Even with the above-average heat in southern Manitoba this week, Camp Arnes is finding ways to let campers have fun in the sun.

Larissa Terry, summer registrar and communications coordinator for Camp Arnes, says temperatures won't be slowing down their camp operations this week whatsoever.

"We are pretty lucky, just in our placement," says Terry. "We're right off the lake so we stay cooler than everywhere else does."

Though that can mean the camp registers at a few degrees cooler than other Manitoba areas, it doesn't mean campers there aren't feeling the heat.water camp arnesKids get to swim everyday at Camp Arnes, and even use cool water equipment while they have fun staying cool. (Larissa Terry)

"Campers are scheduled to go swimming every single day," Terry explained. Cool lake water and access to an indoor pool, then, provide a very significant escape for campers.

More shaded areas are another way those at Camp Arnes are staying cooler, despite high temperatures.

"Around the high ropes, there wasn't very much shade because, obviously, trees do get in the way when you're climbing things, so we built some shaded-in areas so that campers who are waiting for their turn can stay underneath that."

Terry says that the camp is also very vigilant in making sure every child has a water bottle with water in it at all times, and that Camp Arnes makes sure to provide plenty of opportunities for campers to refill their water bottles and stay hydrated.

The best part of keeping kids cool, however, comes on Friday's at Camp Arnes.

"We have a giant water fight in our giant field," shared Terry.

"All the kids are throwing those spongy-things that hold water, and buckets of water. It's just a giant water fight and it works really well to cool them off."
