I had never heard of Knights Of Heros Foundation until My Grandaughter and my 2 Great Grandchildren returned from Colorado this past weekend. They came to visit me, and my great grandaughter sat on my lap (she is 12yrs. old) so excited about her week at camp. This young lady, who is usually not very talkative was so excited, and with a big smile on her face, started telling me what a great time she had, and allof the things she got to do. Things, that her Daddy would have done with her, could he have been here. It was hard for this grateful Grandmother to not let her see the happy tears swelling up in my eyes, as she talked. Her brother who attended Day Camp ( as he was not old enough this year), was very happy to take part in all of the activities for his age group. They can't wait until next year. They made new friends, done new things, and were so grateful. Thank you " Knights Of Heroes Foundation" (A nonprofit org.) which now have my admiration, and my support...... THANKS to "all of the volunteers" for the wonderful work you do, with love. Thank you also, for the help you gave my Grandaughter, and the smile you put on her face!!! A very grateful Grandmother. I will be telling others of your great organization. :)

I have never been but my nephew is the one who started this camp. He is a great person for doing this for these kids. Steve has a big heart and really likes doing this for the kids. My brother-in-law, Steves father helps out as many others do. It is great opportunity for the boys and girls who go. Everyone can't stop talking about the great time they had. As the boys get older they come back to be mentors and leaders.

As a friend of 2 women that have lost their husbands in war, I have seen facebook pictures and posts of their children enjoying the opportunities Knights of Heroes provide. It warms my heart to know the children of our fallen soldiers have people like you care enough to give them these experiences. God bless y'all

What an amazing organization! My daughter and grandkids attended for the first time this year and had such a wonderful experience. My grandson wasn't old enough for camp but the activities provided for younger kids and moms were awesome! My granddaughter couldn't stop talking about the experience and it is usually hard to pry a word out of her mouth. I am one very grateful grandma! Thanks to all who helped.
