So, you ready? Pre-register now to be the first to hear when Summer ‘22 spaces go live!

And in the meantime, check out our video to see what you’ll be getting up to, and have a read below to see what’ll be waiting for you in Summer ‘22…


It might feel like a way away...but trust us, summer is going to be here sooner than you think, and that’s something to get excited about! Think long sunny days (probably some wet ones too, who are we kidding), hanging with new mates,
having a week of adventures away from home that you’ll talk about for years, a week of doing some good in your community, and becoming the best version of yourself. And that’s all just on our Summer ‘22 experience.

You know that buzz you feel when you nail something you thought was near to impossible? When you feel epic? Imagine that, but for every day you’re with us. Throw that in with meeting a new crowd (who might end up as mates for life!), taking on challenges together (depending on where you are in the country you might do things like braving new heights on a climbing wall, turn your Sherlock on in a city wide scavenger hunt, or hit the water - and stay afloat! - in a river kayak adventure) and still having some time to recharge and chill. Pretty great, right?

“I loved my team and we really worked together well. The instructors made it such an enjoyable experience and it was such a great time. I just loved it and I built relationships with people I wouldn’t think I ever would” - Sonia, Manchester

It gets better. You’ll also pick up a bunch of skills designed to help you smash the whole ‘adulting’ thing and live life to the fullest. Want to know how to budget for a food shop? Answer questions with confidence? Present to a room full of people, without freezing up? Leave it to us.

“It gave me freedom and a taste of handling responsibilities and above all it helped me to grow in confidence massively. My group was lovely and so were the instructors. Thank you so much to the team for making it possible.” - Rumaysa, Bolton

But wait, there’s more! You’ll take all that you’ve learned and work together to turn your passions into action. Want to see a positive change in your community and get your voice heard on an issue you care about? Pave the way. You’ll have the tools and team to make a lasting impact. 

"NCS allows young people like me to make their own change, which is what I loved most about the programme...Thank you for making our voice heard and for allowing us to make a difference." - Mirian, Manchester

Why not get some inspo from our previous Superstars. Check out how one team tackled period poverty in Brighton, how another collected hundreds of school uniforms for families in need, how this team said no to knife crime, and how this team kept their community supported during COVID-19.

You’re going to achieve so much more than you could ever imagine. And we won’t leave you empty handed. On top of all the pals, lols, and skills, you’ll get a certificate to remind you of all the wins, and then go party with your team! You’ve got to go out with a bang, right?

“It's a good opportunity to get out of the house, spend time with friends and to make new ones. The environment is great and you don't have to worry about being yourself.” - Reece, Preston
