Inspiring in so many ways


Multiple challenges, personal triumphs, learning experiences, achievements.
Plus many exhilarating ways to have fun, of course. That’s multi-activity Adventure with The SHAC. Your Adventurers will learn to work together. They will support and encourage each other to succeed; find the courage to jump, to climb, and to take a leap of faith into the unknown.


The activities are about improving motivation, raising aspirations.
Strengthening friendships.
Growing.
Becoming more self-aware.

They’ll take home memories of a trip that made a difference.
The difference that will help young people become more engaged and motivated with the confidence they need to succeed.

Wet or dry, low or high?

We’ve got adventures on land and water;
challenges which draw on personal courage;
activities where you'll need a head for heights;
experiences to develop teamwork, cooperation and leadership.

All taught by instructors who love to inspire, challenge, build confidence, enable success and encourage development.

There’ll be four different activity sessions each day to keep everyone engaged.
Watch the thrill seekers on the zip wire, see who reaches the top of Jacob’s ladder first, help on a raft-building challenge.
At the end of the outdoor, action-packed day, there’s still more to look forward to. We run an evening programme – it’s the SHAC's way to unwind and round off the day.

From Archery to Canoeing, Sailing, Dragon boating Raft Building to Climbing, abseiling, giant swing etc we've got it covered for the perfect adventure holiday for you little adventurer.

This is set to be a Wet and Wild Adventure located on the Waters Front with access to a private creek for water sports as well as the beach only a short walk away.

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, making it ideal for watersports. A raft building or dragon boating session is a great way to promote teamwork, communication and leadership and they’re also lots of fun! There are plenty of land-based activities too; we’ve got climbing towers, abseil walls, zip wires – everything to excite, inspire and build confidence for your pupils.

 

This centre is also a perfect base for exploring the natural beauty of the Isle of Wight making the most of the stunning woodland setting and staying in cosy wooden lodges.

Hi Skip

Dylan had such a great time with you on The SHACs Big Adventure.  He’s slimmer, more confident and calmer!

Many thanks, Claire & Andy Newman

My nine year old son has just returned from SHAC’s Big Adventure. He spent five days away from home with no technology and has had the best time ever. I was a bit worried as this was his longest time away from home, but he was absolutely fine. The week was incredibly well run, action packed and Skip and his team looked after the children really well. My son described it as "really fun, exciting and really fun!”

Thanks again

A big thanks to both of you for creating such a wonderful adventure for the children. Sophie had an amazing time - I think we have a lived a minute by minute account of all the activities since she got back!!

Thank you also for the daily updates and photos. It really did make a difference as we could see how happy the children were and what they were up to and that was wonderfully reassuring.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer holidays.

Dear Scott and Julie,

Thank you so much for taking the SHAC group to PGL at Windmill Hill. It sounds like Hannah had a brilliant time. Apparently, it was her best ever PGL trip and she is enjoying telling us her memories. It has been great to see your photo updates whilst they were away.

Thanks again and I hope you are enjoying a more relaxing weekend.
