Summer Programs and Volunteering Opportunities at Christianne's Lyceum

As summer approaches, I expect many Point Grey Secondary School students will be looking for exciting and safe activities within our neighbourhood. New to the Lyceum team, I am impressed with the Lyceum’s unique summer offerings for students from age 3 to 18. Our distinctive programs expose participants to new fields of thought and imagination. From painting en plein air to crafting beeswax candles (and visiting some bees), playing Quidditch to concocting faerie potions, cultivating a garden in Hobbiton to writing on the sands of Vancouver’s stunning beaches, there is something for everyone, including volunteer opportunities for older students.


The Lyceum is a learning centre focused on the exploration of new and engaging ways to engage with writing and the arts, rooted in Reggio-inspired practice.  Community is a pillar of all that we do. We are committed to creating connections with the schools, families, and vendors we collaborate with and we are committed to leaving traces of these relationships in our physical community, such as through art installations like Starry, Starry Day. The Lyceum helps the young members of our community create a positive identity, feel equipped with myriad skills, and develop a sense of personal efficacy. 


Another core practice of the Lyceum is nurturing a social conscience by engaging in discourse about tough and tender subjects through explorations of literature and art. We view all members of our community as competent individuals, whether they are one or ninety. As a result, we do not shy away from exploring the complexities of our world today. 


Our summer camps provide a special opportunity to engage deeply with a child for five consecutive days, create memories, and leave traces of our shared learning. In concert with Vancouver schools, such as Point Grey Secondary, we work to support and augment the learning experiences you provide to your students.


Attached is our summer brochure. Please feel free to share it as you deem appropriate. I am happy to drop off a hard copy to add to the school community board, taking into account the Covid-19 protocols. To learn more you can visit our website, send us an email at lyceum@christiannehayward.com, or call us at 604 733 1356. 


The Lyceum strives to create a welcoming atmosphere for students of all abilities and is committed to the health and safety of our community. Our Covid-19 measures are outlined in the summer brochure and you can also read more about the Lyceum’s response to Covid-19 on the website.


We hope to hear from you soon and please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!


All the best, 

Charlotte Bisanz
Marketing and Program Assistant
