What will students see and do?
Located in Upminster, Stubbers Adventure Centre offers one of the biggest variety of adventure activities in the south east. Each year, it welcomes over 40,000 thrill-seekers of all ages through the doors of its 130-acre site, inviting them to participate in exciting activities on its three lakes, giant adventure playgrounds, large climbing towers, discovery trails filled with surprises, den-building areas and more.
Plus, as a non-profit charity, the money the centre makes goes straight back into its charitable work, meaning that by choosing to visit Stubbers Adventure Centre, you’re helping to bring even more outdoor adventures to youth organisations and schools.
The site encourages visitors to step out of their comfort zone and into a world of adventure, with 35+ extraordinary activities across the land, air and water. Feel the wind in your hair and the water on your skin with watersports like windsurfing, sailing, Kata Kanu, kayaking, jet-skiing, open canoeing and paddleboarding.
Alternatively, get your heart pumping and embrace the thrill of something new with archery, axe throwing, wall climbing, quad biking and air rifle shooting.
You can even team up with friends and make awesome memories with boot camp, bushcraft, orienteering, challenge courses and team-building events.
