- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
At Barracudas Holiday camps we know everyone is different, that’s why we have over 80+ activities and offer a choice for every session.
We know every family is different and we are here to make your life as busy parents slightly easier so you can have a stress–free (well almost) summer too!
We have a few optional extras you can add on at the time of booking or book later should you wish.
With our standard activity camp hours running from 8.30 - 5.30 we know that this might not fit in with everyone's working day.
As an additional service at our UK school holiday camps, we run Early and Late Clubs. Perfect for allowing a bit of breathing space for you as busy parents, and to ensure you are not running around like a headless chicken most days!
The Early and Late clubs allow a little bit more flexibility, opening at 8am and closing at 6pm. These are flexible and can be booked on the days you require them.
It’s an additional £5 for each morning or afternoon session you book, which can be done at the point of booking, flexibility is key.
That is maximum fun for kids and peace of mind for you!
We understand that things change, and especially with children this can be right up to the last minute. So, our Flex booking option is here to support you, giving you peace of mind for just £4 per day.
Our Flex option means you can amend your booking right up to the last working day before your child is due to attend in any given week. Plus, Flex allows for amendments or a refund to be made if your child is ill and cannot attend.
Take a look at Booking with Flex our Booking Info FAQs for more information on this along with other booking details.
