Summer on a Working Horse and Cow Ranch

Few images capture the imagination more strongly than that of the American Cowboy – this powerful icon of the American West captivates and inspires teens who have become jaded and hostile toward authority.  The Ranch setting takes teens out of their comfort zone and reminds them that success is achieved through teamwork and cooperation.. They learn that while they might feel entitled to get what they want, when they want it, in the real world rewards come through dedication and hard work.

Turn-About Ranch differs from typical programs because it values action not just talk. Your teen participates in therapy and goes to school, but they also participate in the daily running of the ranch. They feed the chickens at dawn and bring the cows in before dusk. These real-life experiences enhance the therapeutic process – we put behavioral changes in action, which is much more effective than just talking about changing behavior.

The mission of Turn-About Ranch is to empower our students with traditional Christian values of honesty, openness, respect, teamwork, and accountability in order to instill a positive, responsible, cooperative attitude that will prepare them for successfully living within their family, community, and society. Students typical stay at the ranch for 80-100 days.
