40 Year Reputation for Hope for Hundreds of Boys from South Dakota

adolescent teen challengeAs the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for more than 40 years. A relationship with Christ is the best source of healing in the lives of the teenagers. Every major component of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.

A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from 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 return home with a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

  • boys teen challengeMORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys get plenty 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 can spend nights in 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 South Dakota:
South Dakota is a state located in the Midwestern region of the United States. It is named after the Lakota and Dakota Sioux American Indian tribes. South Dakota is the 17th most extensive, but the 5th least populous and the 5th least densely populated of the 50 United States. Once the southern portion of the Dakota Territory, South Dakota became a state on November 2, 1889. Pierre is the state capital and Sioux Falls, with a population of nearly 160,000, is South Dakota’s largest city.
South Dakota is bordered by the states of North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana. The state is bisected by the Missouri River, dividing South Dakota into two geographically and socially distinct halves, known to residents as “East River” and “West River”.Hasselstrom, pp. 24.] Eastern South Dakota is home to most of the state’s population, and fertile soil in this area is used to grow a variety of crops. West of the Missouri, ranching is the predominant agricultural activity, and the economy is more dependent on tourism and defense spending. The Black Hills, a group of low pine-covered mountains, is located in the southwest part of the state. The Black Hills are sacred to the Sioux. Mount Rushmore, a major tourist destination, is located there. Other attractions in the southwest include Badlands and Wind Cave national parks, Custer State Park, the Crazy Horse Memorial, and historic Deadwood. South Dakota experiences a temperate continental climate, with four distinct seasons and precipitation ranging from moderate in the east to semi-arid in the west. The ecology of the state features species typical of a North American grassland biome.
Humans have inhabited the area for several millennia, with the Sioux becoming dominant by the early 19th century. In the late 19th century, European-American settlement intensified after a gold rush in the Black Hills and the construction of railroads from the east. Encroaching miners and settlers caused conflict that triggered a number of Indian Wars, ending with the Wounded Knee Massacre in 1890. Key events in the 20th century included the Dust Bowl and Great Depression, increased federal spending during the 1940s and 50s for agriculture and defense, and an industrialization of agriculture which has much reduced family farming. While several Democratic senators have represented South Dakota for multiple terms at the federal level, the state government is largely dominated by the Republican Party, whose nominees have carried South Dakota in each of the most recent eleven presidential elections. Historically dominated by an agricultural economy and a rural lifestyle, South Dakota has recently sought to diversify its economy to attract and retain residents. South Dakota’s history and rural character still strongly influence the culture of the state.
