Spring & Summer Camps at The Original Playhouse
We are so excited for summer! In addition to our veteran teacher, Debbie Smith, we welcome our teacher-intern employees, Erin Lafferty and Kate Sigman. All three are eager to apply their fresh expertise and love for kids. We came up with a variety of content that suits an assortment of age ranges. We’re offering an early start on summer for our preschoolers who are still hungry for “school.” Email EllenatTOP@gmail.com with any questions.
The camps are all afternoon half-days, Monday thru Friday, 12:30-3:30. We do not break for snacks. Arriving at noon or staying till 4 is available for $5/half hour and can be scheduled that week. One week is $200/ child. Discounts applied when registering for two camps or for 2 siblings attending the same week. Full week registration is required to maintain continuity for the group. We cap at 10 kids per camp so every child gets proper attention.
- June 24-28 Glow Party! for grades K-2: Does your child have an affinity for science? Do they love things that glow and wonder where the shine comes from? Yes? Well welcome aboard! Enjoy a week of exploring and creating projects that glow and discovering some basic concepts about the chemical reactions that create glow.

The Town is joining the Maryland Municipal League (MML) and other local municipalities’ efforts to raise awareness about substance use and the opioid crisis. The Town will promote the statewide “211” hotline number that connects people to important community treatment and counseling services.
The Town is also making available a publication, the “Parent Toolkit,” produced by Discovery Education, which provides:
- Background information on the facts versus the myths of addiction;
- Information on how to recognize the common signs of potential drug abuse in children and teenagers;
- Recommendations on starting a conversation with children about drug abuse; and
- Suggestions for prevention of abuse and Intervention if abuse occurs.
Substance abuse and the opioid epidemic affect every community. Education is the starting point for a community to combat this public health crisis. Pick up a copy of the “Parent Toolkit” at the Town Office during working hours. Thank you.

Abuse Treatment Facility for Adolescents in Frederick
The Youth Ranch, formerly the Maryland Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch, a nonprofit in Frederick, Maryland, opened our new facility on June 1, 2016. We are a Residential Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Facility for Adolescents ages 12-17. In the State of Maryland, there are very few facilities available to help adolescents with substance abuse issues.
We have a mind, body, spirit approach. Our program provides:
• 24 Hour Supervision, Residential Stay
• Intensive Outpatient Therapy from our Outside Provider, Crossroads Center of Frederick
• Individualized Treatment Plans
• Oversight of Schooling
• Life Skill Classes
• Recreational & Leisure Activities
• Team Building Activities
• Nutritional Classes
• 12 Step Program
• Mentoring Program
• Spiritual Program
• Group, Individual and Family Therapy
The Youth Ranch is located on 204 beautiful, rural acres in Frederick County, Maryland. We have a top-notch facility and 41 years of experience working with adolescents. Our model is new to the State of Maryland – combining a residential program with Intensive Outpatient Therapy – thus giving our clients 1 – 3 months longer to receive therapy before having to return to their homes. Our facility is private pay for the residential portion with insurance covering the Intensive Outpatient Therapy.
