Either way your booking will save on our system for 7 days until we receive your childcare vouchers. After this date, if we haven't received payment for your booking it will be automatically removed.
However, if you are booking within 21 days of the booking start date you will be required to pay by a credit/debit card at the time of booking and then be reimbursed once we receive your childcare vouchers.
For full details please see our Childcare voucher page.
Yes, you can pay in full or make a part payment using Tax-Free Childcare. You can select the option to pay by Tax-Free childcare online and enter your long reference number (1st letter of your child's name followed by the 1st 3 letters of your child's surname then 5 numbers) or let us know when you book by phone. If you do not have your long reference number at the time of booking please notify us of this by email within 24 hours of completing the booking.
Like childcare voucher payments, the booking will save on our system for 7 days. If we haven't received the minimum payment for you booking by this time the booking will be automatically removed. If you are booking within 21 days of the booking start date you will need to make the full payment by credit/debit card at the time of booking which we will reimburse you once we receive the Tax-Free Childcare payment.

We know plans can change and that’s why we offer you a choice of flexibility with your booking. You can book one of two products; a Flex or Non-Flex option. Please choose the right level of flexibility for you.
If you book our Flex option (just £4 per day) you can change your dates or cancel right up until the last working day before your child’s first day at camp in the week. Plus, if your child is ill and can’t attend, we’ll make up the days or refund you, your choice. In order to process a refund, please complete a refund request form with a few further details and email -
With our Non-Flex option, you can book now knowing that you can still make changes to your booking up to 21 days before your booking starts. This booking option is non-refundable.
See full details of our Flex and Non-Flex options here and read our Terms & Conditions for a full understanding.
With our Non-Flex option, you can still make changes to the dates on your booking (within the same season) up to 21 days before your child is due to attend. This type of booking cannot be cancelled and is non-refundable. See full Terms and Conditions.
Please note: If we're unable to operate your camp week due to COVID-19, we will move your booking to another week during that holiday, or to another season in the year. Where this isn’t possible, we’ll give a credit note to use with us another time, or we’ll offer you a full refund.
We understand that your childcare plans can change and that’s why we offer our Flex and Non-Flex booking options. If you want complete flexibility to change your booking later, our Flex option would be best suited to you. This allows you to amend your booking up to the last working day before your child’s first day at camp in the week plus, allows for amendments or a refund due to illness.
With our Non-Flex option, you can still change dates (within the same season) up to 21 days before your child is due to attend, but the booking cannot be cancelled and is non-refundable.
Please see Terms & Conditions for full details.
After you've made your booking you'll receive an email confirmation with all your booking details attached. Please make sure you check your invoice and let us know right away if anything is incorrect. Responsibility for all booking details lies with the person who made the booking.
Before your child comes to camp there are a few pre-arrival forms to complete. We can't accept any child on camp without an Essential Information form. This must be completed by midnight on the Sunday before the week they’re due to attend. To complete this you need to login to your Barracudas account and access the form under the 'Bookings' tab.
You can also access this from our new parent app, available on Android and iOS. Just search ‘Barracudas Activity Day Camp’ and log in with your online account details.
