Swim Shirts! The Park Ridge Park District has teamed up with the Pediatric Sun Protection Foundation, Inc. (PSPF) to offer sun protected swim shirts for our staff and campers. PSPF is a not-for-profit charity that was formed to promote public awareness regarding the dangers of sun exposure and to advocate the value of wearing sun protective clothing, which provides an additional but relatively unknown tool for preventing sun damage and reducing the risk of skin cancer. As part of a pilot program, the Park Ridge Park District is providing one swim shirt to each camper enrolled in Camptastic.

Swim Shirts are available to all campers at a cost of $15 per shirt. To purchase go to www, click on the link for Sun Protection Zone and click on the tab titled Park Ridge Park District Swim Shirt . All orders must be received by April 1, 2014 to ensure delivery prior to the start of camp.
