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.
