We encourage our campers to stay engaged with Knights of Heroes long after they formally graduate from the program. We have found that some of the greatest challenges these kids will face are after they graduate from high school. We are committed to walking alongside these young men and women through ever stage of their lives.
The Foundation offers an annual graduate retreat called, "Reality Check". This is an opportunity for our graduates to reunite with their friends and share their successes and challenges.
If graduates desire an opportunity to serve as a KOH mentor, the process is as follows:
1st year back to KOH summer camp - graduates will serve on a work crew. Work crews will arrive early to prep the camp, complete work projects at the camp during the week of the summer camp and stay late to tear down and clean up the camp.
2nd year back to KOH summer camp - graduates will serve on staff. This can be as a part of the shooting, climbing, ropes course, kitchen or general staff.
3rd year back to KOH summer camp - graduates will serve as junior mentors on a 1st - 3rd year team.
4th year back to KOH summer camp - graduates are now full up mentors, assigned to two 1st- 3rd year campers.
We have adult mentors at KOH who started this program in 2007 at the age of 8 (prior to our age restriction).
