- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
Barracudas is a leading provider of children's school holiday clubs, dedicated to providing a fun, safe and stimulating environment for children to learn, grow and make new friends.
At the heart of Barracudas' philosophy is our ACTIVE motto, which stands for Athletic, Creative, Teamwork, Inspiring, Variety, and Energetic.
Here's a little insight into how these elements come together to create a truly unforgettable camp experience.
The Athletic element of Barracudas' ACTIVE motto is all about getting kids moving, building their physical fitness, and developing their coordination and motor skills. At Barracudas, children have the opportunity to try out a wide range of sports and activities, from football and basketball to swimming (where available), archery, and more. But it's not just about competitive sports – Barracudas also offers dance, yoga, and other non-sporting activities that get kids up and moving. By encouraging physical activity in a supportive and fun environment, we help children develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime.
Creativity is essential to human growth and development, and at Barracudas, it's a key part of the camp experience. The Creative element of the ACTIVE motto includes activities like art, dance, drama, and cooking (selected camps), which help children develop their imaginations, express themselves, and build confidence. Barracudas provides all the materials and equipment children need to explore their creativity, and our experienced staff are always on hand to offer guidance and encouragement. Whether children want to make a clay sculpture, paint a picture, or create a dance routine, Barracudas gives them the space and support to do so.
At Barracudas, children learn the value of working together and supporting each other through the Teamwork element of our ACTIVE motto. Through activities like team sports, group games, and collaborative arts projects, children develop communication skills, learn to trust one another, and build a sense of community. They also learn to respect each other's differences and appreciate the unique strengths that each member of the team brings. By fostering a sense of teamwork and collaboration, we help children develop the social skills and emotional intelligence they need to thrive in all areas of their lives.
The Inspiring element of our ACTIVE motto is all about encouraging children to explore their interests, try new things, and push themselves to achieve their goals. Whether it's mastering a new skill, or taking on a new challenge, Barracudas provides children with the support and encouragement they need to succeed. Our enthusiastic staff are always on hand to offer guidance and advice, and they work with each child to set achievable goals and help them track their progress. By inspiring children to take on new challenges and develop their skills, we help them build confidence, resilience, and a sense of achievement.
One of the things that sets Barracudas apart from other activity camps is the sheer variety of activities on offer. From sports and arts to science and technology, Barracudas provides children with a diverse range of activities to explore. This variety ensures that there's something for everyone, no matter what their interests or abilities. It also means that children have the opportunity to try new things and discover new passions, broadening their horizons and expanding their minds.
Finally, the Energetic element of our ACTIVE motto reflects the high-energy atmosphere of a Barracudas camp. From the moment children arrive at camp, they're swept up in a whirlwind of activity and excitement. Our vibrant and enthusiastic staff create a fun and engaging environment that keeps children energized and motivated throughout the day. Whether it's playing games, trying new activities, or simply having fun with friends, the energy at Barracudas is infectious, and children can't help but get caught up in the excitement.
At Barracudas, the ACTIVE motto is more than just a set of words – it's a philosophy that shapes every aspect of the camp experience. By providing a diverse range of activities that promote physical fitness, creativity, teamwork, and personal growth, we help children develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in all areas of their lives.
But perhaps the most important aspect of our ACTIVE motto is that it's designed with children in mind. The timetables are carefully planned to ensure that children have a balanced and enjoyable experience. With a choice for every session, they'll always be doing something they love. Our staff are trained to provide a safe and supportive environment, and they work hard to create a sense of community and belonging among the campers.
Ultimately, the goal of our ACTIVE motto is to create a camp experience that children will never forget – one that inspires them to try new things, make new friends, and grow as individuals. Whether children attend Barracudas for just one week or the entire school holiday they leave with memories that will last a lifetime.
Our ACTIVE motto is about our commitment to providing a fun, safe, and stimulating environment for children. By focusing on six key elements – Athletic, Creative, Teamwork, Inspiring, Variety, and Energetic – Barracudas creates a camp experience that is as enriching as it is enjoyable. So if you're looking for an activity camp that truly delivers on its promise to help children grow and develop, look no further than Barracudas.
