Boys Ranch with Adventure-Based Learning and Wilderness Therapy, Now Enrolling Boys Who are Struggling, Year-Round
The Adventure Ranch has for 50 years helped troubled boys year-round on its Arkansas Campus. It is unique in so many ways, particularly that it has private bedrooms for each of the boys, an exciting wilderness adventure program, and dual-diagnosis treatment, for boys with addictions.
For teen boys dealing with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, authority issues, or drug use or addictions, hope exists. An opportunity for a new life is available through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train wayward boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are searching for a boys ranch, Adventure Ranch may be precisely what you are searching for, since spending time away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away–apart from the effect of friends and familiar places—could be exactly what he needs to cause a big change. Parents from across the nation choose Adventure Ranch for their boy.
Boys Ranch with Healing and Hope for Thousands of Boys Over the Past Five Decades
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for several decades. We are certain that a relationship with Christ is the surest way to healing in the lives of the young men we serve. Every significant component of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many young men have discovered success here, even where other programs failed.
A few factors distinguish the Adventure Ranch for boys from other therapeutic boys ranches:
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure 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.
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.
FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to make visits to home on seasonally scheduled breaks.
ADDICTION TREATMENT — Our program is a licensed dual-diagnosis Addiction Treatment Center with staff expertly trained to treat substance abuse, as well as harmful lifestyle addictions to gambling, pornography, or online gaming.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from Adventure Ranch, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
The Boys Ranch Features a Private School with Fully Accredited Courses
Education means a lot to us at Adventure Ranch for boys, because we think education holds the key to future success. In our private school with fully accredited courses, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for anyone with too few credits to complete senior high school on time. 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.
Residents at Adventure Ranch engage in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and working well with others.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Adventure Ranch, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
