Excursions – New York

We offer exciting day trips each week, such as walks in a beautiful 2,000-acre state park and refreshing dips in a nearby natural lake. If you are feeling the need for a little retail therapy, join us at Woodbury Common Premium Outlet Stores. Splurge on a little black dress at Dolce & Gabbana or new (way smaller) jeans at The Gap. Or pick a piece of art for your dorm room or office at the artists’ colony of Woodstock.

Sam’s Point

Perched atop the highest point of the Shawangunk Ridge lies Sam’s Point Preserve — 5,400 acres. Home to nearly 40 rare plant and animal species and three rare natural communities, the northern Shawangunks represent one of the highest priorities for conservation in the Northeastern United States. Today, the preserve is owned by the Open Space Institute and offers many gorgeous trails through forests and over massive rock formations featuring fabulous views.

Lippman Park


Lippman Park is a stunning park consisting of both open and wooded areas that are intended for recreational use. Grass is kept short for optimum enjoyment of outdoor activities to keep insects low. Lippman is good for both inactive and active pastimes. Some of these include trails, picnic tables, mountain biking, soccer and basketball to name a few.

Swinging Bridge Lake

Located just 30 minutes from Shane Diet & Fitness Resorts’ New York program is the beautiful, pristine, nine-mile long Swinging Bridge Lake. On a lovely wooded site with a sandy beach front, this is Camp Shane’s Water Sport Facility. Twice during the season, our guests spend the day here taking motor boat and Jet Ski rides, tubing, waterskiing and taking banana boat rides. It’s a favorite day our guests look forward to.

Mountain Creek Water Parkmountain_creek

 Get wet and crazy at Mountain Creek Water Park. Guests can ride the High Tide Wavepool, Tarzan Swings, Alpine Pipleine and Cannonball Falls among other attractions. Don’t forget your bathing suit!

Kelder’s Farm

Kelder’s Farm, a century farm in operation since 1836, is set among the broad fields and soaring cliffs of the beautiful Rondout Valley. This lovely and surprising farm is a Shane favorite. Enjoy a tour of the farm, meet and feed the animals, pick berries, take a hay ride and play mini-golf. Enjoyable for all ages!

Just for Fun Dance Lessons

From belly dancing to salsa or maybe a little merengue, you can’t beat dance for a way to fight fat and boredom. Whether you’ve got two left feet or are a prime candidate for Dancing With The Stars, we guarantee you’ll laugh a lot and get a great workout while really rocking your new body.
