Connect and Celebrate with Our Cabaña Challenge


How is it going to work?

  1. On April 29th we will be hosting an online challenge that allows everyone to get involved with our 60th Anniversary celebrations.
  2. You can participate either as a group (with a maximum of eight people per group) or as an individual, whichever you decide, please like and send us an INBOX message in our official Facebook page- “Nuestra Cabaña” with your/your patrol’s and leader’s name, a contact e-mail address, how many people are participating in the challenge and where you are from.
  3. We will be uploading links to all of the necessary materials to complete the challenge on our official Facebook page, for you to access in advance and plan how you are going to complete the challenge.
  4. There are four main sections to the challenge; WAGGGS and World Centres, History of Our Cabaña, Around Our Cabaña, and Mexican Culture. Each of these sections has four activities for you to pick and choose from.
  5. In order to be in with a chance of being awarded with the Our Cabaña 60th Anniversary Badge you must complete two challenges from each section in addition to our compulsory activities and upload your evidence from 9am until 9pm Mexican time (UTC-5). We have 60 badges available for the first 60 participants to complete the challenge.
  6. However, if you wish to merely take part in only parts of the challenge that is completely fine! We will send you via e-mail blank certificates so that you can fill them out and give them to your group to commemorate your participation in Our Cabaña’s 60th Remember that you can also complete the challenge at any time you want, even past April 29th.
  7. In order to keep track of those who are completing the challenge and for us to know who to send the badges to, we ask you to upload evidence of everything you are doing to our Facebook page “Nuestra Cabaña”- Each time you complete a challenge, the patrol leader (or you, if you are playing on your own) must post the evidence of this on our Facebook page.- Then, the leader should copy the post’s link or make a screenshot and send it to us via inbox. Add the name of the patrol or your name if you are playing individually, so we can monitor which parts of the challenge you completed.

    This way you are helping us to keep track of the activities already finished. Remember: only the patrol leader will be the responsible of making the posts

  8. Once you have completed the challenge, send us your address and how many of your group actually completed the challenge and we will dispatch the badges.
  9. Please ensure that all participants have parental permission to partake in the activities and that anyone featured in videos and photos uploaded to the Facebook page are happy for their face to be shared publically. If not, you can be creative and find alternative ways of taking the photos.
