Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre is Cornwall’s leading outdoor activity centre.  Set overlooking the stunning Cornish south coast, we offer the complete residential activity-led package with our own beach, on-site accommodation, full catering, and a world of adventures geared especially for children and groups.

Specialising in fun-filled residential packages for schools and outdoor education programmes, we aim to challenge and delight our adventurers with a broad array of instructor-led outdoor activities, both on land and ocean-based.  Get involved and make a splash at our beach with kayaking, coasteering, and stand-up paddleboarding or test yourself at the centre with our high ropes course, climbing wall, target sports range, and laser tag battle ground.

Our unique set up, with super-flexible accommodation and fantastic on-site facilities, means we are perfectly positioned to effortlessly extend our offering to children looking for a summer camp experience during the school holidays with the awesome Camp Cornwall.


Thanks to our amazing location on the south coast of Cornwall, we’re able to offer a wide range of land and ocean activities, from both our centre and our beach.
