How your child will benefit from attending an activity day camp
Activity camps are a great option for meeting your childcare needs for a number of reasons, as well as being cost effective and flexible for working parents. But what’s more, children also stand to gain a whole host of long-term benefits that will stand them in good stead for years to come.
Self-esteem and confidence
Activity camps offer children the opportunity to try out new activities in a fun and relaxed environment. They may just find they have a particular skill or strength they didn’t know about previously, which will boost their confidence.
It will also help make them more confident in dealing with new situations, so they’ll be less likely to fear change in future.
By fostering an environment for healthy competition, activity camps give children the opportunity to build their resilience. We’re sure you’ll agree that’s a useful trait to help them face the challenges they’ll inevitably come across later in life.
Meeting a different set of people to their usual school friends, will help build their confidence for meeting new people. Being able to mix with different people is a valuable life skill that is often easier to pick up when you’re young.
If you have a shy child, you may be reluctant to send them to an activity camp but the camps like Barracudas see children of all temperaments have a great time. The staff appreciate that every child is different and they’ll do everything they can to make sure your child feels welcomed and settles in well.
New hobbies and experiences

At Barracudas, children can take part in activities including swimming, archery, motorsports, dance, drama, fun science, arts and crafts and much more.

They may even kindle a lifelong interest in a new hobby.
Outdoors & Exercise
There’s nothing better than heading outdoors – if the weather allows it! Spending time outdoors also has a range of benefits for mental and physical health.
We all know that children nowadays have a whole host of entertainment options they can enjoy while remaining pretty sedentary. But we know being active can help their long-term mental and physical health. That’s why activity camps like Barracudas help all children develop lifelong habits of being active.
There’s always a range of active games at Barracudas camps, and you don’t have to be sporty to enjoy. It’s all about having fun, so your child can choose to take part in a way they’re comfortable with. The exercise is an added bonus!
