A Birthday Scholarship Gift Project
A story about our incredible Lyceum family

This spring, Benjamin, a twelve year old member of our Lyceum community, used his birthday to collect donations for the Lyceum scholarship fund. In particular, Benjamin wants to support an Insects in the City Summer Camp scholarship for a four-year-old boy.

Why? Because Benjamin has come to the Lyceum since he was three, and because he and his little brother both loved that Insects in the City camp. Benjamin's enjoyment of his experience here is now a gift he is giving to another child.

Thank you, Benjamin, from the bottoms of all of our hearts. Thank you to all the incredible families, donors and supporters who have helped to give a gift of learning and experience to a child over the last few years.

Coming soon: Our new Scholarships and Donations page, with new information about different scholarships and ways of giving.

Mosaic Memory Games

Now available at the Lyceum, our very own Mosaic Memory Card game - a fun and vibrant way to test you memory skills! There are four different sets to collect - combine them all to make a GIANT memory game!

At $5 per set they're a unique small gift - a perfect little present!


As many of our fabulous summer volunteers head off on well earned holidays, we embark on our search for more amazing people, adults and teens, to support our Summer Programs.
If you love literature and art and want to pass along that love to the next generation of readers and creators, this opportunity is for you. Our summer time slots are 8:30 am -12:30 pm; 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm; or 5:30 - 9:30 pm each week. Of course we appreciate help whenever it is offered.
