One of the most iconic venues in Cornwall we go afloat on Mounts Bay launching from Newlyn. There are canoes and kayaks for everyone to paddle and plenty to do and see along the coast between Penzance and Mousehole. This activity is weather dependent.

Enjoy fun and games in canoe and kayaks.  Learn new skills and have fun afloat.


Build and cruise your own Coracle

For many years people have been building these simple but sturdy boats. In teams learn how to build a coracle and paddle it on a spring fed pool on the moors.



Orienteering is a sport that teaches navigational skills using a map to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain. Participants are given a topographical map, usually a specially prepared orienteering map, which after some introductory tuition they use to find control points. At Carnyorth we have various orienteering courses that utilise the stunning and historic west Cornwall landscape and we can tailor make the difficulty level to suit any group.


Climb our mobile climbing wall for a fun exciting challenge.  Starting with easy routes build your confidence as the difficulty increases.  in clement weather climb the indoor climbing wall.  Create a group 'metres' tally chart to see how high the group can reach.



Learn the ancient skill of Archery to develop concentration skills and manual dexterity in individuals of all abilities.

Mountain Biking

A variety of biking challenges on our mountain bikes. A wonderful mix of fitness, education and thrills await everyone regardless of experience.


Miners Cluedo

The World Heritage St Just Tin mining area sets the scene for a large-scale game of Cluedo! There has been a murdered miner and through the use of various props the children have to establish ‘whodunit’, with what and where by visiting different parts of the magnificent mining landscape adjacent to the coast.


Search and Rescue

The group organise a search over a part of the moor for a missing pilot. Once the pilot has been found the group will have to organise the rescue. A great exercise using team work and communication skills.
