NCS Summer schedule unveiled

Want to know where NCS will take you in Summer 2017? Your destiny is revealed here!

The itinerary for the perfect way to spend the hottest months of the year if you're 15, 16 or 17-years-old has been unveiled, with hundreds of local teenagers looking forward to this life-changing experience.

The mixture of residential and locally-based activities allow the participants to gain valuable skills that will serve them well for years to come.

Team building from the outward bound week challenges fears and presents exciting chances to enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled experience, before taking the chance to learn self-dependency skills like budgeting and cooking during the second week on the road.

The new and improved you will return to Blackburn to spend two weeks working in small teams, planning and undertaking social action projects to raise money for worthy local causes - putting something back into the area in which you live.

Our confirmed schedule is as follows...

Week One: Away Residential

  • Monday 24th July to Friday 28th July (meet at Ewood Park, 9.30am on Monday 24th)
