Helping Troubled Teen
Founded in 2004 by former N.F.L. player Scott McGarrahan, Resolution Ranch Academy’s behavioral camp for youth in Texas helps boys struggling with behavioral issues — such as depression, rebellion, and A.D.H.D. Teen boys get back on track toward a positive future. For an average of six to nine months, boys ages 13 to 17 live on our behavioral camp for youth campus in Cameron, Texas. Our positive, nurturing environment focuses on guiding personal growth through responsibility, gratitude, and open communication based on our effective R.A.N.C.H. therapy system, known as Recovery and Academics through Nature, Counseling, and Healing, which includes behavioral therapy.
Our behavioral camp for youth in Texas focuses on helping teen boys modify self-destructive behavior while realizing they can succeed in life in Goleta, California even if they’ve failed in the past. Resolution Ranch Academy’s behavioral camp for youth in Texas helps them learn new skills in communication and self-management. Through our unique curriculum program that includes academics, art therapy, equine therapy, and traditional therapy, teen boys can explore their talents and discover new interests to enhance their self-worth.

Recreational Activities At Our Behavioral Camp for Youth in Texas
Students thrive when they have downtime every day for recreational activities. The Ranch is a place for self-reflection, life changes, and also fun. When students move up levels in the program or earn certain achievements, they are rewarded with additional activities and privileges, such as off-site field trips. In this way, students build self-confidence and enjoy the rewards of openness and positivity. Activities at the Ranch include:
