Summer Camps: Week 3 Highlights
What a bumper action-filled week!
We’re a little late posting information about Week 3, but that doesn’t mean that the week wasn’t amazing! Quite the opposite, in fact!
Urban Gardener students had a truly hands-on week, planting beans and flowers. They did flower dissections, and created clay diagrams of the different parts of a plant. What is more, they created some amazing artwork using leaf rubbing. At the end of the week, the students went on a field trip to the Vancouver Demonstration Gardens!
The Film Studios students created numerous stop-motion films using different materials including lego, clay, and paper. Some links to these videos are at the end of this blog post.
Kids Can Cook! students had an awesome week with no less than 2 field trips! The first field trip was to Save-On Foods, where they had a Nutrition Tour given by Crystal Higgins of Nuvo Nutrition. The second field trip was a special finale to the week: a visit to Minami Japanese Restaurant in Yaletown. There, General Manager Hideaki took the students to the kitchen where the students got to participate in making traditional “aburi” pressed sushi (it’s flame seared with a blow torch!). They then got to take it back to Pear Tree and eat it for lunch before making their own sushi this afternoon! A special thanks to Patrick Rider, Mike Deas-Dawlish, and Hideaki Saito of Minami Restaurant. To check out Minami for yourself, go to http://minamirestaurant.com/
We’re confident that Pear Tree’s summer camps are at a level of quality unlike any others in Vancouver, providing unique experiences to Vancouver’s youth!
