One amazing morning, Dr Griffin arrives at work to discover a package on her doorstep. A gift - how exciting! She opens the parcel and eagerly pulls out… a giant egg… a dragon egg! Unfortunately, Dr Griffin’s specialism is hamsters, not dragons. What is she to do? She needs help, and she needs it quickly, because the egg could hatch at any moment!
Luckily, she’s friend with Agent Turner from The Hive. She remembers that a little while ago, he mentioned that The Hive had a Mythical Creatures department. Who knows? They may be able to help…
Agent Turner gets SOOO excited when she calls him. A dragon egg? His friend Igor who is Head Vet at The Hive is going to love this! He adores dragons. But he’s going to need a team of trainees to help him... Dragons are hard work. They have to have the right kind of nest and they’re known to be fussy eaters; they also need lots of training to snort fire properly, and drink so much water. And that’s even before you start teaching them to fly!
Do you have the brains and bravery to come and help protect the young dragon? Don’t delay - the race is on to ensure Dr Griffin can safely release him into the wild!

RECOMMENDED AGE RANGE
5 1/2 - 8 (Years 1 - 4). Please note that this is only a recommendation. In our experience, stories and adventures really engage children up to around 8. 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.
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.
