Camp Jano India
The camp was a wonderful introduction to how ‘cool’ learning Hindi can be for our kids in the US. In just a single week I could see improvement in my son’s pronunciation of Hindi words. He camp’s various themes weaves in stories about India and it’s people which made Jano India more than just a Hindi camp. Kudos to USHF.
Our younger son is now beginning to get settled in very well into his first week at Camp, and I am actually quite amazed at how many words of Hindi he has started uttering in just the
last three days (he is usually quite good at learning to hear and understand a new language, but very reluctant to speak it). So kudos, your methods are working well.
Thank you for teaching my daughter about all famous people and various food and cultural activities.
I was very impressed with Jano India. Our son had a great time learning Hindi, doing arts & crafts, cooking Indian snacks and learning about Indian leaders. The teacher to student ratio was good. The teachers and assistance were very caring & enjoy working with kids.
I would like to thank the group camp that giving all the information about great people in India. The kids learn about the culture and language. It is a wonderful feeling that they learnt about their parents’ culture.
We are glad to send Esha for the ‘Jano India’ camp. Esha has learnt a lot in just 2 weeks. She is excited to wake up early, just to come here. Esha has made new friends, learnt Hindi and the Indian festivals. A happy child = happy parent
Wonderful performance by the kids, especially with just 1 week of practice. Amazed to see how much they have learned in just one week and how much they have come to love India! Keep up the wonderful work and would love to come back!
Wonderful opportunity for non-Hindi speaking kids to learn nuances of the language and traditions/festivals of India. My son loved every day at this camp! Great teachers and staff.
Excellent camp my son Asteya has learned a lot in two weeks. We are planning to continue for remaining weeks. Every week Jano India has a program in the end – very well organized. I would recommend the camp any day.
It was a extremely good experience for my kids. A definite come back
We had a great experience at the Jano India camp. There is a good mix of learning and fun. My son had a great time doing the cooking activities, made friends and learned a lot about our culture. This camp is really enriching. Congratulations on a great effort by the teaching team. Thanks!!!
Thank you for a wonderful camp. The boys thoroughly enjoyed it and were very excited to share all the days happenings with us. They’ve also learnt so much over the last week it’s absolutely amazing. We wish we had signed them up for all the weeks. We will definitely be back next time.
Thank you very much for the teachers and volunteers of USHF& Jano India for making my daughter’s summer so much fun and enjoyable. She loved learning Hindi and about India. Most importantly she made friends and got so much love from her wonderful teachers. The Jano India team is like a loving family for her. Thank you for everything!!
Very informative, my kid is now starting to talk and sing songs in Hindi. He wants to come back to this camp. Very good camp to get kids started in Hindi
Aapkaa ‘Jano India Camp’ bahut hee prashansa poorn prayatna hai. Aaj kay karyakrum me in bachchon kee performance dekh kar bahut hee achchaa lagaa. Bachchay bahut kuchh seekh rahay hain apnay desh kay baaray mein. Bahut hee sarahaneeya!!
This was my son’s first week in the camp. He really enjoyed it. It was very informative for him. It encouraged him to learn more Hindi. He is going to come for next 2 weeks. Kudos to USHF
We are completely new to this summer program. My kid is very new to Hindi too. She really enjoyed this camp. I think she learnt something about India too. She said that they were making yummy and healthy recipes too. I hope we will continue next year this camp.

An excellent camp!! My daughter not only learnt so much about India and Hindi language but most of all she had fun while at it. The hard work of teachers shows in the Friday presentation they do. Highly recommended!
Shreya had a great time. She talked about the games she played & her teachers. She is also more open to talking in Hindi.
She had a lot of fun in the class. She was able to pick up a lot of Hindi words and phrases during the week. It was a very useful camp.
This is Rohan’s 2nd year at Jano India. It’s refreshing to see how hard the teachers work to keep the level of education/fun high. Thanks to you guys Rohan picked up many cultural aspects about Indian culture.
