I am a teacher, and I think the Pear Tree summer camp program was a wonderfully educational experience for my son.

We registered our son in every single week of this summer program. Every day, he came back with some amazing things!! I have told a lot of friends about your program! Nothing but praise.


My daughter has been really enjoying your camp! I am so impressed by how much she’s learned and how much fun she’s having. Big Kudos to your team for creating such fun and informative camps!


I believe my daughter benefited a lot from attending the camps so a big thank you is in order for all the staff at Pear Tree.


I felt wonderful reading about Pear Tree and the 21st century educational methods of helping students to learn. I’m impressed by your teaching skills and creativity. It’s amazing. I loved watching your videos on YouTube and showed it to my school staff. They to were impressed with your educational ideas to enhance learning.
Good job. Hats off to you and your team.


I am very impressed by your program. My son loves going to your camps and has a craving to learn more. I believe he is proud of what he learns with you and feels good about himself. This has not really been his experience at school.

Just want to let you know that my daughter has come home every day completely excited about her experiences at Pear Tree. She is absolutely loving the program! What more can we ask for?


It was a great experience for my daughter. Now she is asking me if she can go back to Pear Tree this summer ???? Thanks everyone.


My son and daughter had a great time at camp last week. 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 a little. Please pass on my enthusiastic and positive feedback to your teachers and to Alexis.


My daughters have both been raving about Pear Tree’s camps — which is really saying something, believe me — I usually get a lot of “I don’t want to go”s when they’re signed up for camps!
