**Please send your camper to camp with brightly colored bathing suits – and no blue. Studies have shown that blue bathing suits are nearly invisible underwater. In contrast, fluorescent yellow or orange are highly visible – this sounds grim, but if we were ever looking for a submerged swimmer, we want to see their swimsuit! So please send him with a brightly colored bathing suit – thank you!
