What about the altitude?
Created on • Last updated ago
The camp’s elevation is 8,000 feet above sea level and oxygen is approximately 45% less dense. If you’re coming from lower elevations, you may experience a slight shortness of breath at first, and some people may also have fatigue and dizziness. This is fairly common. To help prevent these symptoms, drink plenty of water (64 oz. daily), get plenty of rest, eat lightly, and avoid alcohol. This is especially important during the first few days as your body adjusts to the altitude! And adjust it will.
There is also 50% to 80% less humidity in the air than sea level, so this is another reason to drink lots of water and stay hydrated. There will be water drinking stations provided in all major playing areas and lecture rooms.
Your chances of sunburn also increases at higher elevations. Be sure to use plenty of sunscreen and protect your eyes with sunglasses.
