Since its establishment in 1978, Glendale Homenetmen “Ararat” Chapter’s Scouting has been instilling the values of teamwork and leadership. The main objective is to help scouts develop character, citizenship, knowledge of Armenian culture and personal fitness, and acquire scouting knowledge. This program provides an environment that promotes personal growth while at the same time encouraging strong values and morals that will serve the scouts for the rest of their lives.
Activities range from weekly Sunday activities to field trips and overnight camping expeditions culminating in it’s annual week-long camping trip.
Homenetmen “Ararat” is a member of the Boy Scouts of America Verdugo Hills Council. Currently, the chapter consists of 16 troops (five Boy Scout troops, five Girl Scout units, three Cub Scout packs, three brownie units and one venturing crew) totaling to approximately 500 scouts. Ararat operates one of the largest Boy Scout Troops in the United States.
