For the past 30 years, Barracudas Activity Day Camps has been providing a fun and safe environment for children to enjoy a wide range of activities during school holidays. With over 50 locations across the UK, Barracudas has become a household name for parents looking to keep their kids entertained during the summer, Easter, and half-term breaks.
The story of Barracudas begins in 1992 when Neil Greatorex, passionate about providing children with opportunities to learn and grow through play, opened the first 2 Barracudas Activity Day camps in London and Surrey.
The mission was to create a space where children could try new activities and build new friendships in a supportive and positive environment. The aim was to give every child such an amazing experience they can’t wait to come back!
Getting bigger and better
The first Barracudas camp was an instant success. Within 3 years Barracudas had expanded to 5 camps and 10 years later had grown to 28 summer camps and 6 Easter camps throughout the South East.
With a fantastic variety of activities, including swimming, sports, teambuilding, arts and crafts, and outdoor adventures, all led by qualified and experienced staff, kids are guaranteed an adventure at Barracudas.
Barracudas has continued to grow and develop over the years. We’re committed to offering the best experience both for children and parents.
