A Little About Camp Devereux



The film was created by Henry MacLean. Henry has been a counselor at Camp Devereux for four years. He attends Emerson College where he will be a sophomore this fall.



Camp Devereux

Marblehead’s Premier Swimming Camp Since 1932

Children can enjoy our great outdoor pool!

Devereux School is pleased to offer Camp Devereux, a summer program for children ages 3 to 9. For decades, our young campers have enjoyed the serenity of our large 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, or organizing a basketball, soccer, or baseball game with friends. This summer, as in years past, participants in our camp will enjoy the use of our pool located on the grounds of our private playground and will receive daily swim instruction under the guidance of our certified lifeguards. Throughout the summer we will also provide activities that express Devereux School’s appreciation of arts, music, nature, and French.

Self expression through drama and the arts

We are thrilled that Elizabeth Laub will be at the helm of Camp Devereux again this year. A lifetime Marblehead resident, wife, and mother of two daughters, Elizabeth has been a fixture in the town of Marblehead for more than twenty years. Prior to owning and operating a Marblehead institution--The Seagull Gift Shop--Elizabeth dedicated her life to early-childhood education. “The nearly two decades I spent teaching at the Marblehead Children’s Center and Seaside Nursery School were among my most rewarding years,” says Elizabeth. “It is a bonus living in this small town, because even after all the years that have gone by, I still frequently bump into people I used to teach when they were young children, and I am able to see the individuals they have become.”

Celebrate summer with friends!

Elizabeth will be working this spring to improve and expand Devereux’s summer camp curriculum, utilizing her wealth of experience in the field of early childhood development and the expertise she has from serving on Tower School’s Enrichment Committee for seven years. A longtime Marblehead Public Schools Arts Council member and volunteer for several other local committees and organizations, Elizabeth’s history of investing in our community will undoubtedly prove invaluable to Devereux.

Our garden is finally coming into summer mode and we harvested greens and made a tasty vinaigrette and used our zucchinis to make a triple batch of delicious bread!

Camp Devereux Week #5

Week 5 at Camp Devereux was a bit wet.

We had a spotty wet week with rain and cool temps but this brought out the creative juices in our campers!

We kept busy with melty beads and made clever objects with duct tape. Our artwork with Miss Dee turned out beautifully!

Many campers enjoyed swimming in the rain and our life guards, Caitlyn and Megan, were just the best standing for hours in the rain.

Friday brought a picture perfect day and we look forward to a great week next week with summer temps returning.

Next up: The great outdoors!






Camp Devereux Week #4

It was another great week! The weather was perfect for summer camp and the pool was refreshing!

Our theme this week was It is easy being green. We made earth posters and bird feeders with Natalie and recycle art with Dee.

We enjoyed popsicles from Wyatt and finished the week with a camp wide scavenger hunt.

Enjoy your weekend!






Camp Devereux Week #3

Although it was a bit damp at times week #3 had us celebrating France in style!

We had songs, crafts , snacks and stories in and about France.

Friday was great fun when Heista came by with a pop up pyop studio.

Each camper was able to paint their own small piece of pottery to take home with them. It was a lot of fun and a great rainy day activity!

Next up: It is easy being green

Enjoy your weekend!






Week 2 was perfect!

The pool water heated up and even the littlest campers went in. We got ready for our Nations Birthday with decorating tee shirts with Miss Dee and visors with Laura.

We tended to our garden, had a red, white and blue snack of berries and toppings and finished out our rainy Friday afternoon by watching Moana!

Next up we celebrate France!






Week # 1 at Camp Devereux was a great start!

We welcomed old friends and met many new ones during week #1!

We started right in with art, gymnastics, music and, of course, the pool.

We brought back our old favorites with our potholders, friendship bracelets and lots off beading crafts.

We celebrated Caroline M.’s birthday with popsicles by the flag pole!

This is going to be a great summer!


Please note we are opened on Monday the 3rd but there will be no camp on Tuesday the 4th.
