Summer is a time when families join together to have fun and experience
memorable moments, and Banana Boat^® sunscreen wants to help families create
and experience these moments while protecting their skin in "7 Conditions"*–
sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat. Banana
Boat^® sun care products are tested in these 7 conditions to provide safe and
effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection for the entire family. Banana
Boat^® sunscreen and Melissa Rycroft are encouraging families to enjoy their
time together outdoors, and to do so with proper sun protection.
"As the mother of an active two-year-old, I spend a lot of time running around
outside with my family," said "Dancing with the Stars" alum Melissa Rycroft.
"I like the idea of building a tradition of family fun in the sun, and doing
so while staying protected from the elements is top of mind for me."
The Banana Boat^® Unconditional Fun Sweepstakes gives families multiple
chances to win summer fun prizes through weekly giveaways hosted on the Banana
Boat^® sunscreen Facebook fan page. Users are encouraged to upload a photo of
their family having fun in any one of the Banana Boat^® sunscreen 7 Conditions
to the Facebook page or visit the Facebook fan page to view photos and enter
for a chance to win the fun family prize that reflects that week's featured

To celebrate the creation of family traditions, Great Wolf Lodge^® Waterpark
Resorts is joining Banana Boat^® sunscreen in the sweepstakes by offering fun
families the chance to win the ultimate four-day, three-night family getaway
to any of the ten U.S. Great Wolf Lodge^® Waterpark Resorts locations.
"Great Wolf Lodge^® Waterpark Resorts is delighted to be working with Banana
Boat^® sunscreen to allow families to come together and have a good time at
one of our lodges," said Nikki Donofrio, Senior Vice President of Strategic
Brand Marketing at Great Wolf Lodge^® Waterpark Resorts. "We look forward to

lotion which combines aloe with antioxidant Vitamins C & E to maintain 100% of
skin's natural moisture, and Banana Boat^® Sport Performance^® CoolZone™

harmful UV rays," said Carla Luca, Senior Brand Manager of Banana Boat^® brand

we've got you covered."
