Due to an injury I haven't done anything to stay in shape, other than push-ups, sit ups and leg raises before I sleep.
I need to be back in shape for June, and in excellent shape for July 1 when I'll be doing a crazy boxing camp-thing.
Any suggestions?

Make sure you don't go overboard and overtrain yourself. You have a decent amount of time to get back into shape before your camp so you dont need to over due it.

Can you do body weight squats? What about "marching" or running in place?

I've done em both in the house while watching tv and found some benefits to my cardio and weight control.

A healthy diet goes a long way.

Do some pushups, sit ups, jogging on the spot, burpees, squat jumps, jumping jacks, and straight arm punches in a circuit for about 4 rounds each one 30 seconds each. That would work for one routine for each day.

running/jogging and a good diet are probably your best bet, seeing how you have a month+ to get in shape just create a routine and diet that best suits your lifestyle and stick with it it shouldn;t take you to long to get back into the swing of things.
