    If summer camps aren't your thing, volunteering is always a valuable experience. It's fulfilling for you, as well as those you may be helping! Local hospitals, nursing homes, animal shelters, etc. always need help (there may be some age requirements, so first contact the place of interest).
     
    When out in the Summer sun, remember the following:
    • Stay hydrated (avoid caffeinated drinks)
    • Wear sunscreen
    • If you're engaging in physical activity, take breaks and hydrate. Also, seek shelter (out of the sun), if you feel overheated.
