KNIGHTS OF HEROES FOUNDATION
April 8, 2013

Knights of Heroes works with kids and young adults who have lost one of their parents in the war. We challenge these young people to do things they probably thought they couldn't do. We have individual mentors for each camper who goal is to let these kids know that they are not alone and we are there for them. I watch as a new camper comes in and don't know what to expect. They normally make friends quickly with the other kids because they share a common theme are immediately accepted. You watch as the week gos on and the ones who seemed a little shy at first is right in the middle of everything. They feel safe because they can tell all these men they come in contact with really care about them. My grandson has been coming to this camp since it started and he loves it and is one of the things he really look forward to. I have seen these kids come in and have watch them grow into confident young men, who some come back after graduation as junior mentors wanting to share with the new kids all the great things they have done and to help them have a great experience like they did. I highly recommend this camp because the ones running it truly care about the campers and not only do they want them to have a great time but they want to instill in them that they are not alone and that they can meet any challenge that comes their way. We want to watch them grow into confident men and women.

KNIGHTS OF HEROES FOUNDATION
June 20, 2012

I have volunteered for the last 4 years and can,t tell you how much I have enjoyed it and have seen the boys really grow in these years. They have a lot more confidence in themselves and they start to open up to others around them and even help the new ones who might feel out of place. Each year you see them get a little stronger and a little more sure of themselves. My grandson has gone for the last 5 years and I know how much this camp means to him. The mentors really care about each boy that comes to camp and we have seen several of these boys turn in to young men that we all ought to be proud of. Young men with confidence and courage and know that we will always be there for them
