We lovingly train troubled boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.

As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for several decades. We feel that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the best source of change in the lives of the young men we serve. Every main portion of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless young men are finding success here, even where other programs failed.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure boys get plenty 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.
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.
FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to visit family on regularly scheduled breaks.
ADDICTION TREATMENT — Our program is a licensed dual-diagnosis Addiction Treatment Center with staff expertly trained to treat addictions to alcohol or drugs, as well as harmful lifestyle addictions to gambling, pornography, or online gaming.
EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we feel education is critical for future success. In our private school with fully accredited courses, boys study courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who need it. We offer a GED option for those with not enough credits to complete senior high school in a timely manner. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch take part in a multitude 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 young men have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.
