Spring Break Literary Workshops

Spring Break Web Splash 2023.png

Thank you for joining us for Spring Break 2023! 

We have not yet planned our journey for Spring Break 2024, but you can peruse our previous destinations below or view our Spring Break 2023 brochure here to get a sense of what literary treasure is in store. 

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 words that reveal themselves are familiar - The Berkshire Downs, Wonka's Chocolate Factory and Hogwarts (of course) - and beside each a special pin acts as a passport stamp. Collect one or all eleven limited edition pins (a pin for each destination).

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 our Spring Break programs, we’ll be treating classic works of literature as the exciting locations of this buried treasure, adventuring into them to see what glittering hoards we’re able to uncover.  Each day of our spring break program is devoted to one book, allowing us plenty of time to read selections, and use these readings as the jumping off points for exciting artistic creations, and adventurous outdoor forays. Children don’t need to have read these books before attending the Lyceum - our program is designed to work both as an introduction for newcomers, and a celebration for those who have visited these pages before. 

Our program schedule is customizable. Your child can come for a day or two of our programming, join us for a week, or join us for the entire two weeks. Each day stands alone, but also links thematically to all the other days. This makes it easy to drop in for a day of Harry Potter magic, or Pratchett escapism, but it also means that those joining us for longer benefit from a rich and layered experience.
