A: For 2020, Barracudas will provide all new staff with branded uniform consisting of 2 T-shirts (3 for Lifeguards) and a jumper which can be kept when you finish working with us. Any staff that worked in 2019 and return to work in a future season will need to use the jumper that we have previously provided, however you will still be given 2 new branded T-shirts every season.
A: Wages vary depending on your role, age and experience. The wages can be viewed on the job descriptions of each job role. Payroll is processed on the last day of camp and will land 5 working days later. In summer, there may be an additional payroll processed earlier in the season, depending on when the camp you are working at opens.
A: We offer the opportunity for children to book onto our intensive courses for an additional fee. These include: Motor Mania, Lab Rats (fun based science experiments), Dance Fusion, STEM Works and Swim School. They focus on a small group of the same children for an hour a day to progress their skills in that area. As these courses are progressive, children must be booked in for the full week in order to attend. Some instructors will be involved in running these courses.
A: Our theme days are a great excuse for everyone to dress up, have a good time and are loved by children and staff, so don’t miss your chance to take part in it! Theme days will take place on the last day of each week. For more information on themes and dates please see the Theme Days page.
A: You'll get wet! We can't organise the weather but we do have a wet weather programme which swings into operation when it becomes too bad to be outside. If it is light rain we will continue outside, so make sure you bring adequate outdoor clothing.
As a children’s activity provider, we are conscientious in our role to keep everyone who visits us safe. We are following all of the official guidance issued by government departments and medical authorities, and will continue to do so as the situation develops and more information becomes available. As a result of the current guidance, we have implemented additional hygiene procedures, including the provision of anti-bacterial gel and extra cleaning facilities to all camps. Our camps will be emphasising the NHS’ “catch it, bin it, kill it” policy as well as encouraging regular hand washing. Staff training has been increased, including training on our streamlined isolation procedures. We will continue to act in accordance with all official guidance as it develops and we will update you with any additions to our policies prior to your attendance at our camps.
