- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
Barracudas activities have been expertly designed to give every child such an amazing experience they can’t wait to come back.
Our timetable is all about promoting an active lifestyle. We offer a huge range of sessions that will always be fun, varied and built on our ACTIVE motto!
Kids get great benefits from being active, and it’s vital for their development and physical wellbeing to keep moving!
Physical activity is important for kids to grow up to have strong bones and muscles, maintain a healthy weight as well as building their confidence. Barracudas have an active option for every session each day. With our unrivalled number of activities, there’ll be a wide range of sports from Dodgeball (always a firm favourite) through to Kinball and even Quidditch!
Kids will get the chance to pick their familiar favourites, or give new sessions a go.
Example activities: Ball sports, Barracudas Olympics, Kinball, Football Camp, Tennis Tournament, Pop Lacrosse
We know that every child is different. Barracudas supports art lovers and creative thinkers with multiple options. Creative activities foster mental growth by providing opportunities for trying out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem solving.
Our artistic sessions are carefully thought out to make sure they’re age appropriate for each group at camp. Kids will get the chance to work with a number of different materials from clay to textiles and, of course, paint, to express themselves and create masterpieces they will treasure from camp.
Example activities: Big Box Challenge, Making Playdough, Mask Making, Paper Mache Frames, Clay Pots
Teamwork is an essential life skill for kids to master. At Barracudas, they'll have the opportunity to learn problem solving, listening, leadership, communication and creative thinking.
Our carefully thought out programme of activities offers plenty of sessions for them to develop these skills. Children will leave Barracudas with higher levels of self-confidence, self-esteem, patience, empathy, and compassion.
In teambuilding sessions, young people at camp will learn how to work together to solve problems and achieve results.
Example activities: Orienteering, Code Cracker, Human Knot, Bridge Challenge, River Crossing
Children deserve to keep being inspired in the school holidays. Our timetables are carefully considered to make sure there’s plenty on offer to inspire children.
From popular favourites to new activities and specialist sessions, they’ll be wow’d with what’s on offer. The fact that we offer a choice for each session, means that children can be in control of their day which really keeps them engaged and motivated.
Our sessions are delivered by enthusiastic, well-trained professionals who bring each activity to life. Children at camp respond so positively to our camp staff that they develop new passions and leave camp with lasting memories.
Example activities: *Motorsports, *Fencing, *Archery, Barracudas Got Talent, Bottle Volcanoes, Croccer, Kinball, Lab Rats
*Available Easter and summer only
Variety is the spice of life! It's our mission to provide children with widest range of options at Barracudas camps. With 6 sessions each day and a choice for each one, our timetables are carefully planned to make sure kids will be kept motivated all day, and throughout the week.
Children are not carbon copies. Each child has a different range of interests and we try hard to make sure that there is always something on offer they’ll love – for every session!
Just like having a healthy diet, offering a wide variety of activities provides balance for children. We know how important it is that they develop key life skills at camp. With our varied range of activities, kids always grow during their time with us. On top of that, they have the chance to find new passions which they continue after camp.
Example activities: Inflatable Assault Course, Bar rumba, Circus Skills, *Aqua slide, Swimming, Water Activities, Yoga
*Available summer only
Energetic play has significant benefits for children. With increasingly sedate lifestyles, we know how important it is to get kids moving.
Participating in energetic activities not only improves physical fitness but also had a hugely positive effect on mental well-being.
As well as mastering techniques such as how to run, throw, catch, jump, kids also develop key skills through energetic activities including coordination, self-esteem and resilience. They’ll leave camp with a greater level of stamina and fitness than when they joined us.
Our timetable is full of activities that’ll have them jumping for joy. There’s always an age appropriate activity on offer to get them moving. From new sessions to firm favourites, they’ll love what’s on offer!
Example activities: Move Like Jackson, Kwik Cricket, Minute To Win It, Ultimate Frisbee
