This week topped my expectation once again. It is a moment of pride to hear my daughter recite VandeMataram and ask for watermelon in Hindi. Any number of India trips would not have given her the exposure and understanding of Indian festivals as this week/camp did in five days. We look forward to another fun – filled week next week.

--JagdeepChhabra

My daughter has been coming almost every week. We love the cultural things she is learning. Lots of things which we knew as kids, but have forgotten over the years. In the end when she stands up and recites National Anthem is the most heart touching experience.

--Reid Powers

I am very happy I sent my daughter to the Jano India camp. She learnt a lot in a short while having fun and doing things she liked. I especially liked the cooking segment it definitely makes the kids feel "grown up". Great job, would recommend it to my friends.

--PriyaPullur

My son has attended the 1st and partly the 2nd level of Hindi class before. We liked the idea of camps as it exposes our kids to all the different festivals, food, traditions and culture of India. This way the kids appreciate it a lot more and understand better. I liked the camp a lot.

--VigytaBhargava

Sahana does not have any background whatsoever in Hindi. She goes to a dual immersion program in Spanish and English. I believe this camp helped her develop a lot of interest in Hindi as well as her identity as an Indian American. I am quite impressed with her Hindi pronunciation. The teachers (all of them) were very warm and supportive. We are leaving today for India& I bet Sahana can practice her Hindi quite a bit there. I would strongly recommend this camp to our friends & colleagues. Hope to see you next summer!

--PushkarWagle

Medha had wonderful time and learned a lot. Presentation by kids was real fun to watch, and it was amazing to see it prepared in very short time (1 week time)
