Bedbug infestation causes closure of Camp Spaulding
Child and Family Services spokesperson Kat Strange said bed bugs were found in two cabins last week and boys in those cabins were relocated and the cabins treated at the 55-acre camp off Bog Road in the Penacook section of the city.
That decision was to cancel the remaining three session and do a thorough treatment of the camp, sealing floors and walls, steam cleaning surfaces and replacing bed frames and mattresses.
She said today is the last day of the first session, so parents were notified of the situation, by phone, mail and email, and told they could pick up their children early if they so desired.
Strange said parents will be reimbursed for the canceled sessions and said the organization understands that the cancelation may cause child care and other problems for families and will try to help with those issues.
