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 Elizabeth Downes (10) from 1st Henley Cub Pack in Gauteng.

I like Cubbing because we do fun activities and sometimes we make funny jokes.

My best experience was working as a team at a camp.
SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
The weirdest thing was an ashy boerewors.
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
The toughest challenge was becoming a Sixer and to get the Six to listen to you.

One of the most amazing places I went to was Arrowe Park. We also went to the Remembrance Day in Johannesburg,that was amazing too.
SSA: Can you name a few things you have learnt by being a Cub?

Once we did a recycling hike and sorted it into glass, plastic and metallic.

A good Akela listens and helps, they are also fun but sometimes strict.
