Even if your child loves creepy, crawly things, mosquito bites and bee stings can make summer camp unpleasant. So don't forget the bug spray — just be sure to use one made for kids. Fairy Tales Bug Bandit ($15) DEET-free formula ($13.95) promises to repel fleas, mosquitoes, ticks, and biting flies all with a mere spritz. Plus, it is free of harsh chemicals, pesticides, toxins, parabens, sulfates, dairy, gluten, and nuts that can trigger allergic reactions.
There is nothing worse than a visit from Aunt Louise at summer camp! Close proximity in camp cabins and sharing caps and clothing create the perfect storm for a lice outbreak. To protect your child, simply pack a shampoo that will naturally repel lice. Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Daily Shampoo ($12.95) gently cleanses the scalp while a proprietary blend of organic Rosemary, Citronella, Tea Tree and Geranium oils help prevent lice.
