Courgette wilts in first day in greenhouse

My beautiful courgette seedlings moved out to the greenhouse today. I wasn’t watching the heat and after a few hours the temperature in there hit 30 and the courgettes now look devastated. I’ve brought them in and watered but the main leaves still look drooped and are very soft. Will they recover or have I ruined them?
This is my first greenhouse and Im still learning how to make best use of it. Today I learned not to cook courgettes in it. I don’t think I’ll take them outside to the greenhouse again until I recover from this trauma 😊
In the past hour the floppy leaves have perked up ever-so-slightly. I think I’m more traumatised than they are.
Would you recommend keeping them indoors again now until I plant them out in a couple weeks time, or try the green house again, but with some ventilation this time? I’m not really using the greenhouse to keep any of my seedlings and it seems a shame not to be using it? Also my house is over run with seedlings...
Thanks for the advice!
