ANRAK Charitable Foundation has done it again. Anrak has been a long-term supporter of GSTA and has been instrumental in helping GSTA continue the promise to serve the families of our fallen until the need no longer exists. ANRAK continues their support and has gone a step further, they have dedicated a "broom" to Gold Star Teen Adventures in honor of SFC Diesing.
What Adventures Await
Adventure Scuba 301
This year, Gold Star Teen Adventures is taking our experienced divers to the next level of diving. Skills will include buoyancy control, navigation, gas consumption, surveying wrecks, all in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean! This course is for our NAUI Advanced Scuba Divers.
Junior Warrior Weekend
The Junior Warrior Weekend is an opportunity for teens to fly in the wind tunnel, conduct weapons training, conduct maritime and mobility off-road vehicle training, paintball on a giant urban course, and conduct a morning of physical training with Special Operation Teams. Apart from the numerous actives throughout the weekend the teens will be challenged with many leadership and team building events.
Granite Climbing Adventure
This leadership based adventure will teach teens a number of rock climbing fundamentals to include belaying, top-roping, rappelling, and “mock” lead climbing up the best granite formations in western North Carolina. In addition to the lessons that will be learned climbing, teens will be challenged through leadership positions, teamwork and team-building, and culminate the week with multi-pitch climbing.
Gold Star Teen Adventures is taking eager and adventurous teens to get their Open Water certification to Key West. We will be staying at the United States Army Combat Dive School. While there, Gold Star teens will complete 2 days of pool training then off to the ocean for their open water dives. Get ready to dive!
