Virgin Island Family Vacations

Enjoy Kids’ Camp, Family Accommodations, & More

The Buccaneer, family-owned and operated for 70 years, embraces generations with family activities and accommodations. Named "One of the Best Family Resorts" by Forbes, the resort earns its reputation by providing a luxurious yet comfortable country-club setting conducive to enjoying a relaxed family vacation in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

With 340 self-contained tropical acres, The Buccaneer is a natural playground for all ages. Three glorious beaches provide the backdrop for days of snorkeling, kayaking and lounging. Never crowded, the expansive grounds allow children plenty of space to run, splash and play. Golf, tennis and free learn-to-scuba classes are on-property for teens while the younger set (four to twelve-year olds) gathers for the complimentary Kids' Camp. Soccer, basketball and volleyball games are beachside and fun for the entire family. Around St. Croix, families delight in sailing and snorkeling at the Buck Island National Park, suitable for all ages and swimming abilities. Horseback riding, kayak tours, island tours, shopping in Christiansted are just a sampling of the many great activities for everyone to enjoy.

Family accommodations come in several varieties. Each spacious guest room fits up to four people with two Queen beds. Some rooms offer even more space and can comfortably accommodate a family of five with a window-seat bed or a cot.

Family cottage suites, the most popular family accommodations, feature two bedrooms and one bath, complete with a spacious front lawn. The Ficus and Frigate Suites offer families a prime pool and oceanfront location along with two rooms for extra space and privacy. Deluxe Oceanfront rooms connect and are perfect for families seeking generous space, a shoreline location and privacy. The ultimate in beachfront comfort is offered in the Luxury Beachside Doubloons.

Kids' Camp Children's Activities at The Buccaneer

Young Buccaneers, ages four to 12, are invited to the daily, year-round, complimentary program of age-appropriate, supervised, organized activities. Activities vary daily, but can include beach and pool games, crab races, treasure hunts and sand castle building. Arts and crafts, board games and foosball offered in the Kids' Camp room gives young Buccaneers respite from the heat of the day.

Pre-ordered lunch, charged to the guest's room, and complimentary snacks throughout the day keep campers well energized and hydrated.

Parents are requested to sign up for camp the day prior in order to maintain a preferred camper-to-counselor ratio as safety is the top priority. Campers may participate for the whole day, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or any shorter length of time desired.

The Buccaneer offers many family activities in addition to the Kids' Camp for families with children and teens of all ages.
