About Little Canada

With plenty of activities to challenge and inspire, Little Canada 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. There’s direct access to the water so it’s a great for watersports and there are plenty of land-based activities to enjoy as well.

When the weather’s not ideal, there's a sports hall and an indoor activity zone for some lively team games. Groups are accommodated in en suite log cabins in the centre grounds and in Woodlands House, a Victorian house set in its own gardens.
