How do you protect against head lice?

Head lice is a common problem amongst children and is occasionally identified in our incoming guests. As a community living in close quarters, head lice can spread quickly and be hard to eliminate. In an effort to prevent lice, we request that all parents check their child’s head for lice before arrival. We recommend checking for lice both one week and one day before arrival.

Upon arrival, guests will also be checked by a Lice Screening company called Lice Squad. If any lice or nits are found, parents will have one of two options:

  • Return home and, after proper treatment has been received, return back to camp (product will be available to purchase)
  • Parents can request Lice Squad to treat the guest for lice. Parents will be subject to a $275.00 minimum lice treatment fee payable upfront. This includes one on-site treatment and comb out by a nurse, as well as the supplies necessary to continue treatment at home.

To avoid stress and disappointment, we strongly urge you to check your child’s hair prior to arrival.

Muskoka Woods is a Christian youth development organization that welcomes everyone to an experience for a lifetime. Cabin Chat and Conversation Cafe are a special part of each night at Muskoka Woods, with WILD and Venture guests participating in Cabin Chat and Junior High and Senior High guests in Conversation Cafe. During this time, guests share on topics including Christian values, character building and personal beliefs. These sessions create a safe space for listening, laughing and learning about values and morals through Bible stories. We encourage young people to think in new ways. Whatever the occasion, our conversations are age appropriate and respectful of all religions and beliefs.

Do you have a health centre with nurses and a doctor?

At Muskoka Woods, we don’t just meet the Ontario Camping Association’s standards of healthcare – we exceed them. Our Healthcare Centre is staffed all summer long by our Head Nurse and Healthcare Crew. Each week, a Doctor and Nurse team join us to ensure the best care possible.

If your child needs to take medication while at Muskoka Woods, please bring it with the original label and drop it off at our Healthcare Centre on Super Saturday. Medication will be administered as per the guest’s needs.
