Cheap (or free) summer activities for 16 to 17 year olds

Summer is (allegedly) with us, and the summer holidays are around the corner.

For many, this presents a challenge for keeping kids occupied with a huge investment of cash or time.

If you’ve got a 16 or 17-year-old, the National Citizen Service (NCS) offer a range of activities including life skills in the great outdoors for £50, or free for some.

Our friends over at have written a full guide on this with all the information needed. Have a look > here <


This is super helpful, will share this info with Care sector staff and signpost them to this page and thread…


Thanks @Leila - appreciate it and glad to help!
