About the Centre

The centre is ideally situated to the North East of London where the suburbs become greenbelt countryside. The 370 bus stops right outside the main gate. The M25 is a mere 5 minutes’ drive away (junction 29) and the Dartford crossing 15 minutes’ drive.

Since 1996 Stubbers has been an independent centre set up as a not for profit company with charity status.

The centre covers 130 acres of green belt land and has been landscaped specifically for the purpose of outdoor pursuits. We are able to deliver a full multi activity programme without needing to go off site. We have a residential building that accommodates 48 clients. In the summer up to 230 adventurers can be accommodated in camping villages.

Activity areas

The activity facilities at the centre include two 22-acre lakes for sailing and motor sports with a smaller lake for paddle sport training. Water based activities include Jet ski driving, Sailing, Stand up paddle boarding and Bell Boats. Towers activities include two outdoor climbing walls and a variety of roped activities. Land based activities include All Terrain Boarding and Laser Tag and finally our Motor sports activities include 4x4 dual control Land Rover Discovery's and Quad biking.


Schools and Youth organisations comprise the main body of our adventurers and in the holidays there are activity camps, which are very popular with the local children. We provide programmes for special need groups including children with behavioural difficulties. The centre also provides outdoor development programmes and fun events for adults and companies too.


Further to the training provided staff are welcome to take up spare places on National Governing Body courses that take place at the centre.

There will also be opportunities for working with challenging young people, special needs groups, adult groups and on team building programmes.

Your normal hours of work are from 0830 until 1700 on a rota basis Monday to Sunday with a 45 minute break for lunch.  The working rota is published one month in advance and includes working weeks of 5 and 6 days. During each month there is an evening overtime expectation as part of the “Duty Watch” proving evening activities for our residential groups over 7 evenings split over the month. During May to August this may increase to 6 days per week to cover our peak season. Please note that during quieter weeks your working hours may reduce to 4 working days per week.


Holiday is granted at the statutory rate. Although it is unlikely that Seasonal staff can take long periods of leave during the months of June, July and August it may be possible to take occasional holidays to coincide with days off.


Accommodation is available on site; rent covers all costs other than food. Staff provide their own bedding. Accommodation may be mixed sex. All buildings including staff accommodation are non-smoking. Pets are not permitted.
