It is MSM’s policy not to apply sunscreen to your child.  Your child will be going outside each day at least once.  If you want sunscreen on your child, you must apply it in the morning before they come to camp or you may come to camp and apply it during the day.  Most primary camps will have water day and/or a field trip, once a week.  The particular day will be communicated to you at the beginning of each week. Children may NOT carry sunscreen in their backpacks to apply themselves.
