Sunscreen and Insect Repellent

If needed, apply these products to

participants before they come to the

program each day. Please supply any

sunscreen and/or insect repellent that

the participant may need during any

program. Staff will provide frequent

opportunities for participants to reapply

over the course of the day. Staff or sib-

lings may assist participants in applying

sunscreen only to exposed skin that the

participant cannot reach on their own.

Spray or mist type sunscreen and/or in-

sect repellent are recommended. These

products are not to be shared with other

campers. Participants in Specialized

Recreation Services camps may be as-

sisted to apply sunscreen and/or insect

repellant as provided and directed by

the parent/guardian.

Swimming Information (for

applicable programs)

Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources

staff will conduct swim tests for all program

participants and issue lifejackets to

non-swimmers. To swim without a

lifejacket, a swimmer must be able to

swim one length of the pool (approx-

imately 25 yards or 75 feet) on their

front and tread water for 30 seconds.

All non-swimmers will be required to

wear lifejackets. Parent/guardian can

request that staff not allow the partici-

pant to participate in the swim test and

automatically place the participant in a

lifejacket. Staff reserves the right to place

a participant in a lifejacket in the interest

of safety. All participants, regardless of

swimming ability, will wear lifejackets

when participating in water activities,

including swimming, in lakes, rivers or

the ocean.
