Healing and Hope for Thousands of Boys Over the Past Five Decades

boys ranchesSince we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for more than five decades. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for a lasting difference in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every significant part of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous teenage boys have found success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and spelunking (cave exploration). Students are challenged physically and learn the importance of goals and perseverance.
