The Hive Parent Testimonials

Thinking about being an animal provided an opportunity to think like someone else, which is an important experience in building empathy. It also drove a lot of fun conversations in our household!

– Parent of hiver

My daughters are LOVING camp! The instructors have been so great. I’m impressed with how well they have been able to not just accommodate but really embrace each child’s learning and engagement style.

– Parent of hiver

My son was seen so holistically. I felt like the camp really got who is he and nurtured him and his creativity in the most empowering way.
