Staff Testimonial

I worked as an Early Years Coorindator but being inflatable and water park trained allowed me to run and have experience doing a wide range of activities across all age groups at camp. I would highly recommend taking the opportunity to do any training, as your camp days will be more varied. The staff on camp were fantastic people too, all friendly and all wanting to follow the barracudas values. You do work very hard, but the days are rewarding with lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Thanks for a great 4 weeks Romford! Until next time.
