- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
Now, more than ever, we’re conscious of finding ways to help our children’s development as well as their mental and physical health and well-being.
With months of lockdown isolation, kids mental and physical health has been put under pressure. According to this article from The Guardian, psychologists have reported behavioural changes in kids following the last lockdown and Ofsted have noted a decline in physical fitness in young people. Experts are asking the government to support a 'summer of play' to help children recover from the negative effects of being kept at home and we couldn't agree more!
Following the recent government announcement, we're delighted to be able to open our Easter camps as well as our summer camps this year so they can get the full benefits in just a couple of weeks time.
It’s our activity camp mission to provide kids with a fun experience in a safe and secure environment and to ‘give them such an amazing time that they can’t wait to come back’.
Whilst we’re making adjustments to make sure we can offer COVID-19 Secure Camps, Barracudas is committed to offering a unique and rewarding experience every time.
Here are the key ways in which your child will benefit from attending our school holiday clubs this Easter and summer:
Activity camps are the perfect environment for kids to take part in something new. Whatever their interests are, our unrivaled activities give them the opportunity to take part in sessions that will inspire them. From team sports and swimming to science and arts and crafts Barracudas really does offer something for everyone. Who knows what new passion they’ll come home with. Bring on the adventure!
As most kids have not been able to attend their schools for a significant amount of time recently, they have missed seeing their friends. Barracudas activity camps are the perfect environment to meet new friends, face to face! Our COVID-19 Secure Camps policy will mean that kids can safely make new friends in a secure environment. They’ll get the most out of new interactions with a consistent set of peers, developing meaningful friendships within their bubbles.
Children are developing all the time. Education settings obviously have a huge impact on our kid’s growth. During the school holidays activity camps are a great way to continue their development. From improving social skills, to finding new interests and having new experiences, Barracudas age appropriate activities offered within a secure environment amongst a tight-knit peer group are ideal for them to spread their wings!
More than ever, we know how important it is to find ways to keep our kids active. Look no further than a multi activity camp to keep them active and engaged in the school holidays. With more activities than you can shake a stick at, they’ll be jumping for joy. You don’t need to be a sport billy to get involved in what’s on offer. From unique games to team events, it’s all about fun at Barracudas.
Kids love to get outside for fun, but in the school holidays it’s not always possible to get them out and about. Holiday clubs are a perfect place for them to make the most of the opportunity to get their fix of the great outdoors. Barracudas camp venues are carefully selected to give them the best facilities, both indoors and outside. With a variety of activities carefully selected for each age group, there’s no lack of opportunity for them to fill their lungs and benefit from the fresh air.
Holiday camps are a great way to boost your child’s self-esteem. With the chance to try out new activities in a fun and relaxed environment, they may just find they have a particular skill or strength they didn’t know about previously, which will boost their confidence. Kids also adjust to an unfamiliar setting with people they don’t know yet, encouraging adaptability, so they’ll be less likely to fear change in future. Kids consistently leave Barracudas with a greater resilience and self-belief.
Kids mental health and well-being has recently been identified as a key priority. It’s something that Barracudas has always made a priority. The social interactions within groups and with our supportive staff are crucial at camp. Keeping active and engaged with the amazing variety of activities and experiences really help to keep kids feeling positive.
We can’t wait to see how your child develops with us this year!
