Stubbers Adventure Centre offers a packed schedule of fun and games for all the family – right on your doorstep.

If you want to get away from it all this summer but don’t fancy travelling far, or you want to meet with friends for a weekend of something completely different, Stubbers may well have the answer.

The 130-acre Upminster site, which runs exciting, adrenaline-filled activities for all ages, is opening its campsite and centre to families who are looking for adventures this summer with our Adventure Weekends.

Whether it’s the only break you’re taking this year or it’s a sneaky extra weekend away, Stubbers will brighten up your August with a mix of friendly hospitality and those high-energy activities the centre is renowned for.

What’s more – visitors can look forward to a peaceful night’s rest thanks to Stubbers’ comfortable bunkhouse hire, which features 10 beds with proper mattresses for just £40 extra. Bunkhouse hire offers a great night’s sleep for the family after the events of the day, although other guests might choose to pitch their own tents and camp out under the stars.

Arriving on Friday evening, families receive a welcome meeting with the SMASH team before toasting marshmallows on the campfire.

The activities begin after breakfast on Saturday, where you can enjoy everything from paddle-boarding to raft-building and archery to commando camp assault courses. Perhaps you’d prefer a go on the high ropes or the chance to sail around the lake, while visitors are also able to head into the woods to learn how to make a shelter and build a fire.

On Sunday, why not try your hand at rifle shooting or return to the water for jet skiing or banana boating? After lunch, it’s home-time for a rest and, of course, reflection on a great weekend.

Ben Woodock, SMASH Director, says: “It’s so easy to get bogged down in the 9-5, Monday to Friday, and then spend the weekends trying to catch up on shopping, housework and homework.

“Spreading ourselves thinly like this and delving into our laptops, tablets or mobile phones at every opportunity is sadly a sign of 2018.

“This is why we launched our family and friends weekends, which give people the chance to turn their backs on their normal patterns of life and enjoy proper quality time with those they love.

“It might be one family of four who want to pitch their own tent, or maybe they want to meet up with friends they don’t see very often and hire one of our canvas bunkhouses. Regardless, we know we’ll help them to have a fantastic time.”

At just £50 per child and £70 per adult, Family Weekend Adventures at Stubbers offer excellent value for money without the stresses and strains of travelling afar.

Stubbers Adventure Centre is based on Ockendon Road in Upminster. The centre has been operational for more than 20 years and is set within 130 picturesque acres of Essex countryside. Instructors are highly qualified, experienced and dedicated to providing quality activities.
