The Group Camp will this year be held at the Don Bosco Campsite in Chiclana Spain from the 8th to the 10th April 2011.

As St George's Day is only a couple of weekends after, the campsite will be decorated with the St Georges flags and banners. Sections are also encouraged to use this as a theme for the camp.
