Kolkata, Dec. 30. Few metres away from the waters of Hooghly, on the greenery of the seminary complex in the festive season between Christmas and New Year, Juboree 2013 has found an ideal location to pitch its tent. The seventh edition of Scouts and Guides Meet organized by Salesian Province of Kolkata got off to a respectful start here this afternoon on December 29, 2013.
Dressed in the traditional uniform, the Scouts and Guides stepped into Juboree 2013 in gallant footsteps, rhythmically marching with the reverberating thud of drums. The Chief Guest, Fr. Jose Pampadiyil, the Vice Provincial of Salesian Province of Kolkata stood to receive the honorary salute during the march past by the troops.

Prior to declaring the Camp open, the Chief Guest exhorted the students to awake as scouts and guides to the purpose of life. Referring to the theme of the Juboree 2013, ''Heal the World'', the Chief Guest said, ''Seek God's help and cooperate with one another to heal the World.''

The Camp Chief, Fr. James Chacko opened his address to the students with a parable on animals and promised students three days of fun and learning. ''We have come not only for entertainment but for enlightenment as well.''

Participated by 16 educational institutions Juboree 2013 has the strength of 473 scouts and guides. The troops come from educational institutions run by the Salesian Family in West Bengal and Sikkim. A troop from Nepal is an international impression on the colourful and vivacious congregation of youngsters.
