Properly cooling off

In highschool, over the summer I would go to a four day cheer camp. Cheer camp was a lot of fun since the whole squad went and we all learned so much. We learned dances, cheers and new stunts. It also was an awesome way to bond with the entire squad. The only downside of cheer camp was that it was always super hot. We would get up early and spend all day in the hot sun learning things. The temperatures would be almost in the 90s. Also there was no A/C anywhere. The building we learned the stunts in had mats, a roof, but no AC. So frequently we would drop our flyer since we were covered in sweat. Where we ate lunch and dinner only had large fans that provided some cooling. Basically you were just out of luck if you wanted air conditioning. The cheer camp didn’t even have a pool to properly cool off. Also since I shared a cabin with 20 other girls, the area I slept in was super hot. All of us girls would bring window fans and hook them up with extension cords. Fans only move the already heated air though. What we really needed was a few portable air conditioners to keep the whole space warm. By The end of the four days I was just itching to leave, and I was burned, tired and way too hot. I also was super cranky after being a sweat monster for a long weekend. A girl can only take so much sun and no cooling.
