How do you respond to the crude language of people around you?

Haven WRITES: I am volunteering at a secular sailing camp this summer. A lot of the kids will take the Lord’s name in vain repeatedly throughout the day. The teachers are the same way and I want to respect their authority, because I am only a volunteer. However, I found last summer that just trying to ignore it affects my own language, so I don’t want to do that again.

I don’t know what to say to them. I want to be a witness to all of these people because I may be the only Christian influence in their life, but I also don’t want to burn bridges as the crazy teen that doesn’t want them to say OMG! Should I say something? Should I not? Should I talk to the instructors about it?
