This product is much like the original formula, and is equally effective, but is citronella-free for children - and anyone else who may have an aversion to citronella. Each bottle includes a hangtag with space for a name, so it won’t get lost! While our 8-ounce bottles have our signature trigger sprayer, our travel size 4-ounce and 2-ounce sizes (with pump sprayers) are convenient for travel and to carry in a handbag or a backpack.
The Best Insect Repellent for Kids
Nantucket Spider Summer Camp is the best bug spray for kids. What differentiates this bug spray from the rest of our insect repellents, is that this was made specifically with kids in mind. Studies have shown that kids can develop skin irritation when using an insect repellent that contains citronella oil. Our Summer Camp bug spray is made without citronella oil, but just like our Original, this insect repellent is the best when it comes to repelling mosquitoes and biting flies. Independent lab tests demonstrate an efficacy rate of 98%-100% against mosquitoes!
Seriously, it’s that good. It’s the best insect repellent for your kids, so they can spend more time playing outdoors.
