Gold Star Teen Adventures: Navy SEALs for a Weekend 2020
For the past couple of years TDFoundation has partnered with Gold Star Teen Adventures.
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.
“Our 35 teens recently had the opportunity to travel to Virginia Beach to hang out with Navy SEALs for a weekend! They got to train in the shoot house, ride on boats with the Navy Special Boat Teams, “skydive” in the vertical wind tunnel, climb an outdoor rock wall, participate in PT, play pool games, laser tag, and enjoy meals in the Navy SEAL dining facility!!
The teens had an amazing time, were able to reconnect with their peers and team leaders, and had the unique opportunity to see where many of their fathers worked, trained, and what they did for a profession.”
