As we get ready for SUMMER CAMP 2013, it is good to reminisce on last year's lessons and experiences.
Lesson 1: Use spray sun tan lotion.
Spray is Better
The other week we ran out of spray sun tan lotion and had to use our back up cream lotion. In theory there should not be a big difference between the two, but reality proved something very different. Generally, many summer time campers reluctantly allow the spray to be put on them, so the cream lotion proved to push their limits. Staff was diligent in making sure adequate protection was used and that meant sometimes using a bit too much. Like in the picture above, many were in disbelieve over seeing so much white stuff on their bodies, and one commented: "I am never doing this again." Even after jumping into the pool the lotion was visible for some time. Throughout the swim time there were many conversations about how uncomfortable this lotion was and how would it ever disappear. Thankfully plenty of spray bottle were brought back to the pool, and that kind of situation was avoided.
