Camping at Cardinney Camp Site

Cardinney Camp site are great supporters of the Kernow Dive Festival and the new owners are welcoming us to hold our dive festival again!  See you there on the Thursday evening!  This year, camping will be £6 per head per night – arrange via your club who will collect the money.

Changes to the camp site this year is there will be no restaurant.  We will have the marquee up a day earlier for social gathering.  Instead, the camp shop will have a wide variety of groceries and beer and will have a microwave on hand for anyone wanting to cook meals.

What’s the Itinerary?

We meet on the Thursday evening (6th June) at Cardinney Camp Site (special rates for divers!).  Friday 7th June will be the D Day sites.  On Friday 7th June at 21.00 hrs  we will have a safety meeting in the marquee for the main diving which will be on Saturday 9th.  Club RIBs go to pre marked sites, launching early  on the Saturday at Penzance Harbour and we have a great time diving!  Everything is organised according to the dive selections you make on your booking forms.  Saturday evening we have a massive BBQ organised by one of the local clubs and then we have fund raising raffles and auctions!

Sunday 10th June – more diving for those who are able to do so!

What does it cost?   £25 per head for the Saturday & Sunday or £35 per head if you are diving for the 3 days (Friday to Sunday).

What does this cover?  Your diving and your BBQ!  Fuel is reimbursed for all club boats used at the festival on the Saturday – the costs of the BBQ and our minimal organisational expenses.  Over the years, we have raised many thousands of pounds for DDRC.  Many local companies provide some great auction prizes and we accept postal bids as well!!

Safety.  All diving within the BSAC Safe Diving Guidelines – Your dive choicSONY DSCes must be within your qualification and experience and this is confirmed on the booking form by your own branch diving officer.
