Here on the 50,000-acre working ranch and farm in rustic Wyoming, troubled young boys, ages 10-17, experience important life lessons that change them for good. Struggles in today’s culture quickly fade as boys understand key principles taught at Triangle Cross Ranch & Trade School.
And here’s where your boy’s spiritual, physical and mental transformation begins! Young men at Triangle Cross Therapeutic Ranch & Trade School face physical challenges daily caring for 1,000 cattle on our working cowboy ranch. Plus, in the classroom and workshop, students must tackle their academic/trade school goals. Working, learning, and riding side by side, students travel new paths that lead to new life perspectives.
With over 30 years of helping boys renew and grow, our licensed professional counselors, and experienced, committed staffers promote Christian family principles and demonstrate Christ’s love to every at-risk boy enrolled at Triangle Cross Ranch. Our team provides personal attention, focused academics, and trade school education — what each student needs based on his strengths, skills, and interests. And as part of our effective Reality Counseling, we always practice the “Code of the West.”
“Helping At-Risk Young Men Renew Their Mind, Body & Spirit.”
“Through the love of Christ, we aim to educate the mind, strengthen the body, and elevate the spirit of each at-risk young man at Triangle Cross Ranch. Healing transformation begins when struggling young men recognize that life is sacred and discover their God-given talents in His wonderful Creation.”
That’s why, as Christians, we create and use an authentic cowboy experience to heal mentally, emotionally troubled, wounded young men, ages 10-17. We help them find new life filled with Christlike love.
A New Beginning
No matter what hinders the mental and physical health of a young man, he deserves a new beginning, regardless of how rocky that fresh start may be! Although healing internal struggles comes down to the young man himself, our program involves living, working, praying and overcoming obstacles together, as a team.
Through our program, your teen will learn to handle the difficulties that life can bring and learn to be responsible for himself and others in his care. And he’ll learn the ‘simple’ way of life as he trains in:
- Ranch Management
By changing his current lifestyle, your son will go through ‘real life’ cowboy therapy–on the ranch, at the farm, and in the great outdoors. Through participation and self-motivation, he’ll uncover his inner strengths and weaknesses. Triangle Cross Ranch not only helps him deal with issues and stresses in a healthy and appropriate manner once they leave, but also helps him recognize his personal responsibilities in life back home.
Yes, ranch life may be simple, but it’s never easy. Young men in our program face lots of trials. But this kind of hands-on living fosters personal growth, and maturity, as he walks through its challenging experiences.
Located in the rustic mountainous country near Yellowstone Park in Wyoming.
Where At-Risk Boys Walk New Roads, Gain New Lives
Support His Journey
Every young man’s life journey differs, but every trail involves a deeper knowledge and understanding of his developing personality. In turn, each student’s journey at Triangle Cross Ranch guides him to acknowledge and understand:
- Essence of character
- Spiritual love
- Personal insight and responsibility
Most of the youth who come to Triangle Cross Ranch are from large metropolitan areas. Here they experience a totally new environment steeped with beauty, challenge, and excitement. Getting him out of his comfort zone allws each boy to discover himself in the quietness of God’s creation: the mountainous country near Yellowstone Park is one of the last real wildernesses in the continental US. Society recognizes the growing need to serve troubled youth outside of brick and mortar institutions. Ranches are of inestimable value in this endeavor. Conventional school systems tend to keep the boys in a “box” and they become bored and act out. At Triangle Cross Ranch they are let out of the “box” to explore and follow their natural instincts and talents.
New Paths, New Views!
Our back-to-basics, log-style buildings on a remote, rural ranch in Wyoming helps your young man appreciate what you provide for him back home. He learns not to take his opportunities for granted and opens up to gratitude in this life that helps him journey through it. The young men that join Triangle Cross Ranch leave with a deeper respect for authority, self-discipline, and the work ethic that helps them successfully transition into adulthood.
