Tiny buildings, scaled down roads, incy bridges and teeny people inhabited this strange and peculiar world. Rita & Noah, being the inquisitive pair that they were, investigated further and began talking with the rather worried and upset townspeople. This was how they discovered that this magical town, named Greenville, was in BIG trouble...Greenville, as it ironically turned out, isn’t that green at all! The river is so gross that even Woodie the local beaver won’t swim in it, the air stinks of rotten eggs, the park is buried under mountains of revolting brown goo and Magog, the old oak has been chopped down to make space for - wait for it - a giant car park!!! The town is ruined! It’s nothing short of a disaster…
Rita and Noah feel sorry for the people of Greenville, but they don’t really know what to do. They’re not exactly experts in miniature towns! All of a sudden, a round little man with a large moustache runs over towards them. It’s Major Dewy, the town’s Leader. He’s so out of breath and excited that he’s spluttering… “looking…people…no time…help… lucky”. It turns out that he’s been looking for help for ages and now two identical humans have just turned up! How lucky is that? “Can you help? Do you know what to do to save the town? Have you got any nature Greenville could borrow? And what’s with the rotten eggs? I have no idea where that’s come from…”
Rita & Noah feel rather out of their depth, but they can’t let the townspeople down. Suddenly Rita has an idea. She remembers that a couple of summers ago, she had taken part in a Hive mission…. Oh yes, now she’s thinking about it, they could definitely help out.
The Hive is calling on the young architects of tomorrow to take on this exciting mission and design a brand-new GREEN Greenville! You will be making, building, trading and designing with the utmost professionalism. We need a team! Only the best may apply.

RECOMMENDED AGE RANGE

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 between 1:8 and 1:10 in our camps. All facilitators are DBS and reference checked; all undergo The Hive in-house safeguarding training. Sites include fully qualified First Aiders.
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.
The mission runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Extended care is also available from 8.30am to 6pm - an additional charge applies.
END OF MISSION SHOWCASE
All Hive missions finish with an exhibition, showcase or performance for parents. The format depends on each particular mission. We usually ask parents to arrive between 15 and 30 minutes early to get the most out of the showcases.
