Dear Mr.Rakesh and Mr Ronny,
Greetings from Nalanda International School
It gives me immense pleasure to share that the class 11 camp to Kambre has had a different impact on our students and educators. The students have thoroughly enjoyed all the activities they were exposed too. They also shared the interactive sessions which were handled by your team. The exposure provided to them has lifted them to a whole new level of enthusiasm, energy, confidence and attitude.
I believe through this programme we as a school has been able to achieve few of our objectives in disciplining students and helping them introspect themselves.
A lot positive has been shared by our students, educators, parents and we truly appreciate the involvement of your team in making the programme a success.
We look forward for such programmes from your organisation that contributes to the true growth of a child.

"My senior girls had been going to hill destinations for 6 years in a row. When they heard they were going to Sitlakhet- again in the hills, there were cold, sullen vibes. But when they returned, I received the warmest thanks ever ! In their report to the rest of the school during assembly, they declared Youreka to be the most hands on, most relevant, most REAL experience ever ! They felt empowered to go out into the world - not just to survive, but to make a difference. They strongly recommended the experience to every senior batch because schooling is not complete without the Youreka experience."

In the 5 years that Youreka has engaged with Oakridge, children have had some of the most memorable experiences in a wilderness setting. The programs have worked well in helping children connect with nature and boost their confidence. The Youreka team is student focussed and I am confident with their safety approach and flow of various activities.

The senior students from CIRS have been participating in the Youreka camp since last three years. Children enjoy the adventure camps organised by Youreka. As an organisation they have a very good structure that both their planning and execution is remarkable. They come out with a lot of innovations that Children and teachers have always given a very positive feed back about the program. The camps objectives are well laid out and there is a lot of learning for children. All schools should give an exposure of this kind to their students.
Wishes to Youreka

I feel fortunate to have been associated so closely with the Youreka team and have had life changing experiences with them. Youreka is not just an adventure trip but a life changing experience- a must for all who want to get to know themselves. Each day at the camp unfolds a new facet of one’s personality and it won’t be wrong to say that Youreka is a journey of self discovery!

Our students and teachers were absolutely delighted with Youreka program. In fact teachers were extremely happy and quoted that they experienced one of the best programs.

One testimonial is that I keep seeing kids wearing your t-shirts. In fact, I walked behind one this morning and was thinking about "Play The Real Thing" as your slogan.
I would also say that since we have asked Youreka to take over our outdoor education program with the senior program, the level of satisfaction with the program has increased noticeably with students and teachers. Now that we use it as part of the FA assessments, it is important that we are in synch regarding the purpose of the experience in terms of its impact on the development of our students. As you know, we base our school's philosophy partly on the works of Kurt Hahn, who believed strongly in the importance of a wilderness experience that provides a physical, mental and emotional challenge to the student as essential to enhance leadership and character skills--but the students have to enjoy the experience and it has to be managed well in order for the growth to occur. (That's my belief anyway.) If they hate it because it is too hard-core, they will never want to experience the wilderness again, let alone be willing to challenge themselves, and I appreciate Youreka for striking that balance.
"The Doon School has been working with Youreka for several years now, mainly to conduct Leadership workshops for the Prefects. However, realizing the value their workshops add to our students lives, we now have an year round programme for the entire school based on their E-STAR programme. The Youreka workshops have brought about a shift in the focus of the students that is greatly appreciated by the school and parents."
