Ridgecrest offers both MFUGE and Centrifuge.
Students and adults can take a hike on the many hiking trails on the Ridgecrest campus, enjoy ice cream and snacks from the Nibble Nook, have a cup of coffee or a snack from Clouds, or relax in a rocking chair on Rocking Chair Ridge. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the Ridgecrest campus. Housing is bunk style (some up to 12 per room) and standard hotel style. Linens are not provided. Ridgecrest housing staff will notify you of your specific housing assignment and how many per room before you arrive at camp, sometime in the later spring.
