therapeutic boarding school for boys

An Ideal Opportunity
for Troubled and At-Risk Boys

Vero Beach Boys Ranch is a non-profit Teen Challenge residential program designed for boys who are struggling. We have two well-equipped campuses; one in Vero Beach, Florida and our advanced campus is in Jesup, Georgia. Our residents enjoy a well-equipped gym and weight room, soccer, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, swimming, fishing, hiking, camping, rafting, horseback riding, and more. Our professional fishing boats are kept busy taking the boys on frequent fishing trips in the area waterways and Atlantic ocean. We use adventure as an opportunity to form strong relationships with each boy with a goal to bring about life-change.

    Winston Chutrchill said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” Horses are an important part of our therapeutic boarding school at Vero Beach Boys Ranch.

    Music is good for the soul…and music plays a big role in the therapeutic programs at Vero Beach Boys Ranch. Many of the boys bring their own instruments and have impromptu jam sessions throughout the day.

    Fishing for Serenity

    Washington Irving said, “There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind.” We agree with that, which is why the boys spend a great deal of time on Florida waterways.

Our Boarding School

Features Adventure Outings

Hiking, canoeing, camping, and outdoor activities are usually not a part of the lives of most young people today, but they are with the boys here. God’s great outdoors is a great place for each of us to connect with each other and with God. It is through these fun outings that we so often are able to get the root of the issues in a boy’s life. It’s an easy place to talk and share hurts and pains; then the campfire that evening gives opportunity to further talk and pray for one another. These trips are memory makers that last a lifetime!

What Parents Have To Say About

Vero Beach Boys Ranch!

We had tried everything we could think of for our troubled son — all to no avail. Vero Beach taught John self-control, physical work and teamwork, leadership skills and integrity. John received love, discipline, forgiveness, and persistent mentoring from dedicated staff members. This was a God-send for our broken family… restoring our relationship with our son. It is a place of hope, a place of love, and a place of renewal.”
