The "Fear Factor" event is one of the many exciting events during the creative Color War competition.
Washington, CT - Devereux Glenholme delivered an exciting, action-packed summer program this year. The after-school, on-campus activities included the arts, drama, music, team sports, go-karts, equestrian program, and the creative, campus-wide competition known as color war. Various adventures such as action-park excursions, tent camping expeditions, canoe outings, and fishing trips were all the rage. The Arts Program delivered a spectacular theatrical performance along with field trips to jazz festivals and band competitions.

The success of the summer activities left the campus energized with the many Parents’ Weekend Auction activities. “Headmaster of School” remained the on-campus highlight along with Movie Madness and French Cooking with Ms. Bennison. While off-campus thrills of Six Flags, Dancing with the Stars, WFSB and NBC Studio Tours, Pool Parties, Palmer Ranch Trip, Broadway, STOMP and Mets games filled many days with excitement and enthusiasm for campers and staff. The numerous auction activities provide unique opportunities for students to enjoy adventures otherwise not available and are the result of the generosity and support of many Glenholme parents.

The Glenholme Summer Program is an exceptional learning environment for campers with special needs. It provides a rich menu of enjoyable and engaging camp activities designed to strengthen social skills while boosting academic proficiency. The planning and creative flow is already underway for Summer Camp 2010.
