Google Expedition Pioneer Programme!

Imagine exploring coral reefs or the surface of Mars in an afternoon!

This Easter we are pleased to announce a number of our camps will be getting a visit from the Google Expeditions Pioneer Programme!

With Google Expeditions you can take field trips right from a classroom. Google Expeditions allows an instructor acting as a guide to lead classroom-sized groups of “explorers” through collections of 360° and 3D images while pointing out interesting sights along the way, all through the use of a virtual reality headset.

Barracudas and KalliKids are getting Sugar Smart

Barracudas is pleased to announce we are supporting the KalliKids partnership with Sugar Smart, Jamie Oliver’s kids’ sugar initiative.

We are recruiting a Barracudas family to take part in the Sugar Smart challenge, tell us how you get on and inspire other Mums and Dads to help their kids too.

The 12 week challenge is simple and you'll be thanked with £150.

Age Range Change

Following our annual winter review and having read all the feedback from the 2016 seasons, we have made a change to the upper age level of the BX+ group and now only take children up to 14 years old.

As the BX+ group spend half their day with the oldest group on camp, they were often mixing with 11 and 12 year olds. We felt that the development differences between 11 and 16 year old children made it inappropriate to be engaged in the same activities on safety and welfare levels.

The Barracudas activities and structure also requires almost 100% supervision, which is not appropriate for children of this age range who should be allowed more independence. Within this structure, we are currently unable to provide something separate for the oldest children.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause individual families and hope you understand our reasoning. And for those who really miss us, we look forward to receiving staff applications in a few years time!

BX+ Course!

Have you heard about our BX+ Course?

Aimed at 13-14 year olds, joining this course they will get all the buzz of the activity programme plus time each day spent shadowing a member of staff.

Perfect if they fancy finding out what it would be like to work as a member of staff at Barracudas!
