Staff Testimonial

Wow. What an amazing, fun and fabulous place and people to work with. I have been truly inspired and learnt new games and skills towards working with children. Refreshed my attitude and love for working with kids completely and got me on the field as surposed to behind a desk. 100% putting my own kids names down for camp next year and looking forward to working there next year.

I worked as a group assistant for three weeks in the summer and had the most amazing experience. It was challenging, rewarding, enjoyable and informative.

It was physically and mentally challenging because you are always incredibly busy, but you got home after a long day excited for the next. Being surrounded with so many lovely people as your colleagues was a big help and made the experience so much more enjoyable; friendships were created as a result. Everyone worked so well as a team and learnt from each other of a daily basis. There was never a day that I didn't learn something new.

I gained unbelievable amounts of confidence during my time at camp and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to seek experience working in a child centred environment.

I fully intend on re-applying for easter and summer again this year with the hope that it will be just as fun as last season.

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.

The whole experience has been brilliant. The management team were really great, supportive, and created a really fun environment for us as well as the children. The best place I've ever worked (a sentiment echoed by a few of the team on our last day)!

I have just completed my 4th summer working for Barracudas. I started in 2014 as a group assistant and have worked every Easter and summer since. I progressed into the Early Years Coordinator role and as of this year became an Early Years Manager. In this time I’ve worked at two different camps and have thoroughly enjoyed working at both. Working for Barracudas has been really convenient for me, as I started just before I began training to become a Primary School Teacher, which meant I was able to work somewhere for the holidays, not only that I enjoy, but could gain a wealth of experience from. I have worked with a range of people, many that work with children outside of Barracudas also, but all have the same passion and enjoyment working with children. I’ve made some friends for life from working at camp! Going to work every day and being able to have fun with kids and act like a big kid yourself sometimes is a fun way to earn some money over the holidays. I’ve always been supported from when I started, whether it be by red shirts, blue shirts or by the area team or head office now I’m a blue shirt myself; Barracudas has really enhanced my professional development, especially in finding different ways to adapt activities to different children, behaviour management, and leadership skills, all which I can use away from camp. I would recommend working at Barracudas to anyone, but especially to those who would like a career working with children, the experience is invaluable!
