Narrows Park was established as a Christian Camp in 1953. Narrows is a registered non profit organisation and today it operates largely as a leadership farm, working predominantly with youth and young adults, developing leadership skills and providing practical opportunities in a camp environment.

When Narrows isn't running events the camp hosts groups including church camps, sporting groups, school camps, community organisations, weddings and everything in between. We run a full staff, a lot of volunteers and provide services including a full catering package, activities & team building experiences, fully staffed programs and more.
The Narrows has a rich history in the Waikato and we're working towards a great future developing young leaders, strong families and a great community through a camping platform.
Book in today to experience Narrows for yourself.
We host and cater for groups of up to 350 people who combine all of our accommodation options including marae style sleeping in the halls. We currently have 120 cabin beds plus powered sites and acres of camping.
Narrows runs a commercial kitchen and offers three domestic kitchens as well.
There is a main hall capable of holding 300 youth or 250 adults who like a bit more elbow room. There is also the Camp 2 hall and Chapel which can each hold between 80 - 120 people plus a few other outdoor spaces that can be used for small group break outs or alternative meeting spaces.
All of this on 27 acres of rural land on the edge of Hamilton City.
the story of Narrows
A man with a shovel and a patch of dirt saw a need in the Waikato for a Christian Camp. It was 1952.
There’s a bit more to the story than that, but it can be easy to look back and over simplify the mountains of hours and effort, love and patience, trial and error that goes into building something beautiful, like the story of Narrows Park.
