I am going to be helping out at my kids' band camp in a few weeks, and I need to get things together for being outside. I did try (not very well) last year to prepare myself for it, but I still did not bring everything appropriate.
I know I need sunscreen and a hat. I have been told long sleeved shirts, but not only am I sun sensitive, but I have very little tolerance to heat as well. I am afraid that I will overheat if I dress in jeans and a long sleeve shirt. I will be outside for periods of about
2 1/2 hours at a time, twice a day, probably between 9 and 11:30 and again between 6 and 8:30. There is shade, and the parents usually sit there, but I will be filling water cups and walking to and from the field (I could take the golf caddy if I am lucky
What does everyone here who is sun sensitive do when being outside is necessary?
