Carter Wood drinks out of the Camp Adventure water jug on July 18 at Stephens Lake Park. The day camp focuses on learning outdoor skills, but campers spent part of their day inside because of the heat.
The heat index is expected to hover between 105 and 115 degrees this week, according to the National Weather Service. Children at summer camp are spending more time indoors, and air-conditioning repairs have been more frequent.

Jaylen Johnson, 6, leaps over a hula hoop, a trick one of his Adventure Camp counselors taught him, while spending time in the air-conditioned Reichmann Pavilion on July 18 at Stephens Lake Park. After a day of outdoor activities, energetic campers and counselors cooled down inside while enjoying lanyards, hula hoops and foursquare.
Ryan Box uses his billboard to shade himself from a blazing afternoon sun Monday at Worley Street and Stadium Boulevard. "I made a fort with the sign. It almost completely blocks the sun," said Box, who was working a five-hour shift.
