I swam in a dam for the first time!

This year we are celebrating 100 years of Cubbing worldwide. We asked 100 Cubs why Cubbing Rocks. We spoke to Jenson Peters (8) from St Mary’s Development and Care Center (DCC) Cub Pack in the Eastern Cape.

Jenson 1SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
Cubbing is so much fun because we help people and people listen to us.

SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
My best experience with Cubs was swimming in a dam for the first time.

SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
Once I ate porridge with sour milk.

SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
The toughest challenge was hiking!

SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
The most amazing place we visited with Cubs was the 1820 Settlers Monument where the fireballs go from.

SSA: What things have you done with Cubs to help people in your community?
We had a Cubs Alive Campaign where we convinced someone to stop smoking.

SSA: What have you taught people at home that you learned at Cubs?
I taught them that people should help each other.

SSA: What makes a good Akela?
A good Akela is someone who can use good words to make things not out of order.

SSA: Why is your Akela special?
She is special because she helps us to be Cubs. She also brings us together… but if we’re noisy she shouts.

Cubbing Rocks because …we learn such different things comparing to the “boring” school.
