Sausage sizzlers front up for ICPA Sports Camp

Kids from all over rural North Queensland will be heading to Charters Towers this weekend to participate in the Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association (ICPA) ‘Fit for Rural Futures’ camp.

The camp gives rural and isolated children an opportunity to get intensive coaching and lessons in seven different sports  during the three days, then enjoy a bit of friendly competition on the morning of the fourth day before heading home.

NQ Dry Tropics grazing support team – Josh Nicholls, Carleigh Drew and Ashleigh Kilgannon – will be helping out at the camp, sweating over barbecues on Sunday night (28 November), the “meet and greet: function before the camp begins the following day.

It will conclude on 2 December.

The NQ Dry Tropics team is looking forward to (not) burning the sausages and turning out mounds of beautifully caramelised onions for the children and their parents.
