Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for over 45 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus is the surest way to a lasting difference in the lives of the young men we serve. Every significant component of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous young men have realized success here, even where other programs failed.
A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other therapeutic boarding schools:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure boys get a lot 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 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 regularly 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 successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we feel education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. We offer a GED track for those with not enough credits to graduate senior 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 more. After completing 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 a multitude of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program second to none. As well as being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
