OLDTOWN, Md. (AP) - A Western Maryland camp for troubled boys is growing a year after it reopened as a private, religious boarding school.
The Cumberland Times-News reports that the Mennonite-affiliated Allegany Boys Camp near Oldtown has 17 residents, compared with three last year.
The rustic, 300-acre site is overseen by operators of the Bald Eagle Boys Camp in Mill Hall, Pa., while a separate board seeks nonprofit certification for the Maryland property.
The camp was previously run by Three Springs New Dominion as a residential treatment center under the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services. The Alabama- based group closed it 2008 amid complaints from neighbors about security lapses.
The new owners say they offer up to 18 months of therapeutic, faith-based camping for boys aged 9 to 16.
