ISC Summer Day Camp is aware of how damaging UV rays from the sun can be to your child’s skin. During the summer months, or when necessary, ISC Summer Day Camp will reapply and encourage the reapplication of sunscreen under the following circumstance:
- The field/swim trip takes place outdoors
- If the camper participates in an outdoor activity after 3pm
- The outdoor activity lasts longer than 4 hours outdoors
It is the parents’ responsibility to apply sunscreen to their child before releasing their child to the care of the ISC Summer Day Camp. Please send in sunscreen (labeled with your child’s name) in your camper’s bag each day. In the event we need to reapply sunscreen and sunscreen was NOT provided from home, campers will be provided sunscreen from ISC Summer Day Camp with at least an SPF 30 or higher from the camp triage room. If your child has a sensitivity/allergies to certain sunscreens, please be sure to note this on the health and wellness form.
All campers will spend time outside each day. Please apply sunscreen to your child before he/she arrives at camp. Please also send your child with sun protection such as SPF clothing, hats and sunglasses with their names labeled on the items. If your child is attending any field trip, it is imperative that you apply sunscreen to him/her before coming to camp.
Counselors will assist the PK, K, and 1st grade campers in reapplying their sunscreen on field trips and outdoor activities and will remind the older campers to do so throughout the day when they are outside.
When necessary, a counselor will assist each child that may be unable to personally apply his/her own sunscreen. When a child needs such assistance, the counselor will apply sunscreen on only the exposed parts of the child’s skin. Children will be requested to apply sunscreen along their suit lines. Also, the counselor will only apply sunscreen while another counselor is present.
