40-Day Challenge

Situated on 145+ acres of wooded land in Reelsville, Indiana, the Boys Home 40-Day Challenge provides an absolutely FREE residential camping experience to disadvantaged inner-city youth from all over the state of Indiana. The 40-Day Challenge is a rigorous residential summer program that rescues troubled, low-income teenage boys, ages 13-17, from the negative influences of gangs, drugs, neglect and domestic violence and helps them become responsible, mature and independent young men through spiritual, educational and vocational training.

Our passion is to train at-risk teenage boys to turn away from their destructive lifestyles and to embrace the responsibilities and freedoms that come with true Biblical Manhood.

Many of the young men that come to us demonstrate a lack of respect and discipline. These young men come from neighborhoods filled with crime and fueled by rebellion, and we hope to give them a brighter future through our summer program.
