As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for more than 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for a lasting difference in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every major element of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenage boys have discovered success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
A number of factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure that boys have an abundance 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 can spend nights in 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 an important aspect of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally wish to give back and serve others.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education strongly supports future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone with not enough credits to complete senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys opt to continue their classwork from home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance education.
Students at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program second to none. Besides being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
