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 Dylan Mc Gregor (9) from 1st Rosebank Cub Pack in the Western Cape.

Cubbing is fun because we learn a lot about the outdoors.

My best experience was when we hiked up Table Mountain and slept over in the Scout Hut.

The weirdest thing I ate outdoors was pasta.
