Concern is growing over children at summer camps that don’t have any air-conditioned facilities.
Camp directors across Central Indiana want to assure parents they are taking extra precautions to keep children safe despite the high temperatures.
Several camps across the area are limiting outdoor activities between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Many activities also include lots of water to keep kids hydrated.
Experts said a big misconception is that playing in a pool or sprinkler will keep your body hydrated.
"Just because they are in the pool, or doing water based activities you are still out in the heat and you still need to maintain the same amount of hydration,” said one expert.
There are some signs to watch out for when your child comes home from camp. If they complain of headache, nausea, dizziness or have a decrease in bathroom breaks they are probably dehydrated.
Experts said an 88-pound child should drink five ounces of cold tap water every 20 minutes.
