Summer at Barracudas Activity Day Camps

L spent 4 days of his first week off school with the guys and girls (and fish) of Barracudas in Norwich. He went with his best friend and had a blast.

I’ve already spoken about how much he enjoyed it when he went at Easter, and how helpful I’ve found it as a childcare solution. I’ve worried about what to do as a first time attendee/parent at the camp.

Dealing with the Summer Holidays

Well that’s one week of the final half term of school done and dusted, only five weeks of school left. If you’re a working parent like me you’ll already be planning for the long six week break of summer.

I’m ridiculously lucky at my work and have been able to book most of the break off as annual leave. I’ve had to rope the inlaws in for a few days and obviously my husband can take time off as well. However, despite that I’ve still had one week left to cover and only having one week makes me one of the lucky ones! Most of my friends are at their wits end trying to make it all work.

Our First Experience of Barracudas Day Activity Camp – Norwich

L spent the first two days of his Easter Break at Barracudas Day Activity Camp in Norwich with his best mate. I was so happy to get to work with them this year, and despite being super organised about it, I would be lying if I said I had no concerns. Well now he has been and I am delighted, truly delighted. So I thought I’d share a little bit about our experience.

Barracudas First Time Checklist

It’s not long until L and his friend get to check out the fun packed activities on offer at Barracudas Day Activity Camps. I’m so happy to be sending him and couldn’t be more excited to get to work with such a fun loving, child focused company.

Feeling Calm

We’ve never been before so I am obviously a bit nervous. What to bring, what to do, what to expect? It’s all new to me. So I’ve created a checklist of things to do before we go and I thought other parents in the same boat may find it useful.

Barracudas Activity Day Camps

So we’re half way through the February Half Term and if you are anything like me managing a week off work is doable but the thought of the two week Easter Break and the Summer holidays on top of a job is worrisome to say the least.

This year I’m working as a Brand Ambassador for Barracudas and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you all.

#SuperSummerMissions -Coming to an End

We’ve had a great time as Super Wings Brand Ambassadors and since our last update completed all of the #SuperSummerMissions.
