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

boys ranchesSince we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for upwards of 38 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the boys we serve. Every main element of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless boys have discovered success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

Several factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for boys from other therapeutic ranches:

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure that boys receive a lot 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 have their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys.

  • FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to visit family on normal scheduled breaks.

  • MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form a strong element of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally want to give back and serve others.

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

The Ranch Features an Accredited School

Within our accredited private school, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. We offer a GED opportunity for those with too few credits to graduate high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others.
