About Pear Tree’s Spring Camps Vancouver

Pear Tree Education is about to change your idea of Vancouver spring camps. With any Pear Tree spring 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 spring 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.”

Spring Camp Vancouver – Course Options

Week 1: March 13th – 17th

Fairy Tale Theatre (Ages 5-6)

Once upon a time at Pear Tree, we had a camp about Fairy Tales! Kings, evil stepmothers, princesses and magic are some of the topics we will explore.

You’ll build houses for the Three Little Pigs, bake gingerbread men, and engage in dramatic play related to fairy tales. We will even read fractured fairy tales!

This is an excellent course to develop reading and speaking skills in a fun and creative way!

Medieval Times (Ages 7-9)

Hear ye, Hear ye, all Lords and Ladies! Join us for a week of medieval times.

During the camp, you’ll make shields, create a crown, design a personal crest, build a castle, and design a mini catapult.

This course also includes many drama and public speaking activities, with the opportunity to perform like a person from the Medieval times!

N.B. This class will not participate in any activities related to violence, so no need to ask!

Graphic Novels ‘17 (Ages 10-14)

Come and experience Pear Tree’s amazing updated version of its already much-loved Graphic Novels course!

Taking advantage of some amazing changes in technology, your child will get to create graphic novels on a level of sophistication never before imaginable and with unlimited potential.

In this course, we combine literacy, acting, photography, art and technology to create our own high-quality digital graphic novels to take home at the end of the course.

 

Week 2: March 20th – 24th

Salmon Project (Ages 5-6)

Do you want to feel iike a biologist and study the life cycle of an animal up-close? Pear Tree is raising 55 Coho salmon!

In this course, we’ll learn about the salmon life cycle, and do lots of hands-on activities, art, and experiments to develop your science skills.

Students participating in this course are invited to join us with their parents in releasing the salmon at Beaver Creek in Stanley Park at the beginning of April!

Mixed Media Art (Ages 7-9)

Mixed Media art allows students to explore a variety of art mediums and techniques using previously used products such as newspapers, papier mache, clay, buttons, and even toilet paper!

They will be reading age-appropriate books about famous artists and create works inspired by them.

Students will take home a variety of art at the end of the week.

Artificial Intelligence (Ages 10-14)

Through the exploration of the short story ‘Supertoys Last All Summer Long’ by Brian W. Aldiss (that inspired the film ‘A.I.’), Pear Tree will look at various aspects of artificial intelligence.

Pear Tree’s ‘A.I.’ camp will expand your child’s math capabilities: spacial reasoning and problem solving.Through various apps, your child will develop a foundational understanding of programming, and will apply that to problem-solving challenges using our very own Dash robot nicknamed ‘Peary’!

‘A.I.’ encapsulates perfectly Pear Tree’s interdisciplinary educational method.

Outdoor Time!

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.
