Shearing Camp is an agricultural camp for boys in years 7-12 run at Oriel and Coradgery, two farms near Parkes in the Central West of NSW. Campers will live in army tents and experience the day to day activities of a commercial wool shed. You can learn about and get involved in droving, drafting, catching and penning up sheep, wide-games or sitting around the campfire having a yarn. There will be plenty of wholesome farm cooking from our two great cooks. It is a camp where you will learn about God and are able to discuss and ask questions about the Bible.
