Struggling to lose weight should not be a way of life. We will help you get off the perpetual diet hamster wheel.
Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts is a life-changing destination weight loss resort program designed especially for guests determined to live happier and healthier lives. The program is owned and operated by owners of Camp Shane, the longest running children and young adult weight loss camps since 1968.
Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts is not a boot camp nor your conventional “fat camp.” We offer a complete and integrative approach to losing weight and wellness. We’re an all-inclusive retreat where you learn to make foundational changes allowing a healthier, more productive life. No gimmicks, fads or easy fixes, and backed by nearly fifty years of experience in the weight loss industry.
Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts are not traditional fat camps or fitness boot camps. Our weight loss resort program is designed to be both fun and challenging while allowing time for rest and reflection in a beautiful vacation resort location with amenities you’d expect from luxury resort vacations.
Our approach to effective, safe and sustainable weight loss rests on our five principles: The Shane Experience, Nutrition, Behavior Change, Fitness and Integrative Wellness.
Our team of professional registered dietitians and food service experts designed our weight loss menus. You’ll be served delicious, portion-controlled meals and snacks, included in your program fee. We take flavor, taste and even color into consideration. We don’t serve unappealing, bland or overly restricted food, for a simple reason: If you enjoy your food, your appetite for midnight refrigerator raids will diminish while your taste for clean eating will increase.
We understand that our guests have different needs and food tolerances. Our menu is adapted to each guest’s allergies, food tolerances and needs such as lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, diabetes, pre and post bariatric and lap band surgery, and more.
FITNESS and MOVEMENTWe accommodate all fitness levels and have experts to evaluate your readiness to return to an active lifestyle or take on new challenges. Our daily fitness classes take place in the fitness centers at the resort, but every week we take our guests off property to other locations, at both gyms or natural environments, for a break in the fitness routine and to take in the natural beauty of the area.
SPA and SALON SERVICES
While our guests enjoy the private lodging and lounge sections at the resort, they also have total access to all of the amenities enjoyed by resort guests. This includes swimming pools, fitness center, tennis courts, and the spa and salon, which is a perfect destination for post-exercise relaxation. All Shane guests receive 15% discounted spa services.

This resort is situated on 250 acres in a scenic valley surrounded by by the Catskills Mountains – a serene place to spend time, relax, regroup, and lose weight. The Catskills have been a family-friendly tourist destination for more than a century due its proximity to New York City, where families came to escape the city summer heat.

I have felt confident continuing to lose weight at home not just to continue my new found love of life but also because I am surrounded by continued support. I am still in regular contact with the staff and the other friends I made last summer and I am armed with the tools that Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts taught me during my stay. In fact, I am hoping to return this year to Camp Shane in the hope to show my appreciation and perhaps help others who struggled like I have.
