Adventure- Meet new friends & create unforgettable memories


Experience the freedom of life away from home in your first week of NCS. Learn to defy your limits as you live fearlessly to uncover a new you and work in a team that’s part of something bigger than anything you’ve ever done before! It won’t take you long to realise that life truly begins outside your comfort zone.

In your first week you’ll live with your team at an outdoor activity centre, getting to know each other and experiencing the freedom of being away from home with new friends.

we place you in a group of 12-15 amazing people and the best thing about NCS is that some of these will be people you’d never have met before – people that could change your life, or you could change theirs. In this week you’ll get the chance to take part in adrenaline-fuelled activities with your team mates like: rock climbing, canoeing, cycling and archery.


The Social Action Project – A huge part of your NCS experience is developing and growing your skills, but the coolest part is that you’ll have the opportunity to put them into practice when you take on projects in your community. 


At the end of it all, it’s time to party at the NCS graduation ceremony – this is our chance to recognise and celebrate your achievements. You’ll even get a certificate  and learn more about how NCS can take you overseas with the International Citizen Service.
