Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch admits boys from Arkansas and across the nation on its Arkansas campus. It is unique from all other Teen Challenge programs in that it has private bedrooms for each of the boys. It also features an exciting wilderness program, mission trips and equine therapy.
For teen boys experiencing anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, authority issues, or drug use, we can help. The ability to choose a new path is possible through this Teen Challenge program for adolescent boys. We lovingly train wayward boys to choose a different path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are searching for a Teen Challenge for your boy in Arkansas, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch may be precisely what you are looking for. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Arkansas, but that may be a good thing. Teenage boys needing intervention may need to get away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away and the negative impact of friends there.
Since we became the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families several decades. A relationship with Jesus is the surest way to change in the lives of the teenagers. Every main element of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.
A number of factors distinguish Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch from other similar programs:
MUCH LOWER COST! Teen Challenge is a fraction of the cost of other therapeutic programs.
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.
6-MONTH AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After completion of this Teen Challenge, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have a lot of supervision and personal attention. Also, our staff are highly trained and most have bachelor or master’s degrees in their area of work.
ADVENTURE-BASED THERAPY — Our students have regular opportunities to experience fun and challenging outdoor trips and activities. Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and hiking, climbing and cave exploration. Boys are challenged physically and learn the importance of responsibility, goals and perseverance.
PRIVACY — Rather than a large dorm filled with bunk beds, our students enjoy their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys. We feel that this privacy is important.
Academics mean a lot to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, because we think education strongly supports future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it.
Parents from all over the country, including Arkansas, decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
Residents at Teen Challenge take part in many recreational activities, both on and off campus. We operate an adventure program second to none. Besides being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge. We would love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge, a school in Arkansas, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
