Kayaking back to Scotland from an important conference in Norway, outdoor daredevil Angus was capsized as he hit treacherous waters. Waking up on a rocky and deserted Island he saw nothing but sea, dolphins and a rusty and forgotten lighthouse. Climbing to the top of the lighthouse, Angus discovered a time worn Morse code transmitter. Luckily, Angus was well versed in Morse and sent out an S.O.S message, with little to no hope of getting a reply…
Meanwhile at Hive HQ, reports are circulating of a mysterious machine beeping away somewhere in the grounds of Merchant Taylors'...
Hive HQ is seeking a team of top marine biologists, with a knack for cracking codes, to lead an urgent rescue mission to bring Angus home! We’re bound to face some challenges along the way...we don’t even know WHERE Angus is! Can you help us decode messages to track his location? Angus knows NOTHING about the island he is stranded on. Do you have the skills to investigate the resources on the island, and teach him how to survive. Angus is completely ALONE! You will need to use your head and hands to learn all about the sea-dwelling creatures Angus is living with and hatch a rescue plan that will bring him back to safety. We need to act fast, the clock is ticking...

Stories & Adventures
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.
