45 Year History of Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

therapeutic ranchSince we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for more than 45 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus is the primary avenue for transformation in the lives of the teenage boys we serve. Every significant portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenage boys have discovered success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys receive plenty of supervision and personal 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 normal scheduled breaks.

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

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
