Family Weight Loss Camp Program in Sunny San Antonio


IMG_0663Children & Adult Weight Loss Experts.  We are the world’s leading experts in helping kids lose weight and get fitter at our Camp Shane kids camps – the longest running childrens’ weight loss camps since 1968, now in four locations. And we are expert at doing the same for adults at our Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts programs in New York and Texas. Our programs have been featured in all the national media, including NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, 20/20, Dr. Phil, MTV, Family Circle and local shows such as WOAI TV and Great Day SA in San Antonio.

We have spoken with and helped literally thousands of families struggling with how to stop being the food police at home and how to find practical, family oriented solutions to the childhood obesity problem that is plaguing our families and our country. We have taken that expertise and rolled it into an exciting, one week summer program for BOTH parents and their children to give them the tools and knowledge to live a healthy lifestyle together at home.

Shane Family Weight Loss Resort Program.  The Shane Family Program is run at the exciting and sun drenched La Cantera Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas on select dates.  The family will spend one week eating healthy and delicious meals and snacks, tying on aprons to learn how to cook yummy recipes from our family friendly menu and cookbook, learning about the basics of nutrition such as reading a food label and what the heck is a carbohydrate anyway?, exploring fun and challenging fitness classes geared both to families together such as our signature Family Ready Set Go class and to the kids and parents separately.  And we tie it all together with Behavior Coaching sessions on topics such as How to Manage Healthy Eating at Home to give the whole family tools to leave the old unhealthy habits in the dust and develop new, healthier ones for life.  Check out a sample day.

Vacation Fun.  Amidst all the healthy activities, there is time for old fashioned vacation fun.  The La Cantera has an incredible range of swimming pools, with a popular kids water slide (10 ft high and 48 ft long) and a fabulous family friendly nature trail, evening movies under the stars and all sorts of optional activities like Six Flags Fiesta Texas (literally next door), Sea World San Antonio,  the famous San Antonio River Walk and the Alamo. The La Cantera also offers Discovery Junction, an experience created just for kids. Open daily from 10 am to 6 pm kids have access to a bouncy house, 28 ft inflatable water slide, obstacle course (including a slip n’ slide), basketball, table tennis, and more!
