Summer Camp Scholarships

Leary Scholarship

For over a decade the Patrice and Rita Leary Foundation has supported Lakeside’s early childhood environmental education programs. This support has allowed us to double early childhood programs and to impact nearly one hundred pre-K age children each summer, including scholarships for children from low-income families. 

In 2016, the Patrice and Rita Lear Foundation dissolved but not without leaving a final and remarkable gift of $169,000 to the Friends to be used to sustain and grow these programs into the future. A portion of the gift has already been used to create the Leary Family Endowment Fund with the purpose of providing low-income students high-quality science immersion experiences at Lakeside.

Thanks to the generosity of the Leary family, students are exposed to learning experiences they may not have access to, and Lakeside staff is inspired to innovate, expand and improve learning experiences. On behalf of the children, families, and educators impacted, we thank the Patrice and Rita Leary Foundation for their remarkable gift and sustaining support.
