The Partner Village is the starting and finishing point of every hike. It is also the place where families receive picnic blankets, a booklet with all the information they will need, and some snacks for along the way.
CSS sponsors the large Sun Tipi in the Partner Village, where children can playfully discover things about the sun and learn about sun protection. They will also receive a walking scarf, apply sunscreen, and use coloured sunscreen pens for making patterns on their skin.
All the while the Sun Queen sits on her throne in the middle of the Sun Tipi and hands out small rewards to those who protect themselves from the sun. Once everyone is properly prepared, they set out on the fairytale hike.
