“You get to meet new people, new friends and try new things along the way – it’s a great thing to do”

Daniel Kelly – Gaisce Silver Awardee


Time Requirements

With exception to the Adventure Journey, each challenge area requires a minimum participation of 1 hour per week for 26 weeks. The Adventure Journey takes place over a minimum of 3 days and 2 nights.

Bronze Awardees

If you have completed a Bronze Award, you just need to fulfil the requirements above, and so your Silver Award will take at least 26 weeks to complete.

Participants without a Bronze Award

If you haven’t completed a Bronze Award, an additional 26 weeks must be completed in one challenge area of your choice. This could be an activity you really enjoyed, or an activity in which you feel you still have room for improvement. As a result, it will take at least 52 weeks to complete your Silver Award, however everyone is free to complete the award at their own pace.

The application fee for the Silver Award is €20.
