Camp Moomba is a peer support and education program for youth living with, and affected by, HIV in British Columbia!
Camp Moomba came to YouthCO in 2015, after 18 years of operating under the Moomba Society and the Western Canadian Pediatric AIDS Society. is a program for youth from 6 to 17 years old who are living with HIV, or who have a family member living with HIV. Moomba was first hosted by the in 1998. This organization evolved into the Moomba Society, which has now integrated with YouthCO.
The Moomba community is fostered through a summer and winter camp program, which is led by committed volunteers who have aged out of camp programs. At Moomba, youth get to benefit from a supportive community that is responsive to the ways HIV impacts campers lives. Our programming is a blend of traditional outdoor camp activities like high ropes, swimming, and canoeing, fun traditions, and HIV-specific peer education and support.
