Your home away from home

For more than 70 years, the Triangle Y Ranch has served as a pillar of the community hosting thousands of guests from Southern Arizona and beyond. Surrounded by breathtaking views of the Galiuro and Santa Catalina Mountains, Tri Y is the perfect setting for retreat groups and overnight camp. Whether you’re six or 106, Tri Y is an absolute treat for kids and adults alike. Our summer is devoted to overnight and overnight camp for youths ages 6-17.  We’re one of the top camps in the region and host about 1,000 campers every season. An oasis from the city life, the ranch is nothing but endless days of fun, activities, s’mores, and so much more!

Improvements at our Triangle Y Ranch Camp 

CLIMBING MESA – When replacement of our climbing tower at Triangle Y Ranch Camp was necessary we took the opportunity to develop a plan for a new course that would provide more programming for those with disabilities. The Challenge Course plan was developed and with $120,000 in support from Fiesta Bowl Charities, Union Pacific Foundation, and YMCA of the USA we completed Phase 1. The first tower constructed is engineered and designed for a variety of activities including over 10 ascent challenges and more than a dozen low-to-the-ground group initiatives. The tower also includes a zip line and giant swing. The Y is currently fundraising for phase 2 of the Challenge Course which includes a more traditional climbing tower and observation deck.

CAMPFIRE AREA and DIRECTOR’S HOUSE – Construction of the new Campfire will be completed before the 2022 summer campers arrive. The new YMCA Director’s house construction has progressed with the foundation laid, electrical panels installed and framing beginning to arrive. Both of these projects are made possible due to the generosity of the Margaret E. Mooney Foundation.
