38 Year History of Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

therapeutic ranchSince we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for more than 38 years. We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the primary avenue for change in the lives of the boys we serve. Every main part of our program is biblically based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless boys have realized success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

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 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 enjoy 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 a strong element of the program, for this reason: as boys mature, they naturally want to give back and serve others.

  • EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.

Weslaco is a city in Hidalgo County, Texas, United States. The population was 35,670 at the 2010 census. Weslaco derives its name from the W.E. Stewart Land Company. It was the hometown of Harlon Block, one of the Marines photographed raising the flag at Iwo Jima.
Streets north of the railroad tracks have Spanish names, and streets south of the railroad tracks have English ones as a consequence of a 1921 municipal ordinance which declared that land north of the tracks be reserved for Hispanic residences and businesses, and land south of the tracks be reserved for Anglo residences and businesses. During World War II, sandbag production reached a peak in Welaco, and the town declared itself the “sandbagging capital of the world.”
