Plan for a successful trip. Check the forecast before you leave. Go in the mornings, evenings, or try to stay in the shade between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to avoid sunburns. Bring these along to make sure everyone stays happy and healthy:

• Sunscreen (don’t forget to reapply according to directions)

• Sunglasses

• Hat

• Insect repellent

• First aid kit

• Snacks

• Water

• Hand sanitizer/wet wipes

• Life jacket for water activities (make sure it fits properly)
