Sun Safety

Being outdoors is a great way for campers and camp counselors to exercise and enjoy all that nature has to offer.  However, being in the sun can lead to painful sunburns that can cause permanent damage to the skin and body, including melanoma.  To avoid your campers and camp staff from getting sunburned, advise them of all the precautions that need to be taken to prevent excruciating, uncomfortable sunburns:

  • Put sunscreen on at least 30 minutes prior to sun exposure
  • Be liberal with the amount of sunscreen you put on
  • Sunscreen should have a minimum of SPF 30 or 45
  • Wear hats and UV protected sunglasses
  • Reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours
