- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
Whist your child is with us you can choose to enrol them in one of our specialist courses. They're a fantastic way for kids to develop important life skills such as swimming, road safety, self-confidence and problem solving!
All of this is done in a safe environment where their welfare is always put first and their progression is set at the right pace for them. You'll often see their independence grow in just one week!
Skills Builder sessions take place each day, Monday to Friday, replacing one standard session.
You don't always need to pre-book these courses, but we recommend that you do as places very often sell out. We have a limited number of spaces on each course so our staff can ensure every child taking part gets individual attention and care. Courses can be added to any week long booking during both Easter, summer and *half term.
Whether it's making foaming volcanoes, growing crystals or creating bouncy balls, our Lab Rats children love this FUN scientific course! This course will run throughout the camp season with 5 structured sessions full of wacky experiments to capture and stretch their imaginations throughout the week! It's educational, but most of all, because it's Barracudas, it's FUN!
Ages 7 - 13years (£45)
New for 2020!
If they love Lab Rats, they’ll go wild for STEM Works! This fun and engaging workshop brings science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life. Kids will develop problem-solving skills and teamwork in these practical sessions where they’ll get the chance to build structures seeing science in action! This can be booked on its own or as a follow on from our popular Lab Rats course for 7+ year olds. Spark their imaginations and ignite their passions with this new course for 2020!
Available at many camps for Easter and all summer camps. Please check your camp for availability at Easter.
Swimming is one of the most important life skills children can learn and what better way to provide that with our 'learn to swim' course! With five structured sessions a week to build vital skills and water confidence, these swimming classes are perfect for beginners looking to make a big splash in those early stages of learning. Qualified lifeguards and instructors will be right by their side every step of the way developing the child's self-belief and ability! All children need is their costume/trunks and towel and we'll provide everything else!
If your children are mad about motors they'll love our Motor Mania course! Whether tearing across the tarmac or gliding across the grass, your children's driving skills will be put to the test in our fantastic selection of quad bikes and go-karts. As well as all the racy stuff they'll learn about road safety, signals and basic mechanics in five one hour sessions each week. All the safety gear is included, so don't worry they won't need their own racing leathers! Just send them along with long trousers and sleeves.
(Max 5 children per group)
