Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch helps boys from New Hampshire on its Northwest Arkansas Campus. It has an exceptional wilderness therapy program, expert counseling and addiction therapy, animal-assisted therapy, and a first-rate educational program, all located on its large new campus.
For teen boys with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, authority issues, or drug use or addictions, hope exists. The ability to choose a new life is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train struggling boys to choose a new path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are searching for a boys ranch in New Hampshire, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be exactly what you are looking for, since getting 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 transformation. Parents from across the nation, including New Hampshire, choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their boy.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for more than five decades. We are certain that a relationship with Jesus is the surest way to transformation in the lives of the boys we serve. Every significant component of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous boys have found success here, even where other programs didn’t work.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure boys have 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.
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.
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 successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys return home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we find that education strongly supports future success. Within our private school with fully accredited courses, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. We offer a GED track for students with too many missing credits to graduate senior high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others.
Students at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch participate in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program that is second to none. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
Many teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son.
