Discover St. Croix Camp (STX)
Discover St. Croix Camp is a summer day camp program that engages the next generation of preservationists, historians, and educators through five weeks of immersion in St. Croix's culture and history. At Discover St. Croix Camp, children ages 6 to 12 experience much more than tie-dye shirt activities and trips to the beach (although we do those things as well!). Our campers research their family history, prepare traditional foods, explore uses for native plants, and make Crucian folk instruments. They even learn Quadrille, Quelbe, Calypso, and Cariso! Discover St. Croix Camp activities and workshops are led by Crucian tradition bearers who actively practice and demonstrate their crafts year-round at Estate Whim Museum. By the end of his or her Discover St. Croix Camp experience, your child will have developed a deep appreciation for the people, places, and things that set Crucian culture apart from any other.
Discover Our Virgin Islands Camp (STT)
Campers on St. Croix are not the only ones who get to have fun! Discover Our Virgin Islands Camp is the St. Thomas-based counterpart to the Discover St. Croix Camp program. Thomian and Johnian tradition bearers guide 6- to 12-year-old Discover Our Virgin Islands campers as they learn about the crafts, music, foodways, natural resources, and cultural resources that are unique to the islands of St. Thomas and St. John.
