The Wages Of Sun
A lot of camps these days ban sunscreen. Because sunscreen is classified as a regulated over the counter drug. Drug free camps have lots of severely sunburned, unhappy campers.
Well, just have your kid wear a hat to protect him.her from the rays of the sun. Well hold on just a minute there. Some camps are banning caps. Because they might be associated with gang affiliation.
Another angle to this sunscreen ban story. Some camp officials are worried that there could be some legal problems stemming from adults applying sunscreen to the bodies of children. Inappropriate touching.
You just can't make it up. I'd kind of like to be a kid again. Then again...
