Back-to-Nature Boys Ranch
With Awesome Wilderness Treks

A young man’s life is like a frontier — limitless and bounding with potential

Give your son the immersive ranch and wilderness experience of a lifetime. More than a ranch program, the Oasis Boys Ranch wilderness expedition aspect is an amazing and effective way to help preteen and teen boys reset life values, purpose, and priorities. The boys ranch serves young men 10-17 who are struggling socially, academically, or behaviorally. It takes them out of their comfort zone to teach them deep-standing life lessons that will help them flourish for a lifetime. Our campus near Yellowstone National Park plays a pivotal part in the program for at-risk boys. Oasis Boys Ranch intentionally uses “back to nature” wilderness opportunities, with the Rocky Mountains and wide open ranges with a local 2,500-acre ranch, to heal troubled youth. Your son will experience pristine nature on his journey toward restoration and recovery. The boys ranch will build dignity, self-respect, and responsibility in your boy as he experiences living off the grid in the Rocky Mountains. Our program is an excellent opportunity to make an impact on your teen son for a lifetime.

Your Boy Will Love It…And You’ll Love that You Sent Him Here

From the Ranch We Venture on Horseback Into the Vast Wilderness
boys ranch
Your troubled son will never be the same after coming to The Frontier.

From our Base Camp on a working cattle ranch, in the high desert of Northwest Wyoming, to the tops of the Absaroka Mountain Range, your troubled son will begin to understand and appreciate the beauty of the great outdoors and develop a sense of awe that will help him explore the ideas of his place in this world.

The question of “Why am I here?” has many meanings when overlooking the valleys and across the sagebrush, away from family and poor influences. More than a boys ranch, our program offers the wilderness as God’s school room, to teach principles relating to God, Family, and Community.

An Incredibly Life-Changing Time In God’s Great Outdoors

As a safe place for boys with troubled relationships, we use the surrounding outdoor environment as a classroom where your son is taught to face daily challenges head-on, without excuses.

At other places boys who are disruptive often get a “time out,” we give them a “time in” – time in the great outdoors, time in reflection, and time in communication with God.

WILDERNESS TREKS AND COWBOYS – WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!

Many boys ranches, often called “dude” ranches develop their activities on the ranch and cowboy lifestyle. But our program starts at the ranch and moves outward into the wilderness. It is an incredible experiential encounter with nature set in a “cowboy” culture and tradition with beautiful mountain and desert panoramas. All life-changing ranch and wilderness activities include avenues in which boys will experience success, dignity, and gain confidence. Since ranches make their living outside, most activities of our boys ranch are devoted to that environment, but much time is spent off the ranch, out in the Oasis Boys Ranch wilderness. Some outside activities include zip-lining on the campus, geocaching, metal detecting, rockhounding, camping, hiking. Indoor group activities include a wide range of social interactions such as the use of the indoor gym, weightlifting, leather tooling, woodworking crafts, ping pong, pool, card, and board games, etc.

EXPEDITIONS ARE BASED ON THE SEASONS

Spring is involved in outdoor learning about calving and getting ready for summer pasture with the annual branding and sharing the branding tradition with other ranches. This is by far the most favorite time of the year for the boys. Summer is filled with fishing, swimming, boating, and riding. Fall is getting ready for the cows to come home and harvesting. Horseback riding, mechanizing, and harvesting are part of the normal day. Sledding or tubing on the Sunlight mountain range is a favorite activity during the winter. We help boys relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of hiking, fishing, and camping. The whole philosophy of Oasis Boys Ranch is dependent on these experiential learning encounters.

An Authentic Ranch and Wilderness Experience Like None Other

We utilize authentic ranch experiences and a team filled with the love of Christ to heal the troubled and wounded youth in our care. Our program features outdoor education and activities to help rebuild the character and self-respect of each student, making them a morally confident contributing member of society. We believe that the ranch activities that are included in our program will educate the mind, strengthen the body, and dignify the spirit of the young men who are sent here. The program is built to be a unique alternative to traditional methods of behavioral treatment. More than wilderness learning program, our outdoor education program helps teen boys reconnect with God and create a personal foundation rooted in Christian values and principles. Located in the mountains of Wyoming, the mission of the beautiful cattle ranch is to restore struggling boys and give them hope for a bright future.
