Wetland Wonders ’20 (Ages 5-6)
For 2020, we have revamped our Wetland Wonders course with some new and existing activities!
Ponds and wetlands are an important part of Vancouver’s ecosystem, and as young biologists, we’ll study some of wetlands features up close.
We will learn about the life cycle of a frog, study water plants, observe local birds, and do pond dipping! Each day will have a different focus and we will explore through a whole host of hands-on science activities, as well as art and literature.
This course includes 2 x field trips to a local pond, where we can observe a wetland habitat’s features.
Food, Glorious Food! (Ages 7-9)
Yes, food is glorious! Vancouver is such a “foodie” city, with so many different dishes and fresh,
healthy things to eat. In this course, we’ll introduce students to basic nutrition, prepare a dish each class, learn about fitness and healthy living. We will do blind taste-testing, make food art, and even take food photography! Students will gain an appreciation for trying new things and how food impacts their body.
PLEASE NOTE: Pear Tree’s healthy Hot Lunch Program is mandatory for this course, as food is provided throughout the week. Therefore, an additional $68 must be added to the camp price.
Makerspaces (Ages 10-14)
In Pear Tree’s Makerspace camp, students work on collaborative, technology-driven projects that require the creative use of resources and multidisciplinary knowledge.
Taking place over a 5-day week, your child will explore circuits, music, art, and robotics. Some
of the technology we will use will include: Makey Makey, Little Bits, Snap Circuits, and a Dash robot.
