    Pets (Ages 5-6)

    Kids love pets! But whether they are dogs, cats, hamsters, or fish, owning a pet comes with big responsibilities!

    In Pear Tree’s ‘Pets’ camp, students will learn about different kinds of pets, what their needs are, and how to interact with them appropriately.

    Students will work on amazing mini-projects that incorporate science, math, and arts & crafts. Some activities include making pet finger puppets, math games related to feeding and caring for pets, drama activities, reading picture books about pets, and experiments about foods pets like.

    Depending on COVID restrictions, we may invite families to do short visits with their pet.

    Whether you’re already sporty or an aspiring athlete, this week is a great way to get outside with new friends and get moving!

    Each day, there will be skill-based activities related to specific sports, and many opportunities for collaborating with peers. We’ll be playing games like Capture the Flag and California Kick Ball, as well as more traditional sports like tennis and soccer. Not only that, but we will be doing different fitness-based activities to improve our strength and stamina! Each day, different students will have opportunities to model and explain these activities, which help public speaking and leadership skills.

    This week will be held outdoors, rain or shine!

Each day will be filled with different gardening activities, from learning to recognize weeds from plants, to how much to water, to different kinds of seeds. Every day, we’ll spend a significant amount of time outdoors. We’ll also use the flowers we see outside to inspire observational painting, and use our math skills to calculate numbers of seeds we need, or basic plots of the garden to plant in!

    We’ll plan a different seed daily, so you’ll have a number of seedlings to take home at the end of the week. We’ll also visit one or more local community gardens, to learn to recognize different kinds of plants and vegetables.

    Our Living Oceans (Ages 10-14) – 4 x SPACES REMAINING!

    Attention future marine biologists, wildlife lovers, and avid beachcombers! Are you fascinated with the ocean and the life within it? Are you worried about the impact of human activities on our ocean sustainability?

    Despite the fact that the ocean is right at our doorstep, there is still so much to explore and discover within it. Would you be surprised to learn that the oceans house the world’s largest invertebrate (the Colossal squid, topping out at a whopping 14 meters), and yet we know almost nothing about them?

    But the oceans are so much more than a source of facts and oddities. Oceans are fascinating, complex, and incredible ecosystems, vital to the health of our planet, our economy, and our culture.

    Learn about ecosystems here on the coast, see live animals at the Aquarium, research and present about human impact on the oceans, and even sea kayak at Jericho Beach!

    As this course includes a field trip to Vancouver Aquarium and a sea kayaking lesson at Jericho Beach, there is an additional fee of $50.



    Fairytale Theatre (Ages 5-6)

    Once upon a time at Pear Tree, we had a camp about Fairy Tales! Kings, evil stepmothers, princesses and magic are some of the topics we will explore.

    Some of the exciting activities we’ll do include planting Jack’s magic beans, playing math games related to the different fairytales, creating playdough gingerbread men, and engaging in dramatic play related to fairy tales. We will even read fractured fairy tales! This is an excellent course to develop speaking skills in a fun and creative way!

With any Pear Tree summer course, 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.
