LONAVLA- MAHARASHTRA, NOVEMBER 23, 2013: Scouting and Guiding is undoubtedly an excellent opportunity to train students to become responsible citizens and build their leadership qualities. The Students of Don Bosco Senior Secondary School attended 'GROMO'13', a Scout and Guide Camp held at Lonavla from 11th November to 14th November. It was not only an outdoor fun program for the students but also a program aimed at developing their character and making them physically and mentally fit.
Eleven Don Bosco Schools from Maharashtra participated in the camp. Fr. Anthony Goyal was the Camp Chief and Fr. Lorenzo D'Souza was the Camp Co-ordinator. The theme of the camp was 'Heal the World'.

Adventure games, hiking, learning to tie various types of knots were some of the activities organized at the camp.
