Option 1 (Beginners) – East Vancouver / Burnaby

For young beginners to English, Pear Tree Education is offering ESL summer camps in Vancouver, Canada.

These are for children aged 5-7 and 8+ yrs and take place at our East Vancouver and Burnaby locations.

Whether you are visiting Canada or are new residents here, Pear Tree makes learning English easier by teaching the language within one of our fun theme-based courses. All of our camps enhance your child’s understanding of English while also developing their social and academic English abilities.

As our ESL camps run alongside our regular summer camps in East Vancouver and Burnaby, your child will have many opportunities to interact with Canadian students.

All of our teachers for these courses are fully-qualified school teachers who know how to adapt our Pear Tree courses at an appropriate ESL language level. Classes are organised based on age groups.

Please note: these are not residential camps. All students will need to stay with their family during their stay in Vancouver.
