38 Year Reputation for Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

Teen_Challenge_031As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for over 38 years. We feel that a relationship with Jesus is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every major part of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenagers are finding success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

Several factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure boys have an abundance 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.

  • MORE 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.

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

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

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
