What's New at the Lyceum


We are still accepting summer camp registrations. Give us a call at 604.733.1356 to sign up for next week and beyond!

Spaces available for next week:

Ages 4 to 7
1:30pm-4:30pm - August 4 to 7

Food brings us together through story - the stories we tell around the table, the stories of the people who prepared our food and the stories of the people who grew it.  During this camp we値l look at the choices that people make around food as we talk about local farmers and restauranteurs who are making a difference.  We値l interview a chef who supports sustainable food choices, resulting in a shopping list for our very own local menu which source from UBC Farm and local Farmer痴 Markets. On the final day of camp, we値l create our own feast using locally grown fruits and vegetables, and invite parents to join us to hear the stories that fed our creations.

Ages 9 to 12
6:00pm-9:00pm - August 4 to 7

In the spirit of the chapbook, we値l create, publish and promote our own mini comics.  This camp will explore the possibilities for storytelling that graphic images offer in any genre.  Over the course of the week, we値l sketch out and edit our stories, developing and finding joy in our individual styles.  Then, we値l work to create a finished product. Numerous graphic novels and comics will be shared to present opportunities for inspiration.

Summer camps continue throughout the summer.  Find out about all the camps were offering here.

We Solemnly Swear That We Are Up To No Good
Harry Potter Day
August 8 - 10:00am to 5:00pm (and beyond!)

Have you been hearing the pitter-patter of elf feet in our mezzanine?  The low moan of a ghost in our bathroom?  Wait...did that picture just move?  The rumors are true,  we are hosting a very special Harry Potter Day in August, for only the most die-hard Harry Potter fans.  This program is not in any brochure.  You must imagine information of it coming to you by owl.  

If you致e always dreamed of the day you would get your letter from Hogwarts, now痴 your chance. For one day only, on August 8 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, we値l use our imaginations to transform the Lyceum into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  We値l visit Snape痴 potions class to create fabulous glowing concoctions, and we値l decorate our own brooms, which we値l then use to play a game of Quidditch at a nearby park.  We値l also share favourite selections from the books themselves, tell Harry Potter-themed fortunes, participate in a  Bertie Bots Every Flavour Bean guessing game and visit Honeyduke痴 Sweet Shop.

Then, students are invited to join us for a movie night!  Beginning at 5:30 PM, we値l be serving pizza and screening Harry Potter movies until midnight.  Stay for one, stay for two, or stay for three, depending on your tolerance for late nights.

Come dressed in your best wizardry attire! Please bring a packed lunch, snack is provided.

The cost of the day is $100. To register send us an email at or give us a call at 604.733.1356.   Or send us an owl.

In case anyone asks, the code word is Lemon Drop.

Mischief managed!

Fall Registration

Imagine this.  It is September and all your friends are scrambling to sign their children up for classes.  They are frantic and remarkably sweaty, their eyes wide and red from stress and lack of sleep.  You, on the other hand, are sipping tea on your front porch, watching as the golden light of late summer fades from the sky.  You say things like, 鄭hh and 典his is the life.

That痴 because you already signed up for your Lyceum classes back in the summer. 

This dream could be a reality, if you give us a call at 604.733.1356 and let us know which bookclub, writers workshop, home learners class, or early childhood education program you壇 like to join us for in the fall.

Look at you, all superstar-like.
