For 100 years adult volunteers have been doing their best to empower Cubs in the Scouting Movement. We spoke to Moeletsi Sekano (10) from 5th Ikageng Cub Pack in the North West.
SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
Cubbing is fun because there are many things we learn from Akela, like how to be a good child towards our parents.
SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
My best experience was when we were attending the summer camp, it was fun because it was my first camp.
SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
The weirdest thing I ate outdoors were Marshmallows at the camp fire.
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
The toughest challenge was when I had to adjust to being a Cub because I am an introvert and can’t make friends very easily.
SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
The most amazing place we visited was the cinema, it was so much fun and the movie was also very fun. After the movie we went to have lunch.
SSA: What did you teach your mum that you learned at Cubs?
I taught my dad how to make the Chinese paper lantern, it was so beautiful I wanted to teach everyone.
SSA: What makes a good Akela?
Being patient with children and someone who is fun to be around.
SSA: Why is your Akela special?
Our Akela is special because she is always smiling and has something fun for us to do.
Cubbing Rocks because … it takes us places we have never been before.
