- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
Your kids will have the best time at a Barracudas Summer Camp. We go out of our way to make every second of every day as fun as possible!
But as well as being amazing fun for children, our summer camps are great for parents, too.
And no, not because they’ll give you a bit of peace and quiet for a change! Though there is that…
No, summer camps are great for parents because they help your children to grow.
If this is your child’s first time at a Barracudas Activity Camp, then it might also be their first ever taste of independence. They’ll be in a completely new environment, away from mum and dad, and surrounded by a diverse group of children their own age.
But unlike at school or nursery, where the mission is to learn, at Barracudas, we’re all about the FUN.
There’s no words to describe how liberating this can be for your child; how it can enable them to mature into a well-rounded, forward-thinking individual; and how these benefits will be felt long after they’ve left camp for the last time.
Here’s just a small selection of the many reasons why parents everywhere love summer camps:
Summer Camps Make Your Children More Willing to Try New Things – At Barracudas, we offer a staggering choice of activities for children of all ages. No matter what they’re into, whether it’s sports, acting, dancing, or arts and crafts, we guarantee that we’ll put on the sort of activities that are beyond their wildest dreams. And any child who spends their summer trying new things is bound to become more adventurous and outgoing in other areas of their life.
Summer Camps Can Make Your Children More Confident and Independent – No matter what the activity options are – football or drama; swimming or teambuilding etc. – the final choice will always come down to your child. They’ll never be pressured into anything, and they’ll always have the ultimate say in what they do.
Summer Camps Can Make Your Children More Sociable and Compassionate – Though we make every effort to place friends together, it’s more than likely that your child will spend their time at Barracudas in the company of children they’ve never met before. They’ll therefore have to quickly learn to make new friends outside of the more structured school environment. But you’d be amazed at how naturally most children take to this. And what’s more, these are the sort of social skills that could serve them well for the rest of their life.
Summer Camps Can Teach Your Children to Value the Things That Really Matter – Many parents these days worry that their children are spending far too much time glued to their smartphone screens. But if your child spends their summer at a Barracudas activity camp, they’ll be spending their summer trying new things while playing in the sunshine with children their own age. Nothing beats this. Not even Minecraft!
It’s true – summer camps can make your children more independent, more confident and – dare we say it – more polite and easy-going!
No wonder parents love Barracudas so much!
Indeed, our very own Karen sent her four year old to his very first Barracudas camp this Easter.
“His independence and confidence has grown massively,” she said. “Plus, he can’t wait to go back in the summer!”
