With Akela 2016 at our doorstep we are still chatting to Cubs nationwide. Today we are talking to Eric Cecil Shutte (10) from 58th Duebow Cub Pack in KwaZulu-Natal.
SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
Cubbing is fun because I get to go on camps and learn new stuff. I also get to make new friends out of school.
SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
I enjoy doing raft races!
SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
A stew that I cooked in tin foil over a fire was the weirdest thing I ate outdoors.
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
Going to the Soapbox Darby (Eshawe) was the toughest challenge.
SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
I visited the Midmar Dam and we had lots of fun even when it was raining.
SSA: Can you name a few things you have learnt by being a Cub?
I have learnt how to fix a tap, cook on a gas unit, the safety of lightening a match, first aid and also how to listen to Akela.
SSA: What things have you done with Cubs to help people in your community?
I have helped clean up gardens and removing litter.
SSA: What did you teach your mum that you learned at Cubs?
I taught my mum how to cook stew in tin foil on the fire.
SSA: What makes a good Akela?
A good Akela has fun with us, teaches us about our environment and about survival tents and also how to survive in the wild.
SSA: Why is your Akela special?
My Akela is special because she helps us with our projects and she makes me feel special.
Cubbing Rocks because … you get to go on camps, learn things and make lots of friends!
