Our programs

Each day, many people – people just like you – provide help to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and partners share a mission of serving those who serve at home.

We roll up our sleeves and donate time, money and hard work. We provide support to military and first responders’ children in order to enrich families to connect, restore,and thrive. 

We do this every day because Hero Kids Foundation is needed – every day.

Nature based activities

Family surf camp

We’re proud to offer family surf camps for our law enforcement and first responder families in partnership with VB Surf Sessions. These one-day excursions at Croatan Beach in Virginia Beach will teach you and your child[ren] the basics of surfing in a fun and supportive environment, complete with a pizza lunch and memories that’ll last long after summer is gone.


Our nature-based programs provide opportunities for team building and developing family dynamics through activities like working in raised gardens, harvesting crops and other nature-focused activities. Each is designed to establish a families’ connection and boost their overall communication. 

Nature based activities

Kayaking excursions

Our kayak excursions, led by the instructors at VB Surf Sessions, will take you and your family on a tour of Rudee Inlet in a single or tandem kayak. You might even spot some native wildlife, like river otters or cranes!
