Parent Testimonials

I just wanted to take a moment to send in some positive feedback to you and the Pear Tree team. My husband and I are very impressed with all the things he has learned so far at Pear Tree. 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.

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.

Cristie

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.

Nicki

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!
