Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for over 38 years. We feel that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the surest way to change in the lives of the young men we serve. Every major portion of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many young men have found 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 get 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 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 seasonally scheduled breaks.
MORE MISSION TRIPS — Mission trips form an important aspect of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally desire 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 much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone with not enough credits to finish high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills including 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 learning.
Boys at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We facilitate an adventure program second to none. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
