Narnu Farm Camp 2006, Hindmarsh Island

Wednesday 6th September - Sunday 10th September 2006

Please email me (Beverley) if you wish to reserve accomodation. There is a $15 booking fee, refundable until August 1st 2006.

We will be staying in the Bunkhouse, which sleeps 54 in eight rooms with showers and toilets near by. There are also several cottages that can be rented for the camp as well, if you prefer this option.

Sleeping in the Bunkhouse will cost:
$17 per person per night ($12 children under 6, children under 2 are free)
with a cleaning fee of $95

Free supervised animal feeding and cow milking.
BBQ facilities, 1/2 court tennis, and table tennis are free.
Blacksmithing, Hand Ploughing, Butter Making, and Vintage Truck Farm Tour $2 per person (minimum numbers apply)
Pony rides $10 per person minimum age 3 for 1/4 hour
Horse rides from $18 per person 1/2 hour trail ride minimum age 5
Riding lesson $30 per person (include trail ride) minimum age 5
Scenic Trail Ride $32 per person 1 hour minimum age 13
DVD Home Entertainment Theatre $20 per night

Situated on Hindmarsh Island overlooking the Murray River, five minutes from Goolwa. If we're interested in educational excursions we can visit the Signal Point Museum, Barrages plus Goolwa historic/heritage township and Museum. Water sports would be one possible activity. A car trip to see the mouth of the Murray is another. Or we can totally focus on the farm stay theme and develop educational activities around this.

For those that can't afford this camp we also have the much cheaper annual Point Sturt dormitory camp near Milang in May 2006. This camp focusses on relaxation, getting to know each other and activities that we bring along.

I am also happy to organise a Caravan Park camp sometime next year for those that like to camp in tents, or caravans or onsite cabins, but only if sufficient numbers are willing to book in advance (pay a booking fee). Suggestions: Second Valley, Aldinga, Kadina/Moonta area.
