My little one attended the half-term camp at Barnet for the first time and was incredibly happy to go in every day of the week. The staff was friendly and understanding. The website and booking process was straightforward and the whole experience was truly value for money. I would highly recommend the Barracudas Activity Day Camps. Deebak
My children ages 8 & 11 attended Barracudas in Romford for 1 week during summer holidays. This was their first experience attending a holiday camp and they both had a great time, especially my youngest who is keen to return again. Everything appeared to be well organised, and there was a lot of activity choice throughout the day. The staff communication was good and I felt aware of what was happening / any issues etc. This camp had been recommended to us by a friend who also only had good things to say, and we weren't disappointed.

Last year was our first year at Barracudas Hertford...our son has spent the whole year counting down to this summer! From a parent point of view Barracudas makes life easy- we booked in January and paid over a few months, it makes it great value too. The staff are superb, many of the same faces as last year too which made us all happy. The new site is great. Our son has loved everyday again this year and is already planning next year! A big well done to Niamh and the whole team, time for a well deserved break! Marcia
My son absolutely loved his time at Barracudas in Chelmsford. Lots of fun activities for him, peace of mind for me. We will definitely be back. Nicoleta

My child attended Hutton camp last week and this week and was always very excited to come back! Woke me up very early asking me when we were leaving to go to camp! Staff are very good and the senior management team are very helpful and friendly. Excellent registration and collection, the 2 management ladies on the desk (Paige and Chloe) are always smiling and remember the children's names which is amazing! He has said he has really enjoyed his time. Will definitely rebook for Easter next year! JL
Is our first time at Barracudas Watford but definitely not the last. My son absolutely loves it, every morning he is very excited to attend and to have fun. I just told him that 2 day left from the summer camp and his answer was, oh mummy why?! For us as a parent means a lot, espacialy that he is the first child and first time in summer camp, didn't know what to expect. A huge thank you for all staff members from Barracudas Watford. ALC
Wow! My two daughters had an amazing week at Barracudas Barnet, they came home shattered everyday but smiling and full of stories about all the different activities they were able to take part in. They brought home some fantastic art work and were showing me the dance routines they learnt. The team at the desk are fantastic too. I am a working parent and it’s great to know my girls are safe and happy. Already booked for the summer holidays and told my friends to book in too. Sarah

This is my son second year at barracudas in Hertford and he absolutely loved it! He came back at the end of the day so happy about the activities he chose, from fencing to swimming! He saw friends from school or other sport clubs and also makes new friends. The staff is really nice and friendly and it is well organised. Catherine

Fantastic holiday camp at Waldegrave , Twickenham. High praise to Ash for leading a great team. Henry was sad it was his last day today and actually spent a moment to reflect on his great summer outside the gates. I asked him what his favourite part was and he said "the staff". Barracudas clearly getting it right for Henry (9 years). See you next year. New customer
Our daughters attended Barracudas Salisbury for two weeks this summer. The eldest is very enthusiastic and talkative and we knew that she was going to do great. But our little one (just 4.5yo) is quite shy and her first language is not English. By the third day, both woke up early and asked me to take them there as soon as possible. The staff at Salisbury is fantastic, especially the ones in charge of the little ones. Everyone was super kind and always smiling at our girls, and very communicative with us. Everything was organized with lots of activities to choose from. Adriana
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

Honestly couldn’t recommend more highly. Varied number of fun activities throughout the week, outstanding staff with a friendly but professional attitude. A very slick operation and much loved by the little ones! Polly
Hertford Barracudas: My son Josh had the time of his life, coming home tired but full of wonderful stories about his day, everyday, it was a joy to see. Would definitely recommend. James

My little man Jacob is a little shy to begin with at new things and had never been to a camp before. He has been at the colchester camp for the last 3 weeks and absolutely LOVED it!! The best part of his day when asked is “swimming and the billy hunt”!! He’s progressed so much with his confidence in the water that I’ve now registered him for swimming lessons at his request! The staff are friendly and warm and interact with Jacob so well and he talks about Hannah, Annalese, Luca, Phoebe, Sophie and Kiera a lot! So happy he settled in well and was upset this morning at drop off it’ll be his last day. Big thank you to the Colchester team, Jacob WILL BE BACK x Lorna
My son (5) had his first summer at the Watford camp. He is very shy and was very nervous and upset when he started, but the staff have been incredible. They’ve supported him and understood how to make him feel comfortable, and as a result he’s joined in loads of the activities (a huge deal for him) and had a great time. Thank you Watford Barracudas :) C Paredes
The Long Roqd Barracudas holiday club is great. The activities are brilliant and varied, from Go Karting to yoga there is such a great mix. The staff are caring and kind. My son was going through a tricky time and the manager and the leader managing his group were so understanding and supportive. They checked in with my son and made sure he was ok so he felt happy and secure. I am so grateful for all their help. Nancy
My child gets a bit anxious so booked one day to see how he got on. I’ve never seen such a big smile at pick up time accompanied by a “I’ve had the best day of my life”! He’s not stopped buzzing about it since and is desperate to go again. Thank you all so much for making his day so much fun and anxiety free. Ailsa
