When learning is fun, children discover the world! Your Elementary-aged child will experience the joys of nature, science, and the arts. During educational day trips across the beautiful island of St. Croix, children will learn about USVI flora and fauna, conservation, agriculture, and Crucian history and culture. IMG_2992

Elementary Program: Percussion & Arts (Ages 6 to 12)

Join Orff-Schulwerk Instructor DJ Sullivan in this rhythmically-inspired program! The students are immersed in sounds and arts for this popular 2-week series! IMG_2985

Children learn about the world of percussion – rhythm, syncopation, how to create and produce percussive sounds, how to read music, and how to make a percussion instrument. Over the course of 2-weeks, the students develop a percussion ensemble, culminating in a concert for friends and family!

Additional Information

EcoAdventure & Bush Skills

We love our Eco-adventure and Bush Skills weeks with Mount Victory Camp, however, this year we are unable to offer that program. Matt has an exciting opportunity to work with The Tracker School this summer, and Carmen is expecting a baby! With all the changes happening around the island, we decided that rather than re-inventing a good program, we’d take a summer off. We want to wish Matt & Carmen of Mount Victory Camp all the best for Summer 2018! We look forward to offering this incredible experience again in the future.
