The aim of Scouting
The aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as a member of their local, national and international communities.
What is Scouting all about?
Scouting is all about fun, being in the outdoors, making friends and adventure. Games of all kinds, outings and camps, hikes and skill development activities are combined to form a unique program for young people of all ages.
An Award Scheme operates in each Section (except Joey Scouts). The award scheme enables a scout to participate and receive recognition by the awarding of an appropriate badge. These awards are graded to the person’s age and ability and are designed to assist the member in fulfilling our aim. Through all Sections there is the continuing opportunity for young people to work together learning co- operation, responsibility, leadership skills and the sharing of group experiences.
What to do next?
If your child is interested in Scouts please register their interest with a Homenetmen Arax Scout Leaders or Committee member either in person or via email at
In order to join scouts, please fill out the registration form and return to the committee via email with remittance of payment (payment can be made here), or in person with your cash payement. 
Even if your child is unsure, please don’t let this stop them, they can always come try it out amongst friends. Scouts currently runs every Sunday from 5pm - 6:30 pm for Joeys and Cubs, and 6:30 - 8pm for Scouts and Venturers at the Armenian Community Centre. We look forward to seeing them there.
