About Little Canada

With its woodland log cabins on the banks of Wootton Creek, it’s easy to see how Little Canada adventure centre got its name. This beautiful venue has private access to the water for dragon boating, while canoeing, kayaking and keelboat sailing take place at a nearby beach.

There are plenty of land-based activities too and plenty of facilities to keep your group active and engaged. Little Canada is perfect for your next primary school residential trip.
