appropriate challenge for party

I'm about to throw my party up against a camp of Orcs and ogres. I want to have it be an appropriate level of challenge, but I don't want the party to die. I have a nice setup for it, but I'm unsure of how many enemies to throw in there.

The party is 6th level, and there are 6 of them - 1 shaman (think druid), 1 rogue, 1 barbarian, 1 fighter, 1 sorceror/fighter, 1 wizard

In the camp, so far, I have about 15 orcs, 3 orcs with one level of fighter, a half-fiend ogre, and 2 regular ogres. That seems like the party will stomp them. It is at night, but there are enough bonfires to easily see by. The party will probably have time to prepare/enable spells, and are currently unwounded. They do not have mounts and the camp is walled with logs.
