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.

Having used Cornwall Outdoors for the last 23 years I can say, with confidence, that the quality has always been good but still continues to improve.
Ian Bruce Headteacher Rosemellin School
As soon as we advertise one of Cornwall Outdoors Residentials we are immediately oversubscribed. That speaks volumes for Cornwall Outdoors!
Tim Rice Teacher at Rosemellin School
Cornwall Outdoors provides our teachers with the confidence to encourage children to enjoy Outdoor Learning.
Penny Shilston Headteacher Archbishop Benson CE Primary School
Cornwall Outdoors offers safe, exciting opportunities that are excellent value for money. I really recommend them.
Helen Collinge Headteacher Treleigh Community Primary School
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.
Gary Wheildon Senior Tutor for Sport St Austell College
When you leave Cornwall to work in another authority and want to do some Outdoor Education it is then that you realise “What a Jewel in the Crown” to schools Cornwall Outdoors really is.
Mark Lees Headteacher Threemilestone School
Cornwall Outdoors is always willing and able to tailor the experiences to meet the needs of the school.
Having used Cornwall Outdoors for 20 years I can say that I have never been disappointed. I do have total trust and confidence in the service that Cornwall Outdoors provides. Nothing is too much trouble.
For residential visits Cornwall Outdoors has thought of everything!
Cornwall Outdoors provides our children with a range of memorable experiences, delivered by well qualified and friendly staff in a risk assessed environment. We know it is these experiences that our children will take away with them and remember forever.
The strength of Cornwall Outdoors is that it offers a flexible and personalised response to meet the needs of the school.
“A brilliant day. The school grounds setting was perfect” - “I loved this training day. It has reignited the fire! Great cross curricular links”
"Excellent activities and fun hands on learning”
“All the minimal equipment activities were very useful to get the children talking and listening – excellent day, thank you so much” - “Finding clay nest and making piskie activity had great scope for literacy outdoors”
All the activities were challenging and I learnt lots of new skills.
Roseland Camp is brilliant, excellent and very very fun
All the activities were amazingly good fun.
I was so delighted, I can’t wait for next year.
The best week of the year with the climbing, canoeing and archery. Just can’t wait until next year.
Every single second of the activities were amazing.
It was so fantastic I want to come next year.
I love Roseland Camp, it was amazing!
It was amazing. The best camp I’ve ever been to!
School camp was fantastic especially when I learnt how to turn a corner.
Roseland was really epic, I really like archery.
Alex, one of our instructors made us laugh by wearing a pink hat and carrying a giant pencil.
"Staff were great with the younger children giving them an excellent experience"
"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"
"Always good for further updates and learning experiences from other first aiders and instructors – eg safe airway position keeping spine aligned"
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

"Coming down to Porthpean is for us one of the best weeks of the school year" - Liskeard School
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
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!
Tina Turuelo (Mrs), Brannel School
