Camp Moomba Visitor Day

Are you a Camp Moomba alumni? A future Moomba family? A strong supporter of our work? Consider joining us at camp for visitor day, a key tradition for Moomba!

We are pleased to be able to welcome visitors to join us for an afternoon and evening at camp on July 17! Visitors are welcome on site starting at 3:30pm, and will be able to join us for a welcome, afternoon activities, dinner, and an evening dance party. Visitors will be joining group activities, and must stay with the group at all times.

Visitors are welcome on site between 3:30pm and 8:15pm on July 17.

If you would like, YouthCO can help arrange travel for visitors! We will be taking the 2:25pm ferry from West Vancouver (Horseshoe Bay) and arriving on the Sunshine Coast at 3:05pm. We'll enjoy an afternoon of activities, dinner, and ultimately a dance party before departing on the 9:00pm ferry. YouthCO will be able to cover passenger fares for our visitors, and limited rides will be available from the ferry terminal to camp. Our camp site is approximately a 25 minute (uphill) walk from the ferry terminal. 

All visitors must sign a confidentiality statement, including an agreement limiting photo taking and sharing to ensure the privacy of our campers, before the day.

To join us as a visitor, RSVP below! We will reply to your RSVP with the confidentiality statement and additional information we require (any dietary needs, an emergency contact, and any need-to-know medical information, such as whether you carry an EpiPen). We will do our best to accommodate everyone who would like to participate in visitor day. We may not be able to respond to visitor requests while at camp, so please get in touch before July 10 to confirm your spot!

Camp Moomba, including our visitor day, is made possible thanks to the generosity of individual donors, the Provincial Health Services Authority, and a POSITIVE ACTION community grant from ViiV Healthcare. Our programming and peer education does not necessarily reflect the policies or opinions of any of these organizations, companies or individuals.

Will you come?

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!
