Welcome to Camp Devereux
Marblehead’s Premier Swimming Camp Since 1932
Summer Camp 2021
Devereux School is pleased to offer Camp Devereux, a summer program for children ages 3 to 9. Since 1932, our young campers have enjoyed the serenity of our large private playground surrounded by trees offering natural shade. It is a wonderful summertime environment ideal for traditional summer activities such as designing a sand castle, relaxing on a blanket, making gimp and bead jewelry, cooling down with our slip & slide, or organizing a basketball or soccer game with old and new friends alike. Campers can also help out in the vegetable garden or observe butterflies in our newly planted butterfly patch. Campers will enjoy the use of our newly refurbished and heated pool and will receive daily swim instruction under the guidance of our two certified lifeguards. Throughout the summer we provide activities that express Devereux School’s appreciation of the arts, music, nature, yoga, gymnastics, and French.
Mme. Virginie provides French Instruction, Miss Dee serves as our art instructor, Miss Amanda runs gymnastics, Mr. Joe teaches guitar and Miss Marina provides piano lessons. Senior Devereux School staff members, Elizabeth, Paul, Virginie, and Kasey are all present throughout the summer and oversee and instruct our Camp Counselors and Counselors in Training, the majority of whom are former Camp Devereux campers themselves.
Camp Devereux is nut free!

Enjoy our two playgrounds, each respectively designated for age appropriate play.
Campers can even help out in the vegetable garden or observe butterflies in our newly planted butterfly patch.
Campers can express their creativity in any number of ways including making arts & crafts using natural and sustainable items, designing and creating bead art, learning to knit and create pot holders and place mats, constructing sandcastles or fairy houses, learning to jump rope or hula hoop, or cooking and playing house in our three play houses.
Come to Camp Devereux and celebrate summer with friends! Campers can braid gimp and make friendship bracelets, play chess and other board games, feed and tend to Napoleon our school rabbit, make chalk art while listening to educational podcasts, enter our pie eating contest and try to beat our undefeated and reigning champion, the formidable Mme. Virginie!
In 2020, for the first time in 87 years, we were unable to offer Camp Devereux.
However, after putting all of our efforts towards a safe reopening of Devereux School for the 2020/21 academic year and after much discussion and input from our entire community, we have decided to run Camp Devereux 2021.
However, we have come to the very difficult decision of limiting admission to Camp Devereux exclusively to our current Devereux School /D@W families as well as our incoming 2021/22 families.
Given how well our 100% in-person schooling has evolved so far this year, we believe this course of action to be the most prudent way for Devereux to be able to offer both Camp Devereux as well as a safe transition into the 2021/22 academic year for all of our families and staff.
Whilst we are fully aware that this decision will come as a huge disappointment to the Marblehead community at large, we really do look forward to welcoming everybody back to Camp Devereux for the summer of 2022.
Thank you so much for your understanding.
