Lice Control Tips for Camp
The Center for Lice Control shares tips for a lice-free summer!
Ready for warm weather and our kids to attend very much needed summer programs?! Main Line Parent’s Camp Fair and Camp Guide have showcased many amazing summer camps and programs for 2021. But whether your camper is going to day camp or overnight camp, lice control is important to avoid a lice outbreak for your family this summer. Here are a few simple tips from the Center for Lice Control for peace of mind lice control.
- Combing head checks on all campers in your house two weeks before camp
- Another combing head check within two days of the first day of camp
- Putting hair up in a braid or bun to help keep hair to yourself
- Do not share hairbrushes at home or at camp
- If you do find lice, do a combing head check on any human living in your home
- Day camp: Perform weekly combing head checks regardless if there’s a reported case
- Overnight camp: Perform a combing head check the day your camper returns home
- Center for Lice Control Salon and Products are always available for questions, head checks, treatments, and our DIY Pro Lice Treatment Kit (non-toxic and safe for any age) available in select local pharmacies. Call or text anytime (610) 324-5661.
