Teacher Information Pack
Thank you for booking your school camp at Narnu Farm.
We have developed the following information pack to ensure your camp runs as smoothly as possible. We have also provided a checklist to ensure everything is organised.
Camp Confirmation Form
Please ensure the Camp Confirmation Form is filled in and sent to us at LEAST 2 WEEKS prior to your camp.
This ensures we can adequately roster staff and order catering requirements for your camp.
Please download and print copies of the program appropriate to your numbers prior to coming on camp.
Students must be split into even groups.
Narnu Farm staff conduct all catering and most programmed farm activities with the exception of the Farm History Trail, sports including tennis or table tennis, the designated School Activity and general free time. School staff will need to supervise these activities.