Suchita has shown tremendous improvements in her Hindi learning since past 3-4 weeks that she has been at Jano India Camp. The songs and material they learn is interesting and fun. I’m thankful for Jano India for helping my daughter learn Indian culture better.
The Jano India is a wonderful effort. Children are learning a lot about India which we are not able to teach at home ourselves. It is commendable and worth appreciating. Good show!! Keep it up!! Volunteers are doing an awesome job. Thanks a lot!
We wanted a camp where both kids could start learning Hindi. At Jano India summer camp they have made good progress on that. Learning poems, letters, plays in Hindi. It has got kids excited about the Hindi. Learning facts about India came as a bonus.
This was our first time and my 6 year old loved it. She was super excited about singing and talking in Hindi. She enjoyed the cooking activity and art work projects. She is looking forward to spending another week at Camp Jano India.
Excellent organization, professionalism and very valuable exposure to kids towards Indian culture in the right approach. Keep it up.
My son had a great time in camp for both weeks that he attended. I was surprised at how much they learned in one week period. I would specially like to commend Miss Pallavi for an excellent teaching experience.
My kid really had an enjoyable week (5th) at the Camp Jano India. My son enjoyed playing Holi endeavor of Camp Jano India is really appreciable. My son got acquainted with so many incredible things about India. We are looking forward to come to this Camp next year too.
Maya enjoyed her second week of camp just as much as much as her first. She especially enjoyed playing Holi. She’s also excited to start Hindi classes with you this school year. Monticello Academy and she has already asked if she can do camp again next year.
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.
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.
I’m grandfather of one of your students. Visiting from India. The way he has picked up Hindi speaking is really wonderful. The efforts by all the volunteers is commendable indeed. Great show. Keep it up.
Shalini really enjoyed Camp Jano India. This was her first week. She really enjoyed introduction to Hindi as well as the cooking activities. She wants to return back again.
My girls loved Camp Jano India so much that they have asked me to sign them up for another week.They really enjoyed Holi and they loved giving the performance to Friday. Thanks.
My son Asteya is enrolled in Jano India Camp for 6 weeks. We are very Happy with the program. Very well designed with dedicated teachers. What I like most about it is it has exposed Asteya to many aspects of Indian culture. And above all Asteya loves the Camp and looks forward to coming to the Camp each day!
This is our first time with Jano India and kids really loved the camp.
This is our first time with Jano India and kids really love it. I wish this camp is in San Jose. Kids are ready to come back next year. We are very impressed that kids were able to put-up the play in such a short time. I am sure my kids have learnt a lot about our culture, which was our main intention of joining the camp;
This is Asteya’s mom again . Today is the last day of the camp and we really wish the camp was another 2 weeks.Great work done by all the teachers & volunteers! My niece Sakshi volunteered and has very good things to say about it! Best wishes.
Thank you for the wonderful week. It was very satisfying to see our children learn about the country of their parents’ origin. Samay had a great time doing all the activities. Performance at the end was a great idea so we can see what all they have learnt. Please keep doing this great work!
My daughter learned so much in the one week they were in class. My girls loved the Camp. Thank you
This was our first year at Camp Jano India and what a blast my two kids had. They enjoyed all four weeks of camp, the highlight for my daughter was the on-site Holi celebration. They explored our culture and food through this fun journey and are looking forward to coming back again next year!
It was a pleasant surprise hearing my 8 yr old mouth phrases in Hindi, talk about Gandhi and sprout Indian state names. I think he enjoyed the cooking the most. He looked forward to Jano India Camp every morning. He made some friends and learnt a lot about his country & culture
This is the first time at this camp. It has been fun according to our daughter and she’d like to attend another camp.
Helped my child learn about Indian culture, my kid liked Hindi and was a good form of social interaction. The Camp has instilled lot of good knowledge about India& especially diversity & cultural flavors in India.
This is a good place to start with if you want to learn Hindi as well if your kids like to spend quality summer time. My daughter had great time here and enjoyed learning Hindi.
