“I really enjoyed doing Gaisce! The best part for me are the fun memories I have. We had some good laughs away with the group on the Adventure Journey and the Residential Project. We still talk about those trips when we meet up“

Dylan White – Gaisce Gold Awardee

Residential – Gold Participants Only

If you are undertaking the Gaisce Gold Award, you must undertake a Residential Project.

The Residential Project challenges you to embark on a 5 Days, 4 Night residential in an unfamiliar environment with people who are not their usual companions, working towards a common goal.

The Residential Project activity should take place over consecutive days and nights.

In exceptional circumstances, the residential can be completed over two weekends, using the same activity, within the same calendar year.

This must be approved in advance with Gaisce – The President’s Award.

If a participant is aged under 18, the PAL must ensure that safeguarding principles are paramount.
