Eligibility Criteria

The Knights of Heroes Foundation is a small organization.  Our capacity is roughly 75 kids per year.  Because the kids stay in the program for such a long time, we are only able to invite 4 new families per year.  With few exceptions, new families are typically referred to the program by families already attending KOH.


The Knights of Heroes program is available to boys and girls who have lost their fathers in service to our Nation.  It is important that these children share a common bond.  The following eligibility criteria have been established:

       Father was the legal guardian of the child applying for camp

       Mother is not remarried (or have a live-in long term boyfriend) 

       Minimum age - 11 years old


The focus of our program is to provide adult mentorship for children who have lost their father. This is the reason the program was created. We are not able to accommodate every family that applies to the program therefore, our focus must remain on those children who have no one in their lives to provide them the mentorship they are missing since the passing of their father. If your child has someone in their life to fill this role, we ask that you leave room for those without. Thank you for your understanding.
