As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for more than 38 years. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every main portion of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenagers 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 boys get 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 visit family on normal 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 completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education forms a foundation for future success. In our accredited private Christian school, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for those with not enough credits to finish 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 such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys choose to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We facilitate an adventure program that is second to none. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and working well with others.
Many young men have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
