Brief history of Little Canada

 

Little Canada was first opened on the Isle of Wight in 1930 by a New Zealander named Mr Howarth. It was set in 48 acres of wooded land and was built to resemble a miniature Canadian village complete with 250 log cabin chalets.

It was used during the war as an army base and was subsequently taken over by the Polytechnic Touring Association who reopened it as a holiday camp in 1949. It was acquired by Fred Pontin in the 1950s but not transferred to Pontins Ltd until 1962.

It was sold in 1994 and the camp is still open today as a PGL children's activity centre and still looks much the same as it always did.
