Welcome to the 66th Fife Scout Group!
We have been providing scouting for young people in Aberdour in Fife for over 80 years.
Our group is part of the Rosyth District and operates a Beaver colony, Cub pack and Scout troop which meet once a week in the church hall. We are also in partnership with the Hawkcraig Explorers who meet at the same time as our Scouts.
Scouts is about fun, challenges and adventure, and that means for both our youth members and our adult volunteers. At the 66th we try to get outdoors with our sections as much as possible, either on our section meeting nights or weekend camps.
Scouting is open to all young people aged 6 to 25, of every faith and background. There are also plenty of opportunities for adults to become involved as Leaders, Assistants or Administrators.
So if you're interested in joining the adventure please get in touch through the Contact Us page.
Scouting only happens because of our 160,000 adult volunteers
Volunteering in Scouting is fun and rewarding - just ask our Chief Scout, Bear Grylls:
'Parents invariably see what Scouting does for their children and many decide to get involved with their child's scout group. Whether they can give time once a year or one hour a month, helping out is flexible. It can work around your life, and parents tell me every day what a positive experience it is contributing to young peoples development.'
Not all of our adults work with young people. There are roles for managers, administrators, trainers, event organisers and many others. We can provide many flexible volunteering options that fit around existing commitments.
Put your skills to use, learn new ones and play an active role in your local community.
Volunteering is easier than you think. With full support and training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis.

At the 66th we currently have a small team of section leaders who look after all the sections plus a small Executive committee who ensure that the group meets its obligations as a charity and has sufficient funds for its activities. There are currently five leaders running three sections, providing 51/2 hours of Scouting every week during term time plus running multiple camps per year.
