Gold Star Sailing provides a co-ed, fun, non-threatening and nurturing experience for surviving teens (14-19) of military personnel who have given their lives in defense of our freedoms.

This adult-supervised adventure, aboard sailing vessels in beautiful Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, offers teens a fun and exciting high adventure experience while healing, learning valuable life skills and the development of enduring friendships with other Gold Star Teens.

Thanks to people like YOU, this special Gold Star Sailing is offered at no cost to Gold Star Teens.


100% of your donation goes to support this sailing / healing adventure for these deserving teens whose parents gave their lives in defense of our freedoms. $1,750 fully funds one youth for the entire week, including airfare!

  • Swimming and Kayaking
  • Visiting historic landmarks
  • An introduction to the use of dinghies, windsurfers, small sailboats and paddle boards
