Founded in 1968 Camp Shane is the longest running, co-ed weight loss camp in the country, featured on MTV, The Discovery Channel and 20/20 helping kids from all over the world fight obesity and gain self esteem.
Camp Shane's staff includes an MD, RD and Licensed Therapist. Our five locations in New York, Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas, for ages 8 - 21, are affordable, accessible and life-changing!
Camp Shane New York is located on our privately owned property, 2 hours north of New York City in the beautiful Catskill Mountains famous for its cool summer climate, forests and hills. We offer 50 activities more than you will find at any other weight loss camp. Some favorites are jet skis, go karts, paintball, Zumba, climbing wall, horseback riding, dance, arts and crafts, theatre, and more! Our caring, fun, and nurturing counselors help provide a wonderful environment for our campers. Our focus is on fun as much as on weight loss. Our goal is to have your camper leave armed with the knowledge to continue maintaining their weight loss goals. We offer Cognitive Behavioral Classes to aid in your campers weight loss journey. Ages are 7-17 for boys and girls and we have a Young Adult Program for young woman 18-25 and young men 18-20. We offer three, six and nine week sessions throughout the summer with available weekly extensions.
