCATION: Regional Hubsite

ACTIVITY: It’s time to make your mark! This is where your NCS experience all comes together. All the fun and inspiration from the first two weeks means you’re ready to step up and deliver your very own social action project that will make a difference to your local area.

It’s time to celebrate in style. We think it’s only right that you and your team should enjoy a well-earned reward for doing something truly inspirational in your community.

This is where the biggest NCS graduation in the country comes in. Join us for a night of celebration at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) on Friday 24th November 2017, collect your graduation certificate signed by the Prime Minister and enjoy a night celebrating with friends and family.
