A Little About 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.
