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!

Camp Staff Working Hours

Recently, Barracudas reviewed both staff and parent feedback forms to create new ways to make our service even better! As a result, the decision has been made to reconsider staff hours, making sure camps are run as efficiently as possible!

Red Shirts:

For all general staff, shifts will no longer be rotated as in previous years. Instead, staff hours will remain constant throughout the season and will be dependent on individual job roles. Therefore, working hours will operate as follows:

Lifeguards, Fencing Instructors and Multi Activity Instructors will work:


For all general staff, working hours will be: 


Staff who work on a 1 to 1 basis will work:


Any general staff that work Early/Late Clubs will still be paid £5.25 per session, so if you would like to work these clubs please inform your senior team at induction training. There must be a minimum of 2 First Aid trained staff at these clubs at all times.

*If the child being supported is booked into Early or Late club, working hours will be extended and additional pay will be provided.

Blue Shirts:

Due to a restructuring of the senior team, working hours have been adapted to ensure that at least 2 Managers are always on site during operating hours, allowing further support to the camp team. Hours are as follows:

Camp and Early Years Managers will work:


Assistant Managers will work:


Senior Sports Instructors will work:


Camp Administrators will work:
