60-Year History of Healing and Hope for Hundreds of Boys

therapeutic ranchAs the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for several decades. We feel that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the surest way to change in the lives of the teenagers we serve. Every significant part of our program is biblically based. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenagers have realized success here, even where other programs didn’t work.

Several factors set Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch apart from other therapeutic boarding schools: 

  • MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low to ensure boys have an abundance 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.

  • MORE 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.

  • MORE FAMILY VISITS — Residents are allowed to visit family on seasonally scheduled breaks.

  • MORE 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 back home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
