Established in the 1940s, the centre at Porthpean Outdoor, home to Camp Cornwall, is regarded as the home of outdoor adventure in Cornwall.
The centre has stayed true to its roots, with adventurous activities and children as its focus. The facilities offered to guests of Camp Cornwall are based around the needs of children and youth groups, considering every element of a residential stay.
Each group will have their own designated Camp Rep. Camp Reps are specially selected for this important role to ensure all children feel supported, listened to, and happy during their time at camp. The Camp Rep will send you, as a parent(s), a brief video message on Day 1 of your child’s stay to introduce themselves and add some comfort as your child embarks on their week with us.
At Camp Cornwall, we offer around-the-clock, 24-hour support. This includes a dedicated overnight manager; help at hand when needed, no matter the time of night.
Safeguarding is at the heart of how we operate at the centre. We offer private and separate facilities for boys, girls, male staff, and female staff, plus dedicated accessible facilities. Shower time is offered in timed blocks to your child’s group ensuring as little waiting around as possible.
The Stage, based in the heart of the Camping Villages, has two main functions. It is here your children will be introduced to Camp Cornwall and our friendly team with our Welcome Meeting. At night, the Stage comes alive with evening performances to entertain our resident guests.
At the epicentre of Camp Cornwall you will find the Hub. The Hub functions as a dining venue and entertainment space. Akin to a function venue, one minute you’ll be sitting down enjoying a meal, the next (after a quick turnaround), you’ll be throwing some moves at our silent disco.
The Boardroom is a quiet, private space where children can go to phone or video call home. With our no-phones policy on camp, this oasis of calm offers a relaxing environment where guests can take some time out and speak to loved ones.
The Crib, named after the Cornish slang for snack time, is our on-site tuck shop, offering a small selection of drinks, snacks, and merchandise for sale.
Your Cornish adventure starts here… school residentials, activity days and summer camps...
