- Why Barracudas?
- Work for us
Barracudas is the UK’s leading holiday camp and has been running now for almost 30 years.
With 42 summer camps in the South East, Barracudas Activity Day Camps offers ample opportunities for a summer of fun!
What makes us stand out from the crowd?
Barracudas has over 80 activities available throughout our holiday camps. We offer a wide range to suit every interest, from specialist sessions such as motor sports, archery and fencing, through to arts and crafts (and everything in between!).
With 6 sessions each day and a choice for every one, there’ll always be something they’ll love to do. Our timetables are carefully designed to offer a balance during the day and throughout the week. Barracudas tailor the sessions to suit the developmental stage of your child, so they’ll always get the most out of their day at camp.
We’re always refreshing what’s on offer. Just take a look at the new activities we’ve added this year.
We carefully select our camp venues to offer convenience for parents and the best facilities for kids.
All our camps are located within easy access to transport links to ensure ease of access, easing the pressures of the commute.
Barracudas always agrees use of a wide range of areas within our venues, making sure kids have all the space and facilities they’ll need to have the best experience at camp. From field space to sports halls, drama studios and art blocks, children will have the run of school so we can offer the full range of our activities.
We’re always looking at ways we can improve your experience. In response to the recent challenges Barracudas introduced our new contactless registration procedures. Parents can now check their children in with their unique QR code and scan this at collection time to sign them out of camp. The QR code is emailed directly to you ahead of camp. No more paperwork, no fuss!
What’s more, we introduced our handy parent app this Easter. Available on your phone you can now access useful information wherever you are and whenever you need to. The Barracudas parent app gives you access to your booking details, including your QR code as well as directions to camp and a handy pre-camp check list.

My daughters 5 and 10 recently attended the Upminster Camp for 2 weeks over Easter and loved it so much I have booked them in again for 2 weeks in the summer. The staff are excellent, I think most of the staff are qualified teachers earning some extra cash during the school holidays and I find this reassuring from a safeguarding perspective. I was really happy with their attention to COVID-safety. Catherine
We sent our son to Croydon for one day in Easter, and he had such a brilliant day. He’s previously been very nervous and upset at holiday clubs so it was great to see that he'd enjoyed himself so much. The staff were lovely, and were very responsive and informative. We’ll definitely be booking for summer! Gemma
My 2 boys had an amazing time at the Upminster camp. They were supposed to stay only for one week but they enjoyed so much they stayed for another week. They had loads of different activities to choose from. They came home happy every day! They staff were always friendly, professional and helpful. The kids can’t wait to go back again in the summer!
