This year we are celebrating 100 years of Cubbing worldwide. In South Africa we are celebrating through Group, District, Regional and National events. But, if we really want to know why Cubbing Rocks, who better to ask than the Cubs themselves….
We spoke to Josh Breetzke (9) from the 1st Tableview Cub Pack in the Western Cape.
SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
I think Cubbing is so much fun because we do a lot of fun activities like the games Helicopter and River – Bank.
SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
My best experience with Cubs is doing a glue hunt at our spy training Cub camp and getting the Akela Debby Chapman’s Cub Shield!
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
At Cubs there aren’t really tough challenges we just have a whole lot of fun!
SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
The most amazing place we visited was at the Cub Camp at the Hawequas Campsite at a mountain with a very beautiful waterfall.
SSA: Can you name a few things you have learnt by being a Cub?
I have learnt how to tie a knot, fry a Vienna with a pringle tube and braai popcorn!
SSA: What things have you done with Cubs to help people in your community?
We did the slipper project to support the Reach for a Dream Foundation and we donated food and groceries to Table View Angels, who help people that struggle in the community.
SSA: What did you teach your mum that you learned at Cubs?
I taught my mum how to fry a Vienna with a pringle tube.
SSA: What makes a good Akela?
A good Akela has to live her life by the Cub law, care for all the Cubs and plan fun activities.
SSA: Why is your Akela special?
My Akela is special because she does a lot of fun activities with our Pack.
Cubbing Rocks because …
We go on awesome camps, do fun activities and learn a lot!
