Reviews and Quotes

"I found this camp conducted by the Shooting Star Foundation to be very interesting and I was very glad that it worked out very well for my Sixth grade child. All the student volunteers who volunteered at the camp were very good and they were exceptional in providing help with clearing any doubts that my child had. Both Math and the language arts question paper worksheets had a good mix of questions that the kids could answer at their own pace and I am really very happy to have enrolled my child in this camp. I would definitely recommend this camp to other parents."

"I loved this experience. I learned many new things and the tutors were very nice. At first, attending a math camp during spring break did not seem like a lot of fun to me. Boy was I wrong! I can’t wait to come back next year!!!"

"This organization helped me realize the true meaning of happiness is not receiving, but giving"

“6 years ago I was inspired to start Shooting Stars Foundation because I realized that as students in the United States, we have a huge amount of educational and economic privilege that students in other countries don’t have. This was our attempt to equalize the playing field“
