Multi award winning Narnu Farm has been operating popular school camps for well over 30 years. Located on picturesque Hindmarsh Island only 1-hour from the city we offer 1 and 2 night camp formats in comfortable Bunkhouse style accommodation.
We are excited to offer a choice of two educational programs for our 2-night camp in 2014.
Farm-themed School Camp
Our popular farm-themed school camp takes students back in time to the days of pioneer farming. Interactive educational fun and an up-close and personal experience not found anywhere else!
Activities include Horse riding, Hand Ploughing, Blacksmithing, Butter making, Vintage Truck Ride and Farm Animal feeding. This program also includes the popular Snake Talk with a professional Snake Handler.
Eco-theme School Camp
Our new eco-camp program launched in 2013 has undergone further development.
The program takes students on a scientific adventure in the unique River Murray environment through Water Watch, Aqua Bugs and Frog Watch activities. 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 our latest addition to the program ‘ Sustainable futures’ students learn about carbon foot print and sustainbility. 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!
School Camp Menus
Our school camp menu promotes healthy eating and ensures students have tasty and filling food to keep them on the go for the duration of their camp.
This menu embraces the Right Bite for schools policy and allows campers to make informed choices using the DECD guidelines. With our new dishwasher all dishes at meal times will be washed by our staff.
New Website and Curriculum links
We launched our brand new website in mid 2013. All the information you need is easy to find and located under SCHOOL CAMP section.
To save teachers time we have linked our activities to most up to date school curriculum. These educational resources allow students to the get maximum educational value from their school camp experience at Narnu Farm. Activity programs, menus, activity worksheets and maps are also available to download straight from our website.
Our staff hold current National Police Clearance Certificates , Catholic Police checks, First Aid Certificates and we have qualified Horse Riding Instructors through Horse Safety SA.
