It’s simple. It’s free. And it makes your life so much easier.

By signing your camp up for the Shape Up program, you’re signaling the importance you place on healthy habits and the health of young people—a key factor that influences which camp parents choose for their kids.

Shape Up offers training, guidance, and a whole host of tools to help you incorporate healthy habits into your camp practices while simplifying your life. Our goal is to help your camp become a place that’s more conducive than ever to the adoption of healthy habits by campers.

Sign up for Shape Up today and start enjoying these great benefits:

- Interactive training sessions tailored to the specific situations of camps, geared toward improving practices, and designed to be passed on effectively to all your team members.
