NEW HIVE HOLIDAY CAMP OPENS IN SEVENOAKS!

This summer, The Hive is opening a fourth camp. Thank you The New Beacon for welcoming us to Sevenoaks. We're very excited to bring our exciting missions!

A thriving independent school situated in a semi-rural location just outside Sevenoaks, The New Beacon is set in 21 acres of gardens, playing fields and woodlands, complete with a beautiful wildlife pond and grazing sheep! It's a lovely setting, both intimate and full of opportunities to explore and roam. The Hive has exclusive use of the woods and surrounding fields, together with dedicated classrooms and school hall. 

Based in Sevenoaks, The New Beacon is easily accessible from Otford, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Eynsford and Downe. 

FEBRUARY HALF TERM: A HOLIDAY CAMP WITH LEONARDO DA VINCI!

FEBRUARY HALF TERM: A HOLIDAY CAMP WITH LEONARDO DA VINCI!

Join us in Greenwich this February half-term for a thrilling holiday workshop, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's exciting machines!
 

“ONCE YOU HAVE TASTED FLIGHT YOU WILL WALK THE EARTH WITH YOUR EYES TURNED SKYWARDS, FOR THERE YOU HAVE BEEN AND THERE YOU WILL LONG TO RETURN” - LEONARDO DA VINCI


The Hive’s first flying mission! Inspired by Leonardo’s amazing machines, this week-long project is all about INVENTION. Your challenge: dream up, design and build a machine that can fly long enough for you to win Gold at our inaugural Air Show!

First you will need to investigate the forces of flight: how does a flying machine lift? How does it push against gravity? What is the force that makes it move forward? Then come the design and aeronautics: will it glide, will it use a propeller like a helicopter, wings like a plane, buoyancy like a hot air balloon or ballistic flight like a rocket?

Working with your fellow engineers, you will get the chance to create, build and test lots of different machines such as parachutes, air balloons, planes, catapults, ballistae, rockets and helicopters. One machine per team will then be chosen to compete in the final challenge!

If all goes well, you will be taking to the skies on the last day of the mission to take part in our very own Air Show, albeit on a smaller scale! Which team's flying machine will win Gold?
 

A THRILLING BLEND OF DESIGN, AERONAUTICS AND CREATIVITY WITH LOTS OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR QUICK RESPONSE PROTOTYPING.

New Hive Location in Surrey!

The Hive is opening a brand new camp in Surrey this summer at St George's Weybridge.
Located within 100 acres of stunning grounds and woodlands with extensive parkland to explore, fields designed for adventure, a woodland trail and a gentle river, St George's is a truly idyllic location for our outdoor missions!

We'll be running for 2 weeks between 8th August and 19th August.
