In the Service of the Children of Our Nation’s Valiant Heroes

Gold Star Teen Adventures offers unique, fun,  and impactful outdoor adventures to the children of our nation’s heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty. Our organization was founded on a vision of providing an environment where youth can come together and be a part of new and exciting experiences with others who have shared a similar journey.

The purpose of our programs is to provide healing, mentorship, leadership development,  opportunities, and a sense of patriotism. Our team aims to serve the surviving children of our valiant military servicemen, law enforcers, designated first responders, and government agency officials.
