About Little Canada

With plenty of activities to challenge and inspire, Little Canada activity adventure camp is an ideal destination for Brownies and Guides. Located on the Isle of Wight, just a few minutes from the Fishbourne ferry, it’s a beautiful centre set in stunning woodland on the banks of Wootton Creek.

At little Canada, there’s direct access to the water so it’s a great place to go for watersports. There are plenty of land-based activities too and an indoor swimming pool for groups to enjoy.

Groups are accommodated in en suite log cabins within the centre grounds and in Woodlands House, a Victorian house set in its own gardens.
