Healing and Hope for Thousands of Boys Over the Past 38 Years

boys ranchesAs the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for over 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the surest way to change in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every significant element of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous teenagers have discovered success here, even where other programs failed.

A number of factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for boys apart from other therapeutic ranches:

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys receive an abundance of supervision and individual attention. Our staff are highly trained and most have bachelor or master’s degrees in their area of work.

  • ADVENTURE-BASED LEARNING — Our outdoor adventure program is second to none. Our students have regular opportunities to experience fun and challenging outdoor activities. Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and spelunking (cave exploration). Students are challenged physically and learn the importance of goals and perseverance.

  • PRIVACY FOR EACH BOY — Rather than housing all the boys in a large dorm filled with bunk beds, our students enjoy their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys.

  • FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to make visits to home on normal scheduled breaks.

  • MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form an important aspect of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally desire to give back and serve others.

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
