As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for over 45 years. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the surest way to healing in the lives of the young men we serve. Every major element of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many young men have discovered 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 to ensure that boys have a lot 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 can spend nights in 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 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 go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we feel education forms a foundation for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for students with not enough credits to complete senior high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and working well with others.
Many teens have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
