Testimonials

“Our little boy has had the most amazing experience and just loved every minute of his week at BHIVE! As parents we cannot believe some of the things he was doing and with such confidence. The BHIVE team as well as the activities carried out were just second to none! Ben has not stopped talking about it and is desperate to go back again. Thank you all"

“They thoroughly enjoyed being part of the BHive and want to take part again next year, they enjoyed the various activities through out the day”

“We just want to pass on big thanks to all the staff for making the week so enjoyable for all the kids. I don't know how they managed to do it, but my son came home exhausted each day (literally sleeping in the car on occasions), he really looked forward to the adventures he would be having the next day - and he told all his friends and family about it. He is asking to go back and we will definitely be booking this again. Thank-you for making the program as varied and exciting as it was, and for helping to make his summer holidays so special with all these fun activities. We are very grateful”

“He loved the variety of activities, especially the water zorbing and den building. He also enjoyed the games and down time activities just as much as the fast paced exciting ones though - I think it sounded like the staff created an amazing program which was perfectly balanced and really enjoyable for the children”

“My son absolutely loved his week at the BHive Summer Camp. He was exhausted each night, and buzzing each morning (excuse the bad pun!). He has been telling all his friends and he has been asking to go back as he had so much fun! He loved going and we will definitely be booking in again”

”This camp was such a wonderful learning experience for our son and he has made memories that will forever stay with him. Every part of the week from the friendliness of the staff to the amazing experiences provided was just unforgettable”
