Moomba Magic 2020

*UPDATED December 6, 2019: We did it!! So many people were generous with their time and money to ensure 2020 will be full of Moomba Magic! Thank you!!!!

YouthCO and Camp Moomba merged our programming in 2015 to provide year round opportunities for youth impacted by HIV. Since then, GivingTuesday has been a key part of how we fund our one-of-a-kind camp program, which blends the HIV leadership programming that YouthCO is known for with the Moomba philosophy, “friends together having fun.” The people who make GivingTuesday a big success help us keep our promise to our campers and the Camp Moomba community to ensure there's a space where HIV does not have to stay private, and kids can just be kids. 

Are you able to help us make Moomba Magic? We're already planning for our winter program, March 7 & 8, and our summer program, July 12 - 17!

This GivingTuesday, our goals are to: 

  • raise enough money to bring seven (7) campers to our week of supportive programming this July: that's $8,400!
  • connect with five (5) new volunteers who can be part of Camp Moomba this July, whether supporting transportation, offering specialized programming for our campers, or staffing our Wellness space! 
  • share the importance of our one-of-a-kind program with more people, in-person and online! 
  • thank our ongoing donors, who, year after year, make camp possible!

There are lots of ways you can help!

Get in touch at moomba@youthco.org to help us with our online and in-person support-raising campaign to help us create Moomba Magic again in 2020! Watch this space for more ways to get involved!


YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
