- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
There are great reasons to book your child's school holiday activities with us for 2023 now. We've been giving kids an amazing experience in the school holidays for over 30 years and we're looking forward to another year of fun at camp. There are plenty of reasons to book with us now:
You can get our great rates by booking now! Working out to be from as little as £4.38 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.
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.
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.
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 14 days before they start camp (subject to availability).
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. Whilst Easter is almost upon us, this will really help with your summer holiday club bookings! Just pay the deposit, then spread the costs up to the summer balance due date on 3rd 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.
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 in 2021 from Outstanding to Requires Improvement to a more simplified ‘Met’ or ‘Not Met’ all of our camps that have been visited have been rated ‘Met’. That’s peace of mind for you!
Parents confirm we are a trusted provider by leaving their independent reviews. With over 1,200 reviews, we’re pleased to have an excellent rating and consistently receive positive comments such as these:
This was our second year of booking Barracudas in Salisbury over the summer holidays - and once again it was impeccable. The staff are professional and child-focused, going out of their way to understand the individual needs and personalities of each child. The range of activities on offer is fantastic, as is the relief of finding a holiday club that your child actually wants to go to every morning. Lauren
I've been using Barracudas in Tonbridge for a few years now to entertain my boys during the school holidays. The staff are fantastic, always really friendly and helpful. My children have made lots of friends over the years, and there's always a good range of activities for them to choose from. Would highly recommend! K Cowell
High Wycombe camp - BRILLIANT Our 10 year son has been coming to Barracudas for the last 5 years, our 5 year old daughter first attended last summer. Came again this Easter, both love Barracudas, lots of different activities for them to choose from, location is fantastic & well worth the money. Staff are amazing, they know the children & are very approachable. Highly recommend. Pamela
Having a 13 year old child can be extremely hard to entertain. Barracudas was always an option as my son and his best friend have worked here. I decided to put my youngest son in here for one day and he had a great day. So happy to have taken the lunge to put him in barracudas. A very happy 13 year old begging to go back before he’s to old and a very happy parent knowing my son had such a great day. Jen
The Barracudas camp at Hertford has been absolutely fantastic throughout the summer. Our son has had a fantastic time and the range of activities on offer each day has been brilliant. The staff are friendly and always helpful. Our son has made lots of friends at the camp and tried so many new activities. At the end of each day he can’t wait to go back. Duncan
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 based on our ACTIVE motto and 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.

We look forward to welcoming your child to camp this year!
