We lovingly train troubled boys to choose a better path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.

teen challengeIf you are searching for a Teen Challenge for your boy in Illinois, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could possibly be precisely what you are looking for. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Illinois, but that may be a good thing. Teenage boys needing intervention may need to get away from your hometown and the influences of friends there. 

40 Year History of Hope for Hundreds of Boys from Illinois

adolescent teen challengeSince we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families more than 40 years. A relationship with Jesus is the surest way to transformation in the lives of the teenagers. Every main part of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.

Several factors show the difference between Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch and other similar programs:

  • MUCH LOWER COST!  Teen Challenge is a fraction of the cost of other therapeutic programs.

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

  • 6-MONTH AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from this Teen Challenge, boys go home with a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

  • boys teen challengeMORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys receive a lot of supervision and personal attention. Also, our staff are highly trained and most have bachelor or master’s degrees in their area of work.

  • ADVENTURE-BASED THERAPY — Our students have regular opportunities to experience fun and challenging outdoor trips and activities. Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and hiking, climbing and cave exploration. Boys are challenged physically and learn the importance of responsibility, goals and perseverance.

  • PRIVACY — Rather than a large dorm filled with bunk beds, our students enjoy their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys.  We feel that this privacy is important.

More about Teen Challenge in Illinois:
Illinois is the 25th most extensive and the 5th most populous of the 50 United States, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.Cite news] With Chicago in the northeast, small industrial cities and great agricultural productivity in central and northern Illinois, and natural resources like coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois has a broad economic base. Illinois is a major transportation hub. The Port of Chicago connects the state to other global ports from the Great Lakes, via the St. Lawrence Seaway, to the Atlantic Ocean; as well as the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, via the Illinois River. For decades, O’Hare International Airport has ranked as one of the world’s busiest airports. As the “most average state”, Illinois has long had a reputation as a bellwether both in social and cultural terms and politics.
In the 1810s, settlers began arriving from Kentucky. In 1818 Illinois achieved statehood. The state’s population originally grew from south to north. Chicago was founded in the 1830s on the banks of the Chicago River, one of the few natural harbors on southern Lake Michigan. Railroads and John Deere’s invention of the self-scouring steel plow turned Illinois’ rich prairie into some of the world’s most productive and valuable farmlands, attracting immigrant farmers from Germany and Sweden. By 1900, the growth of industrial jobs in the northern cities and coal mining in the central and southern areas attracted immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe. Illinois was an important manufacturing center during both world wars. The Great Migration established a large community of African Americans in Chicago that created the city’s famous jazz and blues cultures.
Three U.S. Presidents have been elected while living in IllinoisAbraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, and Barack Obama. Additionally, President Ronald Reagan, whose political career was based in California, was the only US President actually born and raised in Illinois. Today, Illinois honors Lincoln with its official state slogan, Land of Lincoln, which has been displayed on its license plates since 1954.
