Our scouts meet for regular meetings every Sunday from 10am - 1pm at the Hollywood Armenian Center. The Center provides a safe and fun environment for scouts to learn and make lasting friendships. Currently there are approximately 100 active scout members in the chapter. The Homenetmen Los Angeles scouting division is affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, registered as Troop 923.
The scouting division has a full and multi-faceted program that runs year-round. The troop is engaged in various weekly activities such as physical education and playing games, constructing arts and crafts, singing songs, discipline and team-building activities, and learning from educational lectures about nature, first aid, and Armenian history among other topics. Scouts also go on field trips outside the Center throughout the year, such as to theme parks, museums, hiking trips, and summer camps. Scouts are also engaged in community service, such as visiting Ararat Retirement Home to entertain the retirees, participating in Little Armenia clean-up projects, presiding over Armenian Genocide commemoration events, and serving as color guard for many community events.
Throughout the year, the Regional Scouting Council (RSC) plans numerous functions that bring together scouts from different chapters to meet and engage in scouting activities together. Such events include leadership conferences, educational projects, merit badge programs, and Scouting Jamborees. Every four years, there is a Homenetmen Scouting Jamboree in Armenia, where scouts from chapters around the world congregate at one campsite in Pyuragan, Armenia, providing a rich opportunity for our scouts to meet and learn from other scouts across the globe.