Yeh camp achcha laga. Kids got to learn lots of Indian things.
My daughter really enjoyed the camp. This is the second time she has attended. The Camp is a gentle introduction to India & its culture.
My kids want to Jano India Camp for a week. They have learned a lot about India and Hindi. I am thankful to organizers.
My kids 13 & 6 really enjoyed the Camp esp. making Mango Lassi.
“I think the camp had nice daily activities and I am proud of the fluency they attained”
Our kids enjoyed the cooking the most and liked all the teachers. Making the books and the shirts were also a favorite. This was their second year and plan to come back next year.
Next year please include a more detailed description of what each week covers. We would have liked to enroll them in Incredible India if we had known what you are covering.
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.
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.
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!
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)
Thank you for bringing India alive
for my 5 year old and help my 12 year old get an outlet for his thirst for
knowledge about India and all things Indian and all in a fun, entertaining
environment. Thank you for showing my kids MY INDIA !
Usha’s Jano India camp is a
wonderful opportunity for children to learn about their India culture and
heritage. The teachers are wonderful and make learning about India fun. We will
definitely have our kids attend camps in future years. Many heartfelt thanks!
Our daughter really enjoyed attending Camp Jano India. Thank you so
much for it. We also liked the camp.
Camp Jano India curriculum was
very good for our son. He learned a lot in just 5 days! What was impressive was
that he learnt the national anthem by heart as well! Overall it exceeded my
expectations by leaps and bounds !
My daughter Ayesha loved this Jano India camp! Very informative!
She learned a lot within 5 days. It’s wonderful to be able to connect to your
roots! Great staff too.
This Jano India camp was a very motivation
experience for my kids. They learned a lot and had fun ! They were excited to
attend every day. We would enroll again!
Our son liked Camp Jano India very much. He has started to talk in Hindi! He can even read a little Hindi!
“Eduhindi camp was a well rounded fun and learning camp. It developed the “Conversational Hindi” skills, that made the students to connect from learning to real-life. Eduhindi Academic syllabus is the best suited for NRI Kids.”

“We are a non-Hindi speaking family, and we wanted our son Ashwin to get a flavor of Hindi as it is ournational language. We were very happy with the curriculum and excellent coaching provided by both teachers, Neetu and Chitra.They made learning fun, and the games and cartoons helped draw the kids to the language.To this day, he rates it as one of the best camps he attended last summer! And, that in turn encouraged us to enroll him in the after shool program in his elementary school, where he is currently learning to read, write and speak Hindi with Ms.Renu. Five stars to USHA and its teachers!!”

It was a very positive learning experience. Not only did Poorvi get more enthused about learning Hindi, she made some wonderful friends. She and her camp friends will be joining the year long classes. Before the camp started Poorvi was very reluctant to go to the camp. Her response at the end of the first day of camp was – “Mom I loved it, it was the best thing ever. Can I go to the camp on Sat and Sun and next week also?” We would recommend this camp to our friends. It was a wonderful experience for Poorvi and I would like to thank all the teachers for their efforts.

“Our 5 year old daughter loved the Hindi Camp. She went to several camps during her summer break, and this was her favorite camp. We were very pleased to see her sing the indian national anthem in Hindi and to see a Hindi play from all the kids. This was the first time she came back home and sang hindi poems to us. We are looking forward to putting her in this camp this year too.”
— Vijay and Sunita Agrawal
I’ve been suitably impressed by their ability to handle mixed age groups and mixed-level groups and keep the curriculum fresh and engaging. My daughter came home from her first class knowing how to write her name in Hindi and the Hindi club at her school has become somewhat of a poster-child for other language after-school programs. I showed her workbooks to my mom and cousin from Canada and they were very impressed – and these are people who teach extra-curricular Hindi programs in Ottawa/Toronto respectively. My husband and I would be very strong advocates/supporters of bringing this team in.
