: Around 1700 scouts and guides from 70 schools along with 300 scoutmasters and guide captains from 18 states across the country are participating in the 11th National Boscoree which started off on Thursday at Don Bosco Higher Secondary School Dimapur. The ‘mini India’ camp being held on the theme “Peace on Earth” was inaugurated by Brig. Devinder Singh, SM, from 3 Crops who graced the inaugural function as chief guest.
Addressing the gathering, the chief guest urged the scouts participants make the world a “greener, cleaner and happier place”. “Trees grow tall, bear fruit and live long when it is cared for while a sapling,” he said while emphasizing on the necessity of proper care and support for young students in their growing stage.
Appreciating the scouts and guides movement, Brig. Devinder Singh asserted that the Boscoree, was a movement that paid attention and nurtured the future of the society.
Welcoming the participants at the five days camp, director Don Bosco Society Dimapur Fr. James Poonthuruthil called upon scouts and guides to enlarge their ‘circle of friends’. Director Don Bosco Society, Guwahati, Fr. (Dr.) Joe Almeida representing the South East Asia Don Bosco Society, invited the Bosco scouts and guides to learn the diversity in North East and promote unity in the country.
It may be noted that, Boscoree is held once in every three years, keeping alive the belief, conviction and message of the two legends--Don Bosco and Baden Powell-- that young people have tremendous power and energy to impact changes in the world and that the society needs to instill in them love, confidence and trust.
The Boscoree is a time when the young scouts and guides get ample opportunities to improve, cultivate and develop the many hidden and sprouting talents.
The agenda has been directed to the growth of the holistic individual person. Camp variegated programmes involve animations on several topics, quiz, dramatics, games, singing, competitions in door and out of door, test of practical skills, etc. Don Bosco’s vision of making young people good citizens and God-fearing individuals are given its place during the camp. One of the outstanding features is the discipline of the individual and troop. The young scouts and guides are tested intellectually, physically, psychologically, mentally, and emotionally through many programmes and activities at the camp.
The five-day long extravaganza will display unique, creative and indigenous talents of Bosco scouts and guides. The event would also include various competitions such as folk songs, traditional dances, indigenous gadgets, handicrafts, model village making, quiz, group dynamics among others.
The occasion was attended by Fr. Dominic Sequiera, member of International Youth Pastoral team, based at Rome, Fr. Maria Charles, South Asian Delegate for DBYA, South Asian coordinator for Education and Culture and secretary to AIDBES, Fr. Nestor Guria, Vice Provincial of Dimapur Province, guides and guide captains, scouts and scoutmasters, fathers, brothers, sisters and accompanying teachers and guardians.
