Fort Detrick unveiled a brand new Child Development Center during a ribbon cutting ceremony Jan. 30.

At an open house after the ceremony, attendees were given the opportunity to tour the new facility, which will combine the school-age children center with the middle school and teen center.

“The idea for a new facility started in 2005 and came into existence in January 2018,” said Fort Detrick U.S. Army Garrison Commander Col. Scott Halter. “The journey has been long, but standing here today I can say, it was worth the wait!”

The new facility, which is 21,000 square feet, has the capacity for 150 children. The previous facility was only 12,000 square feet and over 30 years old.

Chris Campbell, youth and services coordinator at Fort Detrick, says the new facility is a standard design with specific rooms for activities such as art and fitness.

“There are so many benefits to this new facility,” said Campbell, “but what many are most excited about is the state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen, which will allow children to actively participate.”

The event was hosted by U. S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Fort Detrick Commander Maj. Gen. Barbara R. Holcomb.

Representatives from Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen’s offices and Frederick County were in attendance to support and tour the new facility.
