Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch helps boys from Oregon and across the nation on its Arkansas campus. It is uncommon 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 with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal problems, or drug or alcohol abuse, we can help. The ability to choose a new path is possible through this Teen Challenge program for adolescent boys. We lovingly train at-risk 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 Oregon, consider that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch may be exactly what you are looking for. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Oregon, but that may be a good thing. Teens in need of intervention may need time away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away and the influences of friends there.
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for over 40 years. A relationship with Jesus is the surest way to a lasting difference in the lives of the boys. Every significant element of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.
A number of factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart 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 home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low in order that boys have a lot of supervision and one-on-one 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.
Academics mean a great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, because we believe education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling.
Parents from all over the nation, including Oregon, decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
Residents at Teen Challenge take part in numerous recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program. As well as being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and dealing well with others.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge. We would like to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge, a school in Oregon, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.

|More about Teen Challenge in Oregon: |
Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east. The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon’s northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859.
Oregon is the 9th most extensive and the 27th most populous of the 50 United States. Salem is the state’s capital and third-most-populous city; Portland is the most populous. Portland is the 29th-largest U.S. city, with a population of 583,776 (2010 US Census) and a metro population of 2,241,841 (2009 estimate), the 23rd-largest U.S. metro area. The valley of the Willamette River in western Oregon is the state’s most densely populated area and is home to eight of the ten most populous cities.
Oregon contains a diverse landscape including the windswept Pacific coastline, the volcanoes of the rugged and glaciated Cascade Mountain Range, many waterfalls (including Multnomah Falls), dense evergreen forests, mixed forests and deciduous forests at lower elevations, and high desert across much of the eastern portion of the state, extending into the Great Basin. The tall Douglas firs and redwoods along the rainy Western Oregon coast contrast with the lower density and fire prone pine tree and juniper forests covering portions of the eastern half of the state. Alder trees are common in the west and fix nitrogen for the conifers and aspen groves are common in eastern Oregon. Stretching east from Central Oregon, the state also includes semi-arid shrublands, prairies, deserts, steppes, and meadows. Mount Hood is the highest point in the state at 11,249 feet (3,429 m). Crater Lake National Park is the only national park in Oregon.
