Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch enrolls boys from Utah 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 top academics, licensed addiction treatment (insurance accepted), an awesome wilderness adventure program, mission trips, and equine therapy.
For teen boys experiencing anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, authority issues, 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 troubled boys to choose a new path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are interested in a Teen Challenge for your boy in Utah, take into account that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be precisely what you are searching for. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Utah, but that may be a good thing. Boys in need of intervention may need to get away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away and the influences of friends there.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for upwards of 40 years. A relationship with Jesus is the primary avenue for transformation in the lives of the boys. Every main portion of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.
Several 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 successfully finishing this Teen Challenge, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have lots 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.
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 great deal to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, because we think education holds the key to future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it.
Parents from all over the country, including Utah, choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
Students at Teen Challenge participate in a variety of 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.
Many boys 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 the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge, a school in Utah, or another option, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
