The Western Canadian Pediatric AIDS Society (WCPAS), operating as Camp Moomba, is a Canadian registered charity that offers specialized recreational and support programs to children affected and impacted by HIV/AIDS. We do this through the Camp Moomba program by building a fun, enriching, and supportive community through a week long summer camp and activities throughout the year. Our camp motto, from the Australian Aboriginal word ‘Moomba’ is “Friends Together Having Fun!
Camp Moomba runs a summer camp, winter camp, leadership development program, December holiday get together and other community peer to peer opportunities such as attending sporting events and participating in sporting activities which provides a chance for the children and youth to come together in a camp community where the stigma of HIV does not exist. HIV, its stigma and isolation, are incredible barriers for these children in their everyday lives. Unfortunately, many of the children live in difficult socioeconomic situations which would otherwise prevent them from attending summer camp. For this reason we fundraise to cover all costs associated with each camper attending our programs. Camp Moomba provides the only camp for children impacted with HIV/AIDS in Canada. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Director of Fundraising and Operations is responsible for the effective operational management, fundraising and leadership of the organization with an annual budget of approximately $400K. The successful candidate will continue to build an organizational culture that is mission driven and will bring proven fundraising, administration, strategic planning and communication
experience to the position.
