No child will be admitted if, upon arrival and before his/her parents leave camp, he or she has any evidence of Pediculosis (headlice), including nits. Head lice are present in all school systems and may be evident without symptoms. It is imperative that parents begin checking their child’s head every day beginning three weeks prior to camp, in order to leave adequate time for treatment. Also, re-scheduling campers for late arrival or alternative sessions isn’t always a viable alternative.
To facilitate checking your camper’s hair during camp, please be sure there are no braids, dreadlocks or the like; they will have to be removed upon arrival. If your camper is found to have lice or nits while at camp, treatment will be administered on a case-by-case basis.
