Family Fun From Dusk ‘Til Dawn

Gather your family and have a getaway weekend at YMCA Triangle Y Ranch! Nestled in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains outside of Oracle, Arizona and just 40 miles north of Tucson, the camp has 400 acres within the Coronado National Forest. We offer unique outdoor experiences that include hiking on nature trails, horseback riding, archery, arts and crafts, and so much more. Both parents and children will enjoy a sense of adventure and exploration while sharing unforgettable moments that bond families and create lasting memories.

2017 dates

Memorial Day Weekend: May 27-29
Labor Day Weekend: September 2-4


Our lodges offer privacy with just one family per room, all are heated, and have “home” thickness mattresses with a private bath.
Our cabins are scattered in many different areas of camp, and are placed in village settings. Clustered cabins share a main building with restrooms and showers. Each cabin has 14 beds, “camp” thickness mattresses, and based on registration, some families may share a cabin with other families.
