    HI,

    I have heard of NCS but not the all girls one. Me and my friends have applied for NCS this summer and we're pretty excited to go there. It sounds fun and would probably be a great experience

    I am going and it depends on whether boys choose to go so if no boys want to go then of course it will be all girls but normally they are mixed but depends on numbers

    Basically, because young offendors are sent on NCS as part of their rehatilibation programme you get some 'characters'.

    We got send down to Scotland where we dormed about 20 to a cabin (with no barriers separating beds) and two portaloos between us. Four of the 20 people in my dorm took ecsatcy in the night and one threatened to shave the eyebrows off anyone who went to sleep; so I didn't get the best night sleep We also didnt do any of the cool activities they advertised, we did a day of puzzles and a hike.

    The second week I asked to do sport but got stuck doing media; but all in all it wasnt that bad and I had some good fun.

    The final week was absolute chaos. On the final day you're meant to be a charity day where you go out into the local town and spread awareness about a charity you make. NCS didnt tell the council so were evicted out of the town by the police and had to wait in a park for the rest of the day. So basically a whole week of planning our event day amounted to nothing; defeating the whole purpose

    However, don't let me put you off. I think I just went with a particulary bad group. I did have some good fun amongst the mayhem as well
