Our experienced coaching staff will take additional water/shade breaks throughout the day.  There are shaded areas and tents around the athletic fields where groups can rest between activities.  Campers are able to cool-off by our misting fans or even take a quick run through the sprinklers that we turn on. Pool time and/or Water Park time would also be extended for that day, not to mention access to air-conditioned indoor space.
