Review for Gold Star Teen Adventures, Fayetteville, NC, USA
Gold Star Teen Adventures has given me a community, and I am so blessed to be involved with such an amazing and impactful organization. I went to my first GSTA camp in 2014, and I have truly found a family in the people I have been fortunate enough to meet through this organization. We are united through our loss of a parent in the military, but that loss does not define us. Because of GSTA, I have been backpacking in the mountains of North Carolina, trekked through the jungles of Belize, and gone SCUBA diving in some of the most amazing places in the world, including Bonaire and Grand Cayman. Gold Star Teen Adventures has shaped me into the young adult I am today, and I do not know where I would be without their influence. Through their mentorship, leadership training, and encouragement to live beyond my comfort zone, I have grown so much, and I now mentor other teens who are in the same situation I was a few years ago. I am proud to be able to serve and give back to an organization that has given me so much.
