About Camp Director
by Fonda Michigan
My personal affiliation with David Ettenberg goes back to the summer of 2001. Both of my children were overweight and wanted to go to Camp Shane for part of the summer. As much as I would have loved to send them I simply could not afford the tuition. I had been a single mother for 16 years therefore camp seemed out of the question. Endless begging from my daughters made me call the camp directly in the hopes of speaking to someone to see if there was any way possible to get a tuition rebate or payment plan. I was put through to the camps owner David Ettenberg who took the time to listen to my story. While most of the campers come from families who were able to afford the tuition, David Ettenberg turned out to be my family’s guardian angel. He adjusted the tuition and created an affordable plan for us to budget which gave me the opportunity to send both my daughters for 4 summers in a row. Mr Ettenberg is such a kind man! He is a man of exemplary morals and a wonderful human being. He has a heart of gold, and is my personal hero for having helped my children get healthy. If one can see the transition in a child that was once overweight to a child that is now glowing with self confidence, it would make you cry. To have watched the changes take place in my own children is something I will forever be grateful for. It is because of David Ettenberg’s kindness that my children have their life back! ! David Ettenberg and Camp Shane are angels to thousands of children who are unhappy being overweight. I feel that David should get a noble prize for his part in helping to make our children healthy. Thank you David Ettenberg for having created such a wonderful place.
