YMCA Camp Weaver History

Originally established in 1955 as Triangle Y Ranch, an all-boys camp that offered archery, swimming, diving, nature lore, shelter and campfire building, and donkey riding. After many years of great camp experiences, it came time for a major overhaul of the camp facilities and infrastructure.

YMCA Camp Weaver Establishment

With a significant investment from the Weaver Family, a new era of camping started in 2003 and the camp was renamed YMCA Camp Weaver under the YMCA of Greensboro association. With a new dining hall, cabins, septic system, expanded lake, and landscaping, the facility transformed into a world-class camp.
