You’re going to look great after a summer at Camp Shane!

We’re a summer camp to lose weight, but here weight loss is only one of our awesome programs. We are not a Diet Camp, a fat camp or a boot camp. We’re not like other “fat camps” who treat their campers like they’re in boot camp. We don’t make being overweight a bigger problem than it is. We’re a lot of fun and very friendly. We really care about each other. Camp Shane weight loss camps are for girls and boys, teens and young adult women where you feel comfortable, welcome and good about yourself! We know exactly what you’re going through. We’re here to help you succeed and have the best time of your life.

Camp Shane - Weight Loss Camps - Weight Loss Camp - NOT a Fat Camp

A summer weight loss camp that kids and parents love

Where fun, nice people, great activities, fabulous camp grounds, nutritional education and behavioral therapy combine. Fun is key at camp Shane!! Running the best weight loss camps in the country means proven results, overcoming obstacles and having the time of your life while making lifelong friendships.

We are not a fat camp nor are we a boot camp. A fat camp treats their campers like members of the military – we treat our campers like family. We run our weight loss camp no different than a traditional camp but with all the benefits of weight loss, improved fitness and self esteem.
