What preparations are needed for my child to attend online classes?
As a parent do I need to sit with my child during class?
For pre-school group (age 3 -5yrs) and grade 1 - we recommend a parent to be present in the same room
Is the camp fee for the whole 8 weeks?
Yes, it covers Mon - Friday of all 8 weeks
Can I do weekly payment instead?
It is an entire package and what we intend to impart needs full 8 weeks sessions for kids to learn and assimilate and if they miss class, especially subjects like vedic ganit or samskritam, they will find it hard to catch up
Are you going to share class recordings if my child misses any class?
No. We need permission from every parent to record the session and since it is online and kids are involved,we cannot share recordings without explicit permission from all parents in the camp. We cannot promise, but teachers can follow up with the kid/parents if they miss 1 or 2 sessions to provide info to catch up.

Refund Policy: Parents can request refund for any reason within the 1st week of the program. No refund is offered after June 19, 2020 / 5PM EST.
What is the language of instruction??
English will be the language of instruction for all classes, except Samskritam class where we have trained teachers who will use Simple Samskritam and tried and trusted delivery method to communicate with children in simple samskritam. Please be assured that our teachers have experience communicating with non Samskrit speaking kids with Samskritam and you will be surprised how kids pick up basics of spoken Sanskritam in a short time.
What is a make-up session?
Due to late school closure, if your child misses 1st week sessions, Aum teachers will provide catch-up class for missed days at no extra cost. Catch-up sessions will be on June 20 & 21 covering Vedic Ganit/Samskritam and other critical subjects. You will receive further details of class delivery upon registration. Beyond the 1st week, we will not extend catch-up session benefits. For any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Can I pick and choose Morning/Evening sessions or some weeks?
Summer Camp syllabus is based on a theme. We suggest every student attends all the sessions to get complete benefit of all the sessions. E.g. 8 week of Yoga will teach them not only many physical asana but also all the benefits and background/origin/intension of those asana etc. Therefore, one cannot pick or choose the sessions.
