Why choose Island Vibes?

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 teach campers the fundamentals of sports, healthy competition and sportsmanship through active play.
