What makes the camp even more appealing for overweight children is that they are being taught the lessons of healthy living in a positive environment where they're surrounded by a support system, as well as other kids who face the same struggles.

The campers are losing weight while having fun. The end goal is to get kids to maintain their new habits long after the summer has ended. Besides targeting young children, Camp Shane offers a program for young ladies 17-25.
