Here are our top reasons why you should book your child’s school holiday fun with Barracudas.
Barracudas offers the best selection of activities for children with over 80 activities available. Our wide range of options have been designed to appeal to every child, whatever their interests.
From sports, to teamwork and specialist activities through to arts and crafts and dance. Not forgetting our great range of water activities, with swimming available at locations that have pools to the water park and aqua slide for outdoor water fun in the summer.
We don’t do things by halves and know that kids love variety. Because of this, and because every child is different, we offer a choice for every session. This means there’ll always be something they’ll love to do every second of the day.
We’re committed to always delivering on quality. ACTIVE motto is at the heart of our timetable. This helps to make sure that children are always developing as well as having fun at camp.
Our venues are carefully selected, making sure we can offer all the facilities to accommodate our wide range of activities. All our locations are convenient for parents so you can get to camp then on with your day without fuss.
We have wide access to the whole site at each location. With lots of outdoor space, sports halls, specialist rooms such as dance studios and art rooms. Not only that but we have a dedicated room for each group. Our baserooms give each group to bond and chill out together, which results in a real sense of belonging at camp.
Helping kids mental and physical health
It’s been a challenging time for children in recent years. We’re aware of the importance of supporting kids mental and physical wellbeing now, even more than ever. From keeping active to making new friends and building self confidence, find just 5 ways on how children benefit from an activity camp here.
Belong to something special
At Barracudas, it's not just about turning up and filling in time. Children get the chance to be a part of something special at our holiday clubs. Each season new friendships and memories are made.
Kids enjoy a real sense of belonging. Each group has it’s own identity and each child shapes the camp experience. We love the unique atmosphere that’s created by every individual child and staff member. Children leave camp each day having had a truly unique experience.
