The scouts and guides from Dakor, Ahmednagar and Kawant enthralled the gathering with their spirited enthusiasm swaying to the beats of the dhol, the lezim and the cymbals. The Salesian students of Divyadaan Salesian College of Philosophy enhanced the ceremonial extravaganza with their polished band pieces.  Percussionists from Sacred Heart School, Nashik provided the local flavour with the feisty rhythmic Nashik Dhol.

Further on, the ceremony struck a solemn note as the dignitaries were escorted by the colour party to the stage at the call of the bugle. This was followed by the flag break, the national anthem and the scout prayer song. Immediately thereafter, 17 groups representing the scouts and guides from the different Don Bosco and Auxilium schools participated in a highly disciplined march past to the beats of 'Colnel Boogey'.  

A serene and synchronised prayer dance by the students of Kilbil School, Nashilk was then followed by Father Ian Doulton, the Boscoree Camp Chief welcoming the gathering and encouraging the scouts to be strong and self-reliant. ''Scouting is a way of life that reminds you that today you are a young citizen of this great country but before long you will be a full-fledged adult citizen of India.'' said Father Doulton.

The Boscoree Souvenir was released by Ms Choi, amidst a host of Salesian and other dignitaries. Sister Rita Dora the Provincial of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians of the Mumbai Province; Father Godfrey D'souza, Salesian Provincial of Mumbai; Father Robert Simon - the Don Bosco Youth Association Delegate for South Asia; Bishop Lourdes Daniel of the Diocese of Nashik; Dr. Ravindra Singhal, Commissioner of Police, Nashik City and Ms Ann Choi. ''We need you to be ambassadors for Scouting,'' said Choi as she encouraged the scouts to continue the scouting legacy of instilling leadership, character and service and declared the 13th National Boscoree open.

The highlight of the event was the unveiling of the 'I Love Boscoree' selfie point by the Chief Guest. The installation is sure to be a fascinating crowd magnet over the next 2 days.

The inaugural ceremony concluded with a performance of the theme song and the vote of thanks by the Camp Chief.
