The NCS Summer Experience details and dates

Phase 1: Adventure

All participants will be taken to an outdoor residential activity centre in an idyllic location out of the county, where they will take part in activities such as abseiling, caving, rock climbing, surfing and canoeing. A coach will pick all participants up from a centralised Oxfordshire location and take them to the centre. All equipment for activities will be provided, as well as food and accommodation. 

Phase 2: Discovery

After going back home and relaxing for the weekend, all participants will return for a local festival themed residential and camp at our stunning Hill End Centre Eynsham Road, Oxford, OX2 9NJ. It is here all participants engage in workshops that have been designed to make you stand out to potential employers, universities and prepare you for Phase 3. There is also plenty of time to chill out next to our camp fire, watch movies in the large on site stretch tent and hang out with friends

Phase 3: Social action

Participants within their teams will identify a cause or charity they are passionate about, and invent a campaign or fundraising project to aid them. This is a chance to show their initiative, teamwork and leadership skills and come up with an original and ambitious project.

Phase 4: Celebration

Participants receive a nationally recognised certificate signed by the prime minster and have the chance to celebrate all achievements with friends, family and dignitaries at a prestigious event held at Brookes University on Saturday 8 September 2018.
