WEEK 1 ADVENTURE

It's week one and it's time to challenge yourself!

Living with your team at an outdoor activity centre, you'll get to know some amazing people and enjoy some quality time away from home.
The best part? You'll find yourself in a group of 12-15 incredible people you've never met before – people who will change your life and whose lives you'll change.
In your team, you'll get the chance to take on some adrenaline-fuelled challenges like rock climbing, canoeing, hiking and archery.
You won't believe the difference a week makes. Even if you're the biggest scaredy-cat, in just a few days you'll be a rock climbing', zip wiring', canoe-conquering' machine!

WEEK 2 SKILLS

Now's your chance to discover something new!

You'll be reunited with your group, living away from home in uni-style accommodation. Not only will you learn to cook for yourself (like how to make the perfect beans on toast!) you'll also learn some huge life skills that make for a killer CV.

You could find yourself meeting organisations and important people from your local community, whilst developing valuable skills such as teamwork, leadership and communication.

Even better – you might discover something new about yourself. Maybe you've got a hidden (or not so hidden) passion for photography, editing, football coaching or even how to set up your own business!
