Details of our Cool Summer holiday club 2024 are below and we’re taking bookings now.

We have full and half day places available. If your young person receives free school meals, we have subsidised places on offer. To book onto Cool Summer holiday club, your young person must be a member of The Hive. Join now.

  • On holiday club Wednesdays, you will only be able to book for the morning half day session; the afternoons will be our open Summer Supersessions for juniors running 1pm-6pm, and all holiday clubbers can stay for those for 50p (you can book that online too)! 
  • On Tuesday 30th July, holiday club will be a full day trip to Bewilderwood. Places for this are limited, and we ask that they’re used by young people who will be coming to holiday club for at least three other sessions across the summer.

Holiday club prices: 

The Hive Youth Zone is a charity. We need to fundraise more than £1.3m per year to run The Hive’s building and deliver the top-quality youth work that our members come here for.  

It costs The Hive £28 per child, per day to run our holiday club. If you’re paying for a place and can afford to meet that full cost, you’re helping to make sure our limited resources can stretch as far as possible for every young person coming through our doors – thank you! Our economy rate is open to everyone who needs it. The offer to young holiday clubbers is exactly the same, whatever rate you choose.
