38 Year Reputation for Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

Teen_Challenge_031Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for over 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every significant component of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenage boys are finding success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

A few factors show the difference between Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch and other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys have plenty of supervision and one-on-one 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 make visits to home on regularly scheduled breaks.

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

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
