SMASH the Summer Holidays with Stubbers!

Six weeks of school holidays are just around the corner, and keeping the kids happy and entertained is a task every parent will know only too well.

Luckily enough, Stubbers Adventure Centre have the perfect solution in the form of their Summer SMASH Camps programme.

Designed for children between the ages of six and 17, SMASH Camps offer an action-packed range of activities all summer long at their popular Upminster location. So whether your child likes tackling assault courses or taking to the high ropes, trying something new like abseiling or whizzing round on a quad bike – there will be an activity for them.


SMASH Camps are a huge hit with younger kids, who love the chance to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in to a day full of adventure. Discoverers (for school years 2 and 3) can try their hand at a variety of outdoor activities like archery and sailing, while there are also indoor fun zones and chill out areas for the little ones to relax on a mountain of bean bags if all the excitement gets too much! Naturally, SMASH Camps is also a fantastic place for kids to make new friends.

The little Discoverers are supervised at all times by enthusiastic and energetic staff members, with no more than 10 children assigned to one instructor. Each SMASH Camps supervisor has been first aid-trained and DBS-checked, so you can rest assured that your kids are finding new hobbies and expressing themselves whilst in safe hands.

The kids will likely be having so much fun that they might even want to stay for a summer sleepover – a service SMASH Camps can also provide.

Discoverer Sleep Overs offer little ones the chance to enjoy the great outdoors in a safe, fun atmosphere. An overnight stay includes a full first day of activities, before the kids grab their bags and head into the woods to cook dinner, toast marshmallows and sing songs around the camp fire – all fully supervised, of course. The next day, Discoverers get a healthy breakfast and another full day of activities and adventure to enjoy – and lunch is also included.

SMASH A.I.R (All Inclusive Residential)

Stubbers now offer an all-inclusive residential week, SMASH AIR, where children play in the day and stay in large, canvas bunk houses that come complete with comfy bunk beds on raised, carpeted platforms. All meals are included and there’s entertainment right up until bedtime.

SMASH Camps have no hidden costs and offer free early and late pick-up to suit your schedule. And if you need to cancel at the last minute? It’s no bother at all: SMASH Camps offer a full refund.

For kids in school years four to 11, the activities are ramped up a notch. Adventurers can enjoy longer sessions that help develop new skills, all the while enjoying a programme that features jet-skiing, paddle-boarding, climbing, laser tag and much more. There’s even the chance to catch a movie, play table tennis or get creative at arts and crafts sessions before it’s time to head home.

Ben Woodcock, director of SMASH Camps, says: “Although it’s great that the children get to have a long break from learning at school, most parents dread the summer holidays because it means one thing – bored kids!

“So why not treat them to the time of their lives with us?

“What could be more fun for kids than spending an adventure filled week with their friends, developing new skills or learning a new activity, while taking in the wonderful outdoors?

“We keep the children so busy, whether they’re here for just a day or the full week, that there is certainly going to be no time for boredom.

“We believe what we offer is something really quite special. We don’t just let children abseil down a tower once or twice and have a quick go on the high ropes before shipping them back home. Instead, we are proud to offer a unique blend of friendship, fun and the opportunity to learn while keeping each child entertained every moment they’re with us.”
