Camille George

British Virgin Islands Cook

Visions Service Adventures Executive Director Katherine Dayton

Camille George was born and raised on the beautiful island of Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. Her culinary venture started with watching her mom, Nidia George, happily feeding the community in need. Cooking, baking and helping others was the motto of her household. Camille fell in love with cooking and eventually attended Florida Culinary School in West Palm Beach. She graduated in 2001, moved back home, and in 2003 started Saucy’s, a popular restaurant on the main drag in “The Valley” of Virgin Gorda and not far from VISIONS home base. She has been following in her mom’s footsteps ever since.

Camille is one of six siblings and her family has been a central piece of VISIONS programs since our first season on the island in 1992. Her parents, Nidia and Edwin “Speedy,” were the founders of Speedy’s ferry service. They were successful business people, respected community members, and philanthropic toward island needs. Camille has taught those same values to her three sons.

In addition to raising her own family, Camille takes care of us every summer! She first cooked for VISIONS in 2005, and can make most anything from scratch. Her skills range from traditional island fare of Johnny Cakes to vegetarian meals and special items for allergies or food intolerances. When she’s not cooking, Camille is also part of Virgin Gorda Resilience Club, which focuses on mobilizing the community in disaster preparedness. She also enjoys traveling, spending time with her family, and dancing.

“One thing I enjoy about working with VISIONS leaders and their many lovely kids is the expressions on their faces after enjoying the different meals that are prepared for them. I’m looking forward to working with VISIONS for many years to come.”

Why the VISIONS Dress Code?

Our decisions about dress code are quite simple—we are guests in our host communities, not tourists. We work with elders, nonprofit leaders in their professional settings, indigenous communities that abide by conservative attire, members of religious and spiritual groups, and others whose cultural and professional beliefs abide by conservative and appropriate attire.
