Spring Break Camps
Maybe you found the map in a mysterious-looking trunk in your great aunt’s attic. Maybe a wizard knocked on your door one evening and gave it to you. Maybe you inherited it from an elderly uncle you always suspected was a pirate. However you got it, it’s yellow and faded. You squint in the dim light, trying to read its markings. The names that reveal themselves are familiar ones — Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Neverland, The Isle of Berk — and beside each, a large black X. Treasure!
About Spring Break at the Lyceum
At the Lyceum we believe that every book contains treasure. Whether it’s an unforgettable character who feels like a new friend, or an idea you never would have thought of on your own, stories glitter with riches beyond our wildest dreams. During spring break, each student will be given a map to classic works of literature, which they can collect stamps on as we set off to find the treasures these great books contain. As we go, we’ll use our readings as inspiration for a host of priceless artistic creations. Students don’t need to have read these books before attending camp — our program is designed to work as both an introduction for newcomers, or a celebration for those who have read before. Let a love of Harry Potter or How to Train Your Dragon bring you into our adventure, and then find new favourites to explore and love along the way!
Just as books are adaptable — pick them up, put them down, take them with you — so are we. If your family isn’t able to commit to the full arc of a week, each day of our our program is designed to stand alone. You tell us your schedule, and we’ll work with you to design a program for your child or youth that will be inspiring, informative and engaging.
