At Narnu Farm we pride ourselves on providing a special school camp experience like no other. With over 35 years experience and the recipient of multiple state and national tourism awards you can be assured your school camp experience will be highly educational, safe and fun! An environment where students can learn through doing, gaining valuable life skills and independence and making memories that last a life time.
Located on picturesque Hindmarsh Island only one hour from the city we offer 1 and 2 night camp formats in comfortable bunkhouse style accommodation on 32 hectares of island paradise. Camps can be fully catered with a healthy menu based on the “Right Bite” school guidelines to keep the students satisfied. Self catering can also be accommodated.
FARM SCHOOL CAMP
Available in both 1 night and 2 night formats our popular farm-themed school camp takes students back in time to the days of pioneer farming. Interactive, educational, fun, a up-close and personal experience not found anywhere else!
Students are outside in the fresh air interacting with and feeding our friendly farm animals, riding horses, hand ploughing with a huge Clydesdale, riding on a vintage truck, learning how a horse shoe is made in the blacksmith shop as well as the age-old art of butter making.
ENVIRONMENTAL SCHOOL CAMP
Narnu Farm is located on the shores of the mighty River Murray so what better place for students to discover and learn about our unique river environment? Students will immerse themselves in activities such as Water Watch, Aqua Bugs and Frog Watch.
The program also includes a visit from ‘Animals Anonymous’ with friendly Australian Native animals including a baby crocodile, python, goanna, gecko, bearded dragon, bettong, squirrel glider, dunnarts, spiders and birds.
In the latest addition to the program our environmental trail takes students around the farm to see and learn first hand how Narnu is helping to create a sustainable future through solar panels, tree planting, recycling, water catching and finally ends with some wormy fun! Very educational and hands on!
We knew we couldn’t leave out the most popular activity on the farm so students will also be able to ride a horse!
Narnu Farm is only a short walk from the river and the perfect location for your summer aquatic camp. Ideal for upper primary and high school students our aquatic camp program can be tailored to your needs. We can collaborate with Victor Harbor Aquatics to provide activities such as sailing, small boat handling, windsurfing, kayaking, body boarding and fishing.
‘GET TO KNOW YOU’ CAMP
Ideal for start of year class ‘bonding’ camps, Narnu Farm can provide the venue and catering if required. We can provide a full activity program or you can use the venue to run your own activities. Either way, students and teachers will enjoy the special atmosphere that Narnu has to offer.
WEEKEND/ SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN!
Narnu Farm is the place for kids. Our variety of accommodation options including cottages and the bunkhouse is complemented by wide open spaces, horses and baby animals providing a contrasting fun-filled getaway for families and kids from the city who haven’t experienced country life. They all get involved in a host of activities, “down ‘n’ dirty” in the special atmosphere of Narnu Farm……. Kids just love it!
