Duo of Awards for Stubbers!

Essex Mums Winners




We are thrilled to be celebrating a double success, scooping two awards in the Essex Mums Awards 2017 – ‘Best Camp’ and ‘Best out-of- school hours childcare/club’. We have won ‘Best Camp’ for a second year and are honoured to win ‘Best out-of- school hours childcare/club’ for the first time!

The accolades mark the hard work and dedication of our team in growing SMASH Camps at Stubbers Adventure Centre, which has now been running for 6 years (previously known as HAD which ran from 1996-2011).

Ben Woodcock, SMASH Camps Director, said “We would like to start by saying a big thank you to all of our supporters for voting for us and helping us to win this award – it is a huge honour!’

SMASH Camps has grown over the years, opening their doors to younger school children and offering a variety of different activity packages to suit different tastes. Day activity camps are a great introduction to SMASH Camps with multi-week activity camps offering a variety of activities throughout the week. SMASH A.I.R (all-inclusive residential) Camps have become increasingly popular over the years and offer a real adventure holiday for SMASH Campers.

‘We have worked tirelessly over the last few years to give our guests the best possible day, and in that time we have been able to fine tune our offerings to deliver a fun and affordable experience. This summer has been our best ever with an average of 250 SMASH Campers per day. I am very proud of our team that have all helped us to get to this point!’

Look out for October SMASH Camps which offer a Halloween themed adventure week plus the popular Halloween Trail of Terror!
