As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for nearly 60 years. We feel that a relationship with Jesus is the surest way to transformation in the lives of the boys we serve. Every significant element of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many boys have found success here, even where other programs failed.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys have 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 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.
