Discover St. Croix Camp engages the next generation of preservationists, historians and educators and fosters relationships marked by trust, respect, loyalty and willingness to accept guidance.
Participants engage in exploring family history, time-honored traditions and core values of Crucian culture through hands-on workshops led by tradition bearers, visits to sacred sites and places of cultural and historical significance.
Campers prepare traditional foods, learn to create traditional crafts and toys, identify and describe uses for native plants, display their family research, demonstrate Quadrille and Bamboula dancing, Quelbe, Calypso and Cariso, make traditional instruments, and give oral and written reports on people, places and things valued in Virgin Islands culture.

Camp is held for five weeks in the summer on the 11-acre site of the Estate Whim Museum, with possible one-week sessions during Christmas and other school breaks.
