Sun Hut

Sun Hut

The Sun Hut is a community outreach booth that promotes sun safe behaviours and skin cancer prevention and awareness at community events in Niagara. We also provide free sunscreen use for the community.

It is run by volunteers and overseen by community outreach coordinators. Volunteers encourage the public to participate in activities that support sun safety practices and educate the community about skin cancer prevention and sun safe behaviours.

Sun Hut services are free.
