For teen boys dealing with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal issues, or drug abuse, we can help. An opportunity for a new path is possible through this Teen Challenge program for adolescent boys. We lovingly train wayward boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you would like to find a Teen Challenge for your boy in Iowa, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could possibly be just what you are searching for. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Iowa, but that may be a good thing. Boys needing intervention may need time away from your hometown and the influences of friends there.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families more than 40 years. A relationship with Jesus is the surest way to change in the lives of the teenagers. Every significant component 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 need to give back and serve others.
6-MONTH AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from this Teen Challenge, boys return home followed by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order 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.
Education means a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, because we feel education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling.
Parents from all over the nation, including Iowa,choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
Residents at Teen Challenge take part in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program second to none. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge. We would like to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge, a school in Iowa, or another program, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.

|More about Teen Challenge in Iowa: |
Iowa is a state located in the Midwestern United States, an area often referred to as the “American Heartland”. It derives its name from the Ioway people, one of the many American Indian tribes that occupied the state at the time of European exploration. Iowa was a part of the French colony of New France. After the Louisiana Purchase, settlers laid the foundation for an agriculture-based economy in the heart of the Corn Belt. Iowa is often known as the “Food Capital of the World”. However, Iowa’s economy, culture, and landscape are diverse.
In the latter half of the 20th century, Iowa’s agricultural economy transitioned to a diversified economy of advanced manufacturing, processing, financial services, biotechnology, and green energy production. Iowa is the 26th most extensive and the 30th most populous of the 50 United States. Its capital and largest city is Des Moines. Iowa has been listed as one of the safest states to live in.
“Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with their substance abuse, but is also gives our kids something to live for – a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, and a direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere. I sincerely appreciate your efforts to reach and rehabilitate the many young people who have, at present, no hope in life.”
Former Attorney General
“Teen Challenge changes the world one person at a time.”
Founder, Prison Fellowship
“The Teen Challenge program succeeds when all of the government programs have failed.”
“Too many young [people] have already lost their lives, and too many others have suffered serious injury for us to ignore the problems of juvenile alcohol and drug abuse. Programs such as Teen Challenge work to change young people’s lives by changing their hearts. I commend you for your work with young men who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.”
“In my opinion, Teen Challenge is doing the best all-around job of providing the kids with something meaningful in their lives. And that’s what they all need. . .I thank you for your continuing support for Teen Challenge.”
Former US Drug Czar
“Of all the drug programs reported to the Commission, the most successful is the program conducted by Teen Challenge.”
Past Director, AT&T Corporation
“Teen Challenge is one of the most successful programs in our country.”
