Since we became the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for several decades. We believe that a relationship with Christ is the best source of a lasting difference in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every significant portion of our program is biblically-based. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenagers have realized 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 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 visit family on seasonally 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 back home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
Education means much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for Boys, because we believe education holds the key to future success. Within our private school with fully accredited courses, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. We offer a GED opportunity for boys with too few credits to complete 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 for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more.
Boys at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch engage in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
