About Pear Tree’s Pro-D Day Camps Vancouver
Pear Tree Education is about to change your idea of Pro-D day camps. With any Pear Tree Pro-D day camp, your child will spend as much time as possible out of the classroom, experiencing education hands-on in the open air. Your child will learn and experience diverse skills and objectives, such as multidisciplines (science, math, social studies, and language arts), creativity, leadership, teamwork, technology, public speaking, critical thinking, etc. Furthermore, we connect education to real life; after all, this is the Pear Tree method!
And, if your child has never taken a Pro-D day camp with Pear Tree before, we’re about to change your understanding of education, too, because Pear Tree is Vancouver’s first 21st century K-7 private elementary school and learning centre. All of our courses are taught by fully-qualified, experienced school teachers, who are also passionate about Pear Tree’s system of learning.

“I believe my daughter benefited a lot from attending the camps so a big thank you is in order for all the staff at Peartree.”
“My son has really enjoyed his week at your spring camp! This morning he was looking glum and I asked why the long face. He said it was because today was the last day of camp L!!.”
“My son and daughter had a great time at camp. As a parent I was also thrilled with how happy and stimulated they both seemed after. They were proud of their work and I had the sense that the camp allowed them to stretch their creative muscles.”
As educational experts, Pear Tree’s spring camps have a balance of indoor and outdoor time. As part of both our course and recreation time, we ensure that our students go outside every day.
For outdoor time, Pear Tree has a 1:5 staff/student ratio.

- If you require the Hot Lunch option, this must be booked and paid for no later than 1 week before the start of the associated course.
- Pear Tree has a 3-bite policy for its Hot Lunch program in order to ensure that every child eats and tries at least this quantity of food.
- If your child is asked to leave our course(s) due to very bad behaviour, no refund will be issued.
- In the event that there are insufficient students registered in your course, Pear Tree Education reserves the right to cancel or reschedule this course, but will offer you the choice of an alternative course or a full refund.
- Curricula content may vary from the course description advertised.
- For welfare purposes, parents are responsible for ensuring that their children are dropped off and picked up by an adult – regardless of the age of your children. Unlike a regular school, Pear Tree students cannot arrive or leave unaccompanied (i.e. without a responsible adult).
- Unless you are registered for our Pre-Camp service, student arrival time should be no earlier than 8.50am. If children arrive earlier, parents must remain with their children until 8.50am, at which time the children can enter the classroom.

- If you do not wish to choose Pear Tree’s ‘Hot Lunch’ option, you are responsible for providing your children with a healthy packed lunch. As part of our educational philosophy of connecting education real life, this lunch must be a healthy, well-balanced meal (i.e. one that contains complex carbohydrates, vegetables, protein, healthy fats, and ideally essential fatty acids). Pizzas, hamburgers and hot dogs – even homemade versions – are not permitted at Pear Tree. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding our food policy.
- Due to our general commitment to all of our students, it is difficult for Pear Tree staff to dedicate time to purchasing meals for individual students, because we would have less staff available for the other child. Furthermore, Pear Tree does not support and will not partake in the purchase of any fast foods or any foods that Pear Tree deems to be unhealthy or inadequately nutritious for your child.
- Failure to abide by the terms & conditions above could leave to the cancellation of your registration with no refunds on course payments.
