The MCF-Togo houses up-to 90 adult male Challenge Incarceration Program (CIP) offenders. The facility opened in 1955 as "Thistledew Camp" for youth. In 2015, MCF-Togo's mission changed from juveniles to minimum-security adults. CIP-Togo is a minimum security boot camp program mandated by the Legislature in 1992 that allows non-violent offenders who qualify to earn early release. Phase 1 is a six-month, intensive program for up to 90 non-violent drug and property male offenders. Programming components include education, critical thinking skills development, chemical dependency programming, and rigorous physical exercise. Phases 2 and 3, supervised release phases, are generally six months in duration and served in the community.
