As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for more than 45 years. We feel that a relationship with Christ is the best source of change in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main element of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why countless young men have discovered success here, even where other programs failed.
A few factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys get an abundance 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 visit family on normal 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 return home with a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys 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 too many missing credits to graduate high school on time. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, many boys decide to continue their classwork at home through dual enrollment with Alpha Omega Academy distance learning.
Residents at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
