Home Latest Deals Barracudas

Barracudas is the UK’s largest operator of activity day camps providing the highest quality in care and enrichment for children aged between 4.5 years and 14 years old.

The business has grown significantly since the opening of its first camp over 25 years ago and now cares for over 30,000 children every year across 42 locations.

The investment will allow founder and Managing Director Neil Greatorex and the Management Team to accelerate growth through increasing national footprint giving more parents and children access to one of the UK’s leading childcare providers.

We’ve enjoyed the process and feel that the deal works well for all parties.

We feel confident about future growth and development under this structure, it offers opportunities for key staff and at a personal level feels both right and timely. The BCF team have shown rigour and discipline but have been personable and reasonable throughout. At a board level I expect the investors to add significant value."

I enjoyed working with Neil and the Management Team and they must be congratulated on building an exceptional business.

This deal again emphasises the quality of businesses we have here in the East Midlands/East of England and I look forward to witnessing the continued growth of Barracudas over the coming years."

“We were delighted to support the transaction and, having reviewed the proposal and met the people behind it, we were quick to deliver full credit approval helping towards a timely completion.

We look forward to seeing this business succeed and grow further in the years to come”.
