About the program
Welcome to the Camp Zone
Shape Up is a program that supports day camps and summer camps in their efforts to incorporate healthy habits into their practices. The objective is to encourage young people to adopt healthy eating behaviors and a physically active lifestyle for life.
To achieve this objective, Shape Up reaches out to camp managers, food service managers, coordinators, counselors, and monitors.
In partnership with experts in the fields of healthy eating, physical activity, and recreation, and in cooperation with camps, Shape Up has developed a series of services and tools designed specifically to help camps incorporate healthy habits.
These tools focus on various aspects, including management, communication, formation, activity offerings, programming, and food service. While they were designed for day camps and summer camps, they can in fact be useful for any organization working with young people. Some of the tools are for Shape Up member camps only, while others are available free of charge to all:
