Julie Lamb

Visiting Delaware was a fantastic experience for all our staff and children. There was a huge range of activities to challenge our children and so many opportunities to raise their self-esteem, develop their independence and improve their problem solving skills.

As soon as we advertise one of Cornwall Outdoors Residentials we are immediately oversubscribed. That speaks volumes for Cornwall Outdoors!

Gary Wheildon

I hope you don’t mind me clogging up your inbox but I just wanted to say a quick thanks to you and Paul for the weekend. I’ve been on loads of training events over the years, some good and some not so good, but this one stands out as excellent in every aspect. Aside from the highly enjoyable and relevant course content, the delivery was outstanding. As a teacher I’m always keen to pick up on new techniques to apply to my own practice. I have come away from the weekend buzzing about a new set of skills to use and develop, but also with a fresh perspective on my own teaching style thanks to you and Paul.

It really was excellent and shouldn’t go without mention.

"Staff were great with the younger children giving them an excellent experience"

St Uny - Delaware

"Each year the Delaware experience is even better than the previous year. We had nothing but positive comments from all the children and parents. The new activities in the day room were an excellent way of many children enjoying time in the day room rather than being in the dormitories"

Martin - Torpoint Nursery and Infant School

"Always good for further updates and learning experiences from other first aiders and instructors – eg safe airway position keeping spine aligned"

Assistant Headteacher, East Cornwall

Without Delaware and the other Cornwall Outdoor Centres, small schools such as ours would be unable to offer their pupils such valuable and high quality outdoor centre education.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and keep up the good work. Assistant Headteacher, East Cornwall

Well what can I say other than a massive thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into the residentials, I have been reviewing the presentations and it is clear that it was a resounding success this is down to the hard work and total professionalism of your staff. The Delaware experience for me was breathtakingly brilliant.  The journeys our young people went on were phenomenal, for us at the college the hard work now starts in making sure that the learning is entrenched. -  Mat Mitcheson - Launceston College

Brannel School

I just wanted to drop you a line to formally thank you for a fantastic camp experience.

Whilst all of the activities were individually of huge benefit to our students,  overall I think that our students benefitted most from having the same group of instructors who built an amazing set of supportive relationships with them and encouraged and challenged them to exceed their personal expectations right up to the last minute of the last activity!

On behalf of them all and of the staff who also had a great time - thank you!
