- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
One of the goals of our school holiday camps is to help your child develop new skills and interests that boost their confidence and help build them into well-rounded individuals.
We offer additional courses for kids of all age groups who attend a full week during Easter camp, summer camp and half term camps for an additional fee.
We can promise they’ll have fun learning on our Skill Builder Courses.
Lab Rats is exclusively for the younger kids attending our school holiday camps – that’s children aged four-and-a-half to eight.
We’ve brought together a bunch of exciting experiments that will get them thinking about science and the world around them.
In groups of up to eight children, they’ll make their own bouncy balls and build model bridges. Then there’s the chance to create a seething, foaming volcano, as well as other “earth-shattering” activities.
Over five structured sessions, we’re teaching problem solving skills to kids who won’t realise they’re learning because they’re having too much fun to notice.
Barracudas brings science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life in our exciting new STEM Works course.
New for this year, kids will love seeing science in action throughout the week in these practical workshops.
The sessions will spark new passions for 7 - 13 year olds as we've carefully selected the best experiments they can try out.
If they've enjoyed Lab Rats, STEM Works is an excellent progression for them. Our trained instructors will be on hand to engage and inspire in these fun sessions.
Another new course for 2020, Dance Fusion will get them in a spin!
Kids will love trying a new genre each day of the week, giving them the opportunity to explore a wide range of different dance styles and develop new skills.
Ideal for 7 - 13 year olds, they'll build their strength and develop stamina and coordination in these energetic sessions. On the last day, they'll chose their favourite style of the week to perform for each other.
They’ll come back home brimming with confidence after picking up new dance skills and techniques.
Next stop, Bournemouth!
Swimming is so much more than one of our most popular camp activities for kids – it’s a valuable life skill that can save lives.
That’s why we run a Swim School for 7 - 13 year olds attending our school holiday camps who perhaps don’t have confidence in the water.
Over five structured sessions, run by life guards and qualified instructors, beginners become swimmers as coaches stoke up their self-belief.
With groups limited to five, each learner gets the attention they need as they build their confidence and ability in the water.
Motor Mania is where it’s at for petrol heads aged 7 - 13 at our school holiday camps.
They’ll get to hone their driving skills on tarmac and grass using our selection of go-karts and quad bikes.
But it’s not just about racing – we’ll get them up to speed on road safety, signals and basic mechanics. Remember, we’re all about minds, as well as bodies.
Safety equipment is supplied for the five one-hour sessions – but be sure to send your child in long trousers if they’re aiming to become a star of the test track.
