“Do a good deed” is something that every Cub Pack often puts into practice. We spoke to Lucy de Bruyn (10) a Cub from 2nd Kenridge Air Scouts Group in the Western Cape about her experience.
SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
Cubbing is so much fun because you learn new things and enjoy seeing your friends.
SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
My best experience with Cubs was winning the Tug-of-War at the 2015 R-Don Competition against 1st Durbanville and DKS.
SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
The weirdest thing I have eaten outdoors is an ant.
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
It was the 2015 Edward Shield because we had to work very hard and there were lots of Packs competing. It all paid off as we won the Edward Shield for the first time in our history.
SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
The most amazing place was when we went on a hike at the Hawequas Camp and there was a beautiful river with really smooth rocks.
SSA: Can you name a few things you have learnt by being a Cub?
I have learnt lots of knots, and also that you should do a good deed to somebody every day.
SSA: What things have you done with Cubs to help people in your community?
Last year we did a beach clean-up, and we are currently collecting items to donate to the Tygerberg Kangaroo Care Unit.
SSA: What did you teach your mum that you learned at Cubs?
When I go home from Cubs I teach her how to do some of the knots and I tell her what I have learnt that day.
SSA: What makes a good Akela?
A good Akela is a person who helps and disciplines children.
SSA: Why is your Akela special?
My Akela is special as she is very kind, always helps us and lets us do lots of fun things.
Cubbing Rocks because … you get to see your friends every week and we go on lots of fun camps.
