Urban adventures at Grosvenor Hall

Urban Adventurers at Grosvenor Hall will be treated to some of Europe’s finest activity facilities. This hidden gem is set in the grounds of a former manor house in Ashford, Kent. From the moment our visitors enter the gates, they are immersed in a combination of historical buildings, modern facilities and a state of the art £1m adventure park.

The site is within easy reach of London and international transport links, but while exciting excursions to London, Brighton, and Canterbury add to the Urban Adventure, Grosvenor Hall itself has 50 acres of activity and recreational facilities.

The high-adrenaline excitement of the adventure park includes a triple zipwire, 3G swing, double fan descender and the amazing Skyclimb ropes course. Indoor activities are catered for with an indoor heated swimming pool, a huge 25,000 sq ft sports hall for all sorts of activities and sports, plus a Blu-ray cinema and a brand new lake for watersports!

Our largest centre, Grosvenor Hall is perfect for older individuals looking for a taste of independence.

Adventures for all ages

At Kingswood Camps, our visitors are put into groups of similar ages, meaning siblings of different ages can meet new friends during the day, but have the reassurance of seeing a familiar face from time to time at meal times and during certain activities.

Whichever location, activity or excursion your child has chosen, we want to ensure that our young visitors are always having fun and are confident to try new challenges. That’s why each camps is split into different age groups; it allows us to tailor our activities to the perfect level for each group.

Each group has a dedicated camp coach, who acts like a big brother or sister to provide friendly support, gentle encouragement, safe supervision and a fair few laughs. It’s all part of ensuring everyone has as much fun as possible with their new friends, backed up by great support from someone who’s looking out for them.

11-14 year olds

We give young people and early teens the opportunity to embrace every aspect of camp life, from sharing dorms to scaling climbing towers, developing valuable life skills and building self-esteem, whilst making new friends from over 75 countries around the world. Our team gently encourage them to push their boundaries and try exciting new adventures.

15-17 year olds

We know that older teens are looking for independence and adventure in the summer holidays. That’s why our camps provide a place for adrenaline junkies and fun-lovers to experience extreme challenges and enjoy a fantastic selection of evening entertainment, while chilling out with new friends and enjoying a greater sense of freedom.

Sleeping and eating

At the end of a long day of activities, it’s back to the dorms for a good night’s rest. The dorms at Grosvenor Hall sleep 2-8 people with an en-suite or shared bathroom. You’ll share a room with other young people of the same age group and gender.

Although we arrange rooming based on age group, it may be possible to arrange for siblings of the same gender to share a room on request  (this cannot be guaranteed). Please note that it is not possible for brothers and sisters to share a room as all accommodation is split by gender.

In our canteen, we serve three hot meals per day, with lots of choice and seasonal variations. Each day there is a carefully balanced and nutritional meal plan. We can accommodate most special dietary needs, please let us know requirements at the time of booking.
