Welcome to Camp Devereux
Marblehead’s Premier Swimming Camp Since 1932
Summer Camp 2024
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 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.

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 we were able offer admission to Camp Devereux exclusively to our Devereux School /D@W families as well as our incoming 2021/22 families.
Camp Devereux 2022 was a huge and safe success with every week of camp fully booked. We are extremely happy to share that, as last year, we will open admission to the wider community and really do look forward to welcoming everybody back to Camp Devereux for the summer of 2024.
Camp Devereux will operate Monday June 24th thru Friday August 9th 2024. Please note that there will be no camp on Thursday July 4th & Friday July 5th.
