There are great reasons to book your child's summer holiday activities with us for 2022 now. This year is our 30th year of giving kids an amazing experience in the school holidays and we're looking forward to another summer of fun at camp. Whilst you might not yet be thinking about holiday childcare, there are plenty of reasons to book with us now:
Early booking rates
You can get our great rates by booking now! Working out to be as little as £4.33 an hour, you can be sure you’ll be getting a bargain by getting in early. Not only that but you can secure your child’s place at camp with low deposit rates. You can guarantee their spot for just £15 a day or £50 a week.
Spread the cost with interest-free payments
Our Easy Payment Plan (EPP) allows you to pay in instalments right up to our balance due date. Once you’ve paid your deposit, we’ll take monthly interest-free payments automatically, up to the summer balance due date on 1st July. The earlier you book, the less you’ll need to pay each month. You can even use Childcare Vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare to make these payments.
Pay with Childcare Vouchers and Tax-Free childcare
You can use Childcare Vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare as full or part payment for your child’s Barracudas booking. We’re set up with all the main Childcare Voucher providers and will happily look into setting up any that aren't already on our list.
Flex booking options available
We understand that your holiday and childcare plans can change right up until the last minute. That’s why we offer our Flex booking option. If you want complete flexibility to change your booking, our Flex option is for you. 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.
Barracudas offers flexible dates
It makes sense to get in early at Barracudas. We understand that your plans might not be set in stone just yet and that things can change with children so we'll happily change your dates up to 21 days before they start camp (subject to availability).
Money back guarantee for first time bookers
We offer a no-quibble Money Back Guarantee if you’re booking a child into Barracudas for the first time. We’re sure they’ll have a great time, but to put your mind at rest, we promise to refund your booking - all of it - if they don’t!
Barracudas camps are registered with Ofsted. Our camps are regularly visited by the officials from Ofsted and we’ve got a great track record! Barracudas has been rated Outstanding more times than any of our competitors. Since the ratings changed last year from Outstanding to Requires Improvement to a more simplified ‘Met’ or ‘Not Met’ all of the camps visited in the summer were rated ‘Met’. That’s peace of mind for you!
Parents confirm we are a trusted provider by leaving their independent reviews. With over 900 reviews, we’re pleased to have an excellent rating and consistently receive positive comments such as these:
Our 5 year old daughter had so much fun. Her words .. “i wish school could be as fun” Only down fall was getting her to be happy settling back into school after such a great time at Barracudas. She loved all the activities available. Would highly recommend. Zoe
Highly recommend Huntingdon Barracudas camp. Our daughter has been going to this camp for the last 4 years and loves it. There are so many activities available with no day being the same. The staff are helpful, friendly and genuinely care about each and every child. Keep up the great work 👍 Leigh
My son attended the Barracudas Camp in High Wycombe. He absolutely loved every day he spent there and couldn't wait to go back. Would 100% recommend the camps, very slick registration and collection each day and the variety of activities on offer to the children was amazing. Will definitely book again. Anna
My niece goes to the Chelmsford Barracudas and she has been absolutely overjoyed so far! It’s all she’s been able to talk about when she gets home! Additionally, the staff are super friendly and professional; her parents were originally worried to place her in a camp as such but seeing the warmth from the people at Barracudas really put their minds at ease. I tell you one thing’s for sure: I wish I went to Barracudas when I was a child now because I don’t think I’ve ever seen my niece this happy! Louise
My 14 year old loves coming every holiday. The leaders are great mentors for him and he gets more exercise than I could possibly organise for him otherwise. I can give him gaming time with a clear conscience afterwards and he sleeps like a baby every night😁 Jo
Barracudas has unrivalled activities
Of course, it’s all about their experience. It’s all well and good getting prepared early, but you’ll want to know that they’ll have an amazing experience when the time comes. Barracudas has over 80 activities for children. These are carefully selected to suit the different interests of the children who come to our camps. From specialist activities such as fencing and Motorsports (age-appropriate options for 4 ½ - 6 year olds - not available at half terms) through to team sports, water fun, drama and arts & crafts, there’s something for everyone. There are 6 sessions each day and kids get a choice of activity for each one.
