Island Vibes Camps
IVSC Founder and Camp Director Vernon Araujo was first introduced to camp when he worked as a camp counselor and coach for his father Adalio Araujo, who started a soccer day camp on St. Thomas in 1998. Vernon also had the opportunity to attend overnight summer camps in Florida and New York as a teenager, experiences which irreversibly changed his life both on and off the field. Island Vibes Summer Camp was created to bring a unique summer experience to the U.S. Virgin Islands so that young athletes may have the opportunity to improve their skills and explore new cultures with Paradise as the backdrop. IVSC aims to help each camper achieve their highest level of athletic ability through healthy competition, sportsmanship and incorporating the philosophy of Olympism.
Offering sports and various cultural activities in a Caribbean setting, the camp is an amazing experience every camper will want to write home about! The objectives of the camp are to offer access to a world class coaching staff, emphasize the importance of team work and environmental responsibility, create a larger sports network for Virgin Islands athletes, encourage campers to consider UVI for furthering their education, expose campers to Virgin Islands culture and experiences and create a safe and structured environment for campers to make friends from around the world!
