This episode of the Pine Cove podcast is brought to you by WATER. With exciting features like “hydration,” water is an indispensable part of camp. Need to wash your hands? Try using water! Looking for a beverage to pair with those chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese? Mix a sweet red powder with water! Need to wash paint off your face because all of your campers memorized their Bible verses? Splash some water on and you’re good to go, mostly! This combination of oxygen and hydrogen, with a touch of something that makes it smell JUST A LITTLE BIT WEIRD—hey, it’s camp—will keep you feeling fresh all day long! Or at least for the next 30 seconds. Thanks, humidity!
