Doing Your Part – How You Can Prepare Your Children for Hot Weather
- Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting cotton clothing.
- Apply sunscreen (factory at least 15-30) before arriving at camp. Campers should bring their sunscreen and reapply throughout the day as needed. Campers that need extra reminders should be communicated to our staff.
- Drink plenty of water and send it to camp with a reusable water bottle. Avoid soft drinks, coffee, and other caffeinated beverages.
- Be sure to inform staff of any medical issues that may be impacted by hot weather.
Recreation Service Managers will check the weather each day in preparation to make changes to activities as needed. During severe weather (thunder, lightning, tornados), campers are immediately taken to an indoor location. If the National Weather Service determines a heat emergency exists, camp activities will be modified to be more passive and less strenuous. More frequent water breaks will be provided. If possible, campers will be moved to an air-conditioned facility.
