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, You will also get to live 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 Phase 2, young people will stay at one of two residential locations. This will vary depending on the location you visit in Phase 1.

Bideford > Marwell Activity Centre (tents)
Croyde > Marwell Activity Centre (Safari style tents)
Newquay > Southampton Solent University (Halls)

ACTIVITY: Now is your chance to discover something new! You’ll be reunited with your team mates at one of our tented villages. Each day you and your team will participate in different workshops such as Sports Coaching & Leadership, Performing Arts or Media & Film. 

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 phases 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 celebration in the country comes in. Join us for a night at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) on Friday 2nd November 2018, collect your graduation certificate signed by the Prime Minister and enjoy a night celebrating with friends and family.
