Development of the Movement

Scouting in Armenia has an old history.  The first Armenian Scouting groups were organised in 1910 in Van Orphan's houses and continued until 1922 when Scouting was officially banned and the ‘Young Pioneers’ became the official state youth organisation. Scouting was reintroduced in 1988. There soon appeared a need for creating a separate movement for girls and NAGGGS "Astgik" was established in 1996.

There are regular meetings of the National Board and the National Conference is held annually. 

During 1998-2001 many activities were held, some of which corresponded to ancient national traditions.

The first National Jamboree took place at the “Nor Berd” centre in 1998.

Armenia was made an Associate Member of WAGGGS at the 31st World Conference in Manila 2002.

The association became Full Member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts during the 35th World Conference that took place in Hong Kong in July 2014
