Staying hydrated at camp
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Wednesday was the last day for UIS Future Stars Kids camp.
Since Monday, these campers have been beating the heat by staying in the shade, drinking plenty of water and taking much need air conditioning breaks.
The UIS head softball coach Shannon Guthrie says hydration is key to staying safe in the sun.
"It's important just to stay hydrated in general. Even when they go home at night, they can drink water once they get home and before they get out here," Guthrie said. "Eat something, drink water, get a lot of sleep. That's about all you can do in this heat."
When this camp means water, they mean lots of water.
Campers left Wednesday soaked after a balloon fight and a slip and slide.
