Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch helps boys from Oregon on its Northwest Arkansas Campus. It has private bedrooms for each of the boys, an awesome wilderness program, and it includes mission trips and equine therapy.
For teen boys dealing with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal issues, or minor drug or alcohol abuse, hope exists. A chance at a new path is possible through Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We lovingly train struggling 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 in Oregon, be aware that Teen Challenge 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 influence of friends and familiar places—could be precisely the right thing to spark a big change. Parents from around the nation, including Oregon, decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their boys.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for several decades. We feel that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the young men we serve. Every major part of our program is biblically-based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many young men have discovered success here, even where other programs failed.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have plenty of supervision and one-on-one 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 normal 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 graduation from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we think education forms a foundation for future success. Within our private school with fully accredited courses, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED option for students with not enough credits to graduate high school in an appropriate time frame. Credits earned can transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others.
Teens at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch take part in a multitude of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We facilitate 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 cooperating 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. We would be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son.
