Review for KNIGHTS OF HEROES FOUNDATION, Loveland, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son participated in his 3rd year at Knights of Heroes and I am deeply indebted! He has learned how to manage himself in challenging situations that require independent thought. He has learned how to lead. He has learned that he is capable and he can push himself. He has learned a lot about himself thanks to the incredible mentors. He has discovered some of what he would have learned from his dad - had his dad been around to teach him. This organization understands how important it is to lead a boy into manhood with emphasis on character and values. My son has gained insight into his future and his potential and he will use this to guide him into adulthood. Grateful to this organization!!!

Review for KNIGHTS OF HEROES FOUNDATION, Loveland, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

KOH is an amazing opportunity for young boys and girls to reacquaint themselves with their self confidence since losing their parent in the war. Many people don't realize that when a parent dies suddenly, the child feels very unsure of what he understands about the world. The loss can be so devastating and have a deep and quiet affect on the self confidence and self esteem of a developing child. I have witnessed my son literally "BLOOM" when he returned from spending 1 week at KOH. The camp philosophy is oriented toward allowing the child to rediscover his or her potential in a safe environment where everyone has experienced loss. Through activities and challenges, the kids are encouraged to rely on themselves to problem solve, dig deep, and reveal that they can accomplish difficult tasks with team work and support. Just like a dad would do, this camp allows for physical experiences and mentoring while learning about the world. It is a place that honors what the dad did, exposes the children to the outdoors, and teaches so much that would have been lost. The KOH experience is life changing, thoughtful, fosters growth and confidence, and exactly what my son needed! Thankfully, he will now have this incredible experience to draw from as he becomes a man!
