    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.

With any Pear Tree spring camp, your child will spend as much time as possible outside, experiencing education hands-on in the open air. Your child will learn and experience diverse skills and goals, such as multidisciplines (science, math, social studies, and language arts), creativity, teamwork, technology, public speaking, sports, and critical thinking.

Furthermore, Pear Tree offers some of the most unique educational experiences, connecting education to the community!

If your child has never taken a course with Pear Tree, we’re about to change your understanding of education, too, because Pear Tree Education is Vancouver’s one and only 21st century private elementary school and learning centre. All of our courses are taught by fully-qualified, experienced school teachers passionate about our system of learning. We’re confident you won’t find a better educational summer camp.

Our Vancouver camps are located at Pear Tree Education, Suite 215 – 2678 West Broadway on the corner of Stephens St.

  • Tax

    All prices are subject to 5% GST.
    GST will also be charged on deposit payments (i.e. $105 total for one deposit).

  • Deposits

    Your child will be registered only when a $100 deposit has been received for the specific course(s) they are attending. Deposits are part of the course price, they are not additional.

    Deposits are non-refundable (except in the event that course is cancelled), but may be transferred to alternative courses. Deposits cannot be combined.

  • Switching Courses

    You are permitted to switch your current registration to one of our other courses up to 7 days before the start of the current course (subject to availability of alternative course).

  • Final Payment

    Full payment must be received 1 week before the start of the course. If credit cards details have been provided, payment will automatically be charged to your credit card. Otherwise, it is the customer’s responsibility to provide payment details by the due date.

  • Refunds

    Requests for refunds on full payments can be made in writing or in person up to 2 weeks (14 days) before the start of the applicable course(s). We will refund your money in the manner it was originally paid to us, less the $100 non-refundable deposit(s).

  • Behaviour

    If your child is asked to leave our course(s) due to bad behaviour, no refund will be issued. Expulsion from Pear Tree’s camps is a last-case course of action. Initially, Pear Tree will communicate with parents to try to deal with bad behaviour. However, if the child’s actions are repeated and/or a threat to themselves, other children, or the quality of Pear Tree’s camps, expulsion will be necessary.

  • Course Cancellations

    In the extremely-rare event that there are insufficient students registered in your course, Pear Tree Education reserves the right to cancel this course, but will offer you the choice of an alternative course or a full refund, including deposit payments. Pear Tree endeavours to provide parents with as much advanced notice as possible concerning cancellations so that you have the opportunity to find alternative camp arrangements.

  • Curricula Changes

    Curricula content may vary from the course description advertised.

  • Course Level

    Unless explicitly mentioned, all courses are intended for beginners. As such, we always start from the basics. It is unrealistic to expect our courses to begin at advanced level material, as we have no prior knowledge of the abilities of our students.

  • Drop-Off & Pick-Up Policies

    For welfare purposes, parents are responsible for ensuring that their children are dropped off and picked up by an adult – regardless of the age of your children. Unlike a regular school, Pear Tree students cannot arrive or leave unaccompanied, unless this has been agreed by Pear Tree’s directors.

    Unless you are registered for our Pre-Camp service, student arrival time should be no earlier than 8.50am. If children arrive earlier, parents must remain with their children until 8.50am, at which time the children can enter the classroom.

    Pear Tree Education reserves the right to charge a fee for after-camp supervision in the event of very late or persistently late pick up times.

    Pear Tree must be informed, in advance, of the details of any person (or changes in person) that will be picking up your child, whether this be a relative, nanny, or family friend. You can do this by email, or speak to one of Pear Tree’s managers.

    Parents are welcome to wait in our reception area until 9.30am, but cannot remain in the classroom once the class has begun.

    As with most public/private schools, students at Pear Tree are expected to be in class from 9am – 3pm. We do not offer the flexible hours of daycares.

  • Attendance

    Please note that we do not provide (partial) refunds if your child is unable to attend the full course (e.g. because of appointments, sickness or vacations).

  • Responsibility for Child

    Pear Tree is responsible for your child’s welfare/safety only when parents/guardians have left Pear Tree’s facilities.

  • Shyness / Anxiety

    If your child suffers from separation anxiety or a reluctance to meet new people or participate in new activities, it is the parent’s responsibility to arrange a tour of Pear Tree’s facilities before registering. This is to give your child the opportunity to become accustomed to our new surroundings, as well as for you to determine if your child will be comfortable attending our summer camps.

    Please note that we do not provide refunds on course payments or deposits in the event that your child is unwilling to participate in or attend our course(s).

    Parents are welcome to wait in our reception area until 9.30am, but cannot remain in the classroom once the class has begun.

  • Lunch Policy

    If you do not wish to choose Pear Tree’s ‘Hot Lunch’ option, you are responsible for providing your children with a packed lunch.

Pizzas, hamburgers and hot dogs – even homemade versions – are not permitted at Pear Tree.

  • '3-Bite' Rule

    As part of Pear Tree’s ‘Hot Lunch’ program and our endeavour to increase good eating habits habits, students are expected to sample every lunch and snack. Our general guideline is 3 bites of a variety of the ingredients, though the actual number of bites may be more/less depending upon the circumstances.
