Will the regular multi activity programme booked by a school fulfill the Gaisce requirement?
No. The Gaisce programme will take two days for the bronze, three for the silver and four for the gold. The programme is specialised and must be arranged with Delphi before arrival.
Will the students have to prepare before arrival?
It is essential that the Gaisce participants are prepared physically for the days ahead. If some members of the group are not prepared it may prevent the others from finishing.
What do they need to bring?
Comfortable walking shoes or boots are essential.
(They will also need standard kit list sent to schools)
Can the Gaisce candidates partake in other activities outside of the programme?
They must complete each part of the Gaisce programme in the time recommended before they can take part in other activities.
