Cornwall Outdoors closed our doors for the final time on 31st July 2022. The staff of each of the Centres would like to thank the leaders and visiting students for the fun and enjoyment that you gave shared over the decades.


Cornwall Outdoors residential activity CentresEvery year thousands of students and group members pass through our doors to undertake their adventures. The setting and location for each of our centres has been carefully chosen to take advantage of all that Cornwall has to offer.

Our activity centres comprise three outdoor education Centres, Carnyorth and Delaware provide a year-round residential experience and Porthpean provides a series of seasonal tented villages through the spring, summer and Autumn.

To round off our Cornwall and Isles of Scilly outdoor experience we run a summer camp at PelistrySt Mary's, Isles of Scilly.

Whether you are looking for a fully-catered outdoor education experience or a self-catered self-guided experience then we have the venue, location and products to ensure that you get the best from your stay.

Who can book our Centres?

Porthpean residential tented village and activity CentreIn addition to our school provision we are always pleased to hear from any social/family groups that may be looking for that little bit more space that you get with large residential centres.

We are happy to take enquiries from anyone needing some time and space away from their normal environment to enjoy a new part of the world with people they want to share adventures with. Please browse the Centres pages (above) or download our Cornwall Outdoors Brochure.

Our Residential Centres Adventurous Side


Each of our year-round residential Centres provide adventurous activities in their local environments from Canoeing to Coasteering, or Mountain Biking to Rock Climbing. Each Centre is a holder of their own independently assessed AALS Licence and a team of highly qualified staff to deliver your bespoke activity programme.

If you don't need a residential experience but would like to participate in one of our adventurous activities then we offer a mobile-activity service to anyone that would like to take their group into the wider outdoors. Alternatively, please browse our Centre's experience pages to see the local outdoor activities available.

Leadership Training Courses

Each Centre can also provide training and experiences for adults wanting to extend their learning in leadership skills and adventurous sports. Browse our extensive list of training courses in the top navigation bar of this site or contact our administration team to be put onto the course you need.
