Adventure-Based Therapy

Adventure-Based Behavioral Therapy

Teen Challenge for boys

Our Teen Challenge for boys program is all built around providing the boys with adventure and physical activities indoors and outdoors. Outdoors, we go horseback riding, camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and spelunking (rock climbing and cave exploration). Upon entering our program, the boys take a three-day camping trip with staff and several seasoned residents. Additionally, there is one outdoor adventure a month, and twice a year, we spend a week at Camp Orr, the Arkansas Boy Scouts Camp.

We also have a certified ROPES COURSE on our property, where the boys learn the importance of teamwork, goals, and perseverance. They develop better communication skills and improve their ability to work cooperatively with others.

We are the first Teen Challenge for boys program to install a certified ROPES COURSE and CLIMBING WALL on our property. Our staff is professionally trained and equipped to offer students this effective adventure-based intervention.

The ropes course allows the boys to meet several goals by focusing on positive achievements and confronting personal fears and anxieties. Some adventure-based therapy achievements they will experience while participating in our ropes course include positive risk-taking, improved self-confidence, expanding comfort zones, improved leadership skills, overcoming fears, and an overall increase in personal and team development.  

The course is designed, built, maintained, and operated by our ropes course experts using state-of-the-art safety equipment. Everyone can participate in the ropes course, whether or not physically fit or athletic.

Should you need help finding military schools, military boarding schools, or low cost boarding schools, please let us know. Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch is a Christian therapeutic boarding school and boys home. Boys come to our therapeutic school and home in Northwest Arkansas from across the United States. We help at-risk boys who struggle with behavioral issues. Therapeutic boarding schools and boys homes like Teen Challenge offer behavioral therapy and a rehab for troubled teen boys with teen counseling for boys. The Christian boarding school for troubled boys offers a comprehensive, faith-based program designed to help boys overcome personal and behavioral challenges.  The curriculum combines rigorous academic instruction with Christian teachings, fostering both intellectual growth and moral development. Students engage in daily chapel services, Bible study, and prayer, which help them build a strong spiritual foundation and develop a personal relationship with God. Therapeutic support is a key component of the school, addressing the underlying issues contributing to the students’ difficulties. Counselors and therapists work with the boys individually and in group settings to provide emotional support, coping strategies, and behavior modification techniques. By providing a well-rounded experience, this Christian boarding school aims to equip troubled boys with the tools they need to succeed in life and become productive, compassionate members of society. Through a combination of faith, education, and therapy, our Christian boarding school strives to transform the lives of troubled boys and set them on a positive, fulfilling trajectory.
