‘OH DEAR, OH DEAR! THIS IS ABSOLUTE CHAOS! NO, THIS WILL NOT DO AT ALL! AND I’M STILL LATE! – THE WHITE RABBIT

All is not well in StoryWorld… not well at all! The dastardly Story Thief is at large and causing havoc! He has been taking well-loved story characters and putting them in the wrong StoryWorld. Poor old Puss in Boots is lost in The Jungle Book, Cinderella’s shoe has been stolen by Robin Hood, the Queen of Hearts has put Goldilocks in jail at the back of the croquet ground, and the Gingerbread Man has been eaten by Hansel and Gretel!

Sherlock Holmes has been in touch with The Hive. Yes, even the Great Sherlock is stuck. He can't figure out how to catch the thief, or even where he's hiding. There are just too many worlds... We can't let him down. We've got to help! We will need to use our best hunting and surviving skills though. How will we navigate the woods? How are we going to make it alive in the jungle? And what about the deadly rose garden? We will also need to fix the messes that he’s made along the way: tracking Robin Hood, presenting a case in Goldilock’s trial, making the Gingerbread Man again from scratch, and who even knows what else!? 

The situation is bad, and it’s only getting worse!  We need to act fast! Using our best operatives we must sort this mess out and give these stories the happily-ever-afters they deserve!


MISSION FACT FILE

 

TYPE OF MISSION
Stories & Adventures

RECOMMENDED AGE RANGE
5 1/2 - 9 (Years 1 - 4). Please note that this is only a recommendation. In our experience, stories and adventures really engage children up to around 9. Every child is different however and you know your child best! If you are unsure and would like to talk through with us, please free to call or email the team. We'll be very happy to advise.

FACILITATION
Our Lead Facilitators tend to be practising Primary School Teachers, supported by Outdoor Practitioners and Drama Professionals. Parents always receive a full list of facilitators a week of so before the start of camp. We operate an overall ratio of 1:8 in our camps. All facilitators are DBS and reference checked; all undergo The Hive in-house safeguarding training. Sites include several fully qualified First Aiders.

MISSION DURATION
Five day mission with the flexibility to book as little as 1 day or as much as 5 days. If you are only booking 1 or 2 days, we suggest choosing the beginning of the week to help the children truly experience the developing story. 

DAILY TIMES
The mission runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Extended care is also available from 8.30am to 6pm - an additional charge applies.

PRICES
Prices for this mission start at £50 per day per child. The daily price decreases as more days are booked. We also offer sibling, multi-week and group discounts. Please click here for further information. Discounts are applied at checkout.
