Wilton YMCA camp in Connecticut makes swimming safer for their campers with a swim monitoring system in addition to a legion of lifeguards. The Wahoo Swim Monitoring system uses headbands worn by the swimmers to alert lifeguards of a swimmer who stays underwater too long.
The system can even be used by camps where swimming is done in lakes or ponds with less visibility. Should all camps have a system like this? Do you think it will help keep kids safer in the water? Video and more here.
