    I am 16 and I've been accepted into NCS this July however I'm starting to regret it and considering cancelling it.
    Could anyone who's been on it already share their experience on how they found the overall experience and what to expect?
    This summer I am already travelling to Ghana with a volunteer agency to work in an orphanage and help to build a outside classroom at a local school for 3 weeks in July and if I do NCS I won't have any spare time this summer to relax at home as NCS starts pretty much as soon as I return back.
    I just wanted to know how tiring the whole experience is and wether it would be worth waiting until next summer to take part in instead or to go ahead and do it this summer when I return from volunteering in Ghana?
