    not like other “fat camps”; we treat our campers with compassion and kindness.

    it is. We’re a lot of fun, very friendly and we really care
    about one another.

Weight Loss Camps | Better Than Fat Camp


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 an incredible experience 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, health and self esteem.
