Block the Blaze

Block the Blaze is a John Wayne Cancer Foundation (JWCF) funded youth skin cancer education program. The Block the Blaze program is the official partner of the California Surf Lifesaving Association (CSLSA) to provide skin cancer education to CA junior lifeguards; and a charitable partner of USA Swimming Foundation to educate youth enrolled in Make a Splash swim lessons. 

ACA and the JWCF have worked together to provide this sun safety course structured to provide a straightforward understanding of playing it safe in the sun.

This one hour online course for staff helps them understand and pass along to their youth participants the importance of sun safety, skin cancer prevention and self-screening, and provides the necessary tools to share with youth for playing it safe in the sun!

Educate your campers and receive sunscreen, hats, and educational materials from the John Wayne Cancer Foundation Depending on current inventory, The John Wayne Cancer Foundation offers complimentary hats and sunscreen to camps who agree to record the number of campers educated – see course for details.
