David Ettenberg and Ziporah Janowski, the founders and owners of Camp Shane, are proud to announce the creation of Shane Cares. Shane Cares is a not for profit organization that offers Camp Shane’s successful summer weight loss programs to children and teens who are living with economic struggle. David and Ziporah have committed their lives to helping families succeed in the ongoing battle against obesity. The founding of Shane Cares ensures the opportunity of success to all families, regardless of their economic position in life.


The mission of Shane Cares is to aid economically challenged children who are facing the daily struggles of obesity. To help them learn how to begin and continue a healthy lifestyle; to laugh together through fun camp activities and games; to support them as they naturally lose weight, through proper nutrition and physical activity.

Learn, laugh, lose- that is our mission.
