Winter Camp 2016

We are so excited to be hosting winter camp, from January 30-31 at Evans Lake! We hope to see many familiar faces and welcome new folks over the weekend. This year’s program is based on the fantastic camp that Moomba’s former Executive Director, Mairin Pybus-Keane, and Manuelle (Manny) Chanoine, put together in 2015.

We’ll be spending the weekend at Evans Lake Camp in Squamish, BC. During the weekend, we are planning to pack in as much fun as possible!! Games, low ropes, art, archery, and campfire are all on offer. We also have a time when campers will get to choose their own activities. Some camp activities will be taking place outdoors, and snow or no snow, please be prepared for a winter camp setting. We will not be skiing this year.

We will be leaving from two convenient locations in the Lower Mainland (Surrey Central Skytrain Station and the Robert Lee YMCA in downtown Vancouver) on January 30th, 2016 between 9am and 10am. Campers will be returning to these same locations between 3:30pm and 4:30pm on January 31st, 2016. 

Questions about the upcoming program? Contact us at, or call 604-684-1701.

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!
