What else will be at Camp Cornwall?

AWESOME FACILITIES

WE'VE COVERED ALL BASES

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 remaining as its focus. The facilities offered to guests at Camp Cornwall are based around children and youth groups, considering every element of a residential stay.

CAMP REPS

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.

NIGHT SUPPORT

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.

TOILET & SHOWER PROVISION

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 and gender-neutral facilities. Shower time is offered in our inside shower blocks and in outside showers… the latter being the more popular choice.  The quicker, the better, when it comes to showers, we tend to find!

THE STAGE

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.

NEW FOR 2024 – THE HUB

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.

NEW FOR 2024 – THE BOARDROOM

The Boardroom is a quiet, private space where children can go to phone or video call home. With our no-phones policy elsewhere on camp, this oasis of calm offers a relaxing environment where guests can take some time out and speak to loved ones.

NEW FOR 2024 – THE CRIB

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.

… and for those in need of transport to camp

We are delighted to announce that Camp Cornwall will now be running a new chaperone service to Porthpean!  For those arriving on a Sunday on a 5-Night Camp, a member of our team will meet you on the train at one of the appointed train stations.  Full details available on request.
