Summer Camp is such an important and memorable time for anyone. It sure was for me. Camp Moomba is summer camp for kids impacted by HIV/Aids:
I featured this podcast in the weekly digest on Reality Sandwich: Visions of Cody interviewing Kate Churchill about her film: Enlighten Up! – A Skeptics Journey Into The World of Yoga. Looks like a great independent film worthy of supporting. Two thumbs up already from Nancy Gilgoff and Patricia Walden. I bet we can get a good audience for it here in Vancouver…
John Cleese investigates “Laughter Yoga”. While we’re at it, how about “The Ministry of Silly Walks” and The Lumberjack Song at the Concert for George Harrison. “…British Columbia…”!
“On July 12th two thousand people will participate in the Camp Moomba Yogathon to raise funds for children impacted by HIV/AIDS. Participants collect pledges prior to the event and then on the event day they convene to perform 108 minutes of yoga.”
About Camp Moomba:
“Established in 1997, Camp Moomba is a specialized summer camp program for kids age 6—17 who are impacted by HIV/AIDS. Many of the children that attend Camp Moomba are confronted by similar issues in their lives, many live in difficult socio-economic situations. By coming together each year they are able to find the type of support that can only come from understanding.
“Moomba” is an Australian Aboriginal word that means “join together to have fun” and forms our camp’s philosophy: Friends Together Having Fun.”
