What to Do When Your Kid Comes Home from Camp with Lice

There are tons of great things your kids come home with after a summer camp: new skills, great memories, treasured photos, and maybe lifelong friends. However, when they go pick up their kid or kids from an adventure, there’s one huge problem that no parent wants to welcome: head lice, which is why many seek head lice removal.

Because children at camp sleep in close quarters and tend to share hair products, clothes, helmets, and other items, they’re at higher risk than usual of becoming infected with lice. These little bugs need direct contact to travel from head to head, and summer camps are often a great breeding ground for such activity.

When your child walks through the door and starts complaining about an itchy head, here are the first steps you need to take.

  1. Determine if the problem is actually related to lice. Use a magnifying glass and comb to thoroughly check your child’s head. Their discomfort could be caused by something other than lice (including dandruff or an allergic reaction), so don’t panic and assume they have parasites on their scalp – until you spot them.
  2. Schedule an emergency lice removal appointment. Sure, you could dash to the store and pick up some over-the-counter treatment products, but those are significantly less effective than using a service with professional tools and killing agents.
  3. Wash all bedding and clothing they took to camp. You don’t want to risk letting any lice survive, so it’s best to take precautions and wash everything – and wash it in hot water.
  4. Let other parents know about the lice. Most likely, your child caught the lice from a close friend at camp. Therefore, it’s a good idea to let fellow parents know about the lice infestation, so if necessary they can get their kids in for treatment too.
