  • Adventure Holidays at Little Canada

Little Canada, the home of Aqua Explorer!

Set in 48 acres of woodland on the banks of Wootton Creek, and with log cabin style accommodation, it would be easy to confuse Little Canada with the country from which it draws inspiration. Locations don’t come much better than this and we also have private access direct to the water from our seafront.

During a Multi Activity holiday at Little Canada you can expect to experience one or two of our amazing watersports activities however if you really want to make the best of this location then why not try our Aqua Explorer holiday?

Available at Little Canada in 2024: 3, 4 & 7 night Multi-Activity CampsAqua Explorer Specialist Camp.

Wondering how to get there? During the summer our escorted travel service offers station transfers at Portsmouth and Southampton from just £70pp (return) and coach travel with collection points across the UK from just £200pp (return). Find out more here.



Accommodation at Little Canada is in 4-8 bunk bedded rooms in chalet style lodges. Each lodge has its own en-suite bathroom facilities.


Located by Wootton Creek PGL Little Canada benefits from a tranquil atmosphere. There is plenty of green space around our purpose-built activity bases for free time fun and games.

As well as our outdoor areas Little Canada also has plenty of flexible indoor spaces - our sports hall even has an indoor climbing wall and is home to a Little Canada exclusive activity 'The Matrix'!

Fuel for adventure
To keep your children energised for their active PGL break our catering teams work hard to produce a menu jam-packed with nutritious family-friendly favourites to suit all appetites. This year we have made some improvements to bring you our best menu yet! View our sample menu here.

  • The PGL breakfast - hot options, cereals, toast, yoghurts, pastries & more!
  • Lighter tastier lunches - a pit-stop to prepare for a busy afternoon. Refuel with fresh sandwiches, soups, pasta or salads.
  • Delicious 'kids favourites' evening meals - crowd pleasing classics such as fish & chips, roast dinners and bangers & mash.

Our buffet style dining room means that children can ‘mix and match’ the items they love most and have unlimited access to our salad bar and fresh fruit. Our Group leaders are on hand to help and will look out for anyone who can’t find anything on the menu that they enjoy. If necessary our catering teams will be more than happy to prepare something special.

Allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements
A vegetarian alternative can always be provided on all our holidays, and we can accommodate most special diets required on medical or religious grounds, just let us know when you book.

Keeping hydrated
Water, squash, tea and coffee are available with all meals and children are encouraged to refill their water bottles for regular use throughout the day. There are also water fountains available around the centre.
