Staff Testimonial

I started working at the beginning of summer 2016 as a Senior Sports Instructor at Harlow camp. What I enjoyed most at camp was, the range of different activities was so broad it made making the experience as enjoyable and varied as possible. Working with barracudas has helped me to improve my leadership skills through a hands-on experience. Also this has helped me to gather skills and ideas on how to differentiate any game to get maximum enjoyment for the children. I would definitely recommend Barracudas to anyone, as there really is no job like it. Every day was different and you get paid to have fun with the children at camp! All the staff were fantastic and the facilities are amazing! I can't wait to go back!
