Dive Project Cornwall Campsite

What to expect from camping

Dive Project Cornwall have created a home away from home. The campsite is situated on the top of the hill overlooking Falmouth bay with sweeping coastal views. It’s a truly beautiful place to be, but being on a cliff it can get breezy – and very wet when it rains!


There will be four or five 8 person tents for the students with 4 – 6 students per tent. Dive Project Cornwall recommends that there are 5 students per tent if ratios allow. Teachers will allocate students to tents. Dive Project Cornwall will be providing thick comfortable sleeping mats and sleeping bags. Of course, students may bring their own sleeping bags if they prefer.


Dive Project Cornwall will be providing breakfast, lunch and dinner during the entire stay. Typically it will look like this:

A buffet of cereals, toast with jams and spreads, fruit.

Sandwiches, crisps, cereal bars, fruit, cakes.

Hot meals such as pasta, barbecue food.

We will cater for allergies and dietary requirements according to the details provided in the Participation Form.

Camp hygiene


There are showers at Porthkerris Dive Centre by the beach. They are operated by £1 coins, which gives you an 8 minute hot shower. After a day’s diving, a hot shower is just the job!


There are portaloos in our campsite and there are also two toilet blocks at Porthkerris Dive Centre by the beach.


Students may bring mobile phones, but the signal can be poor and charging facilities are very limited. Last year we took all phones into safekeeping at 1930 every night. This allowed our young divers to socialise away from their phones, and also allowed staff to manage the staged charging of devices. We will be implementing a similar ‘offline after 1930’ policy for 2025.
