This year we are celebrating 100 years of Cubbing worldwide. We spoke to Sinjon Alvin Whittal (10) from 1st Henley Cub Pack in Gauteng about his adventure.
SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
Cubbing is fun because we play a lot of fun games, we make fires and learn new things.
SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
During a Cub meeting we cooked on an open fire. That was my best experience.
SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
I think the weirdest thing was eating ants…
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
The toughest challenge was pulling myself up three meters on a rope.
SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
The most amazing place was the Gilwell Scout Campsite for the Cub Fun Day in 2015.
SSA: Can you name a few things you have learnt by being a Cub?
I learned to be honest, helpful, kind and caring.
SSA: What things have you done with Cubs to help people in your community?
My Pack planted trees and for my Leaping Wolf badge, I am collecting water.
SSA: What did you teach your mum that you learned at Cubs?
I taught my mum how to make a fire.
SSA: What makes a good Akela?
A good Akela is kind, helpful, fun and makes our time at Cubs cool.
SSA: Why is your Akela special?
My Akela is special because he is my dad.
Cubbing Rocks because … we get to be outdoors.
