    how about this one?.. :)

    Boulder Outdoor Survival School This might just be the most arduous – and consequently slimming – holiday experience you can pay for. A 14-day field course in the badlands of southern Utah, it teaches the art and philosophy of wilderness survival through genuine puddle-drinking, root-eating hardship, with perhaps 15 miles of hiking a day, no modern gadgets allowed and a period of solo survival to negotiate. Guests have been known to shed two stone in one seriously tough fortnight. To get through this holiday, you will have to kill a sheep. Really.

    The thought has crossed my mind before, but after going to Center Parcs for the first time a couple of months ago, I think I'd rather go there and do activities all day long - would work out a whole lot cheaper than the bootcamp holidays, and you've got relaxing things to do there too.

    God I sound like a sales woman!

    I'm with you on this! My husband & I just got back from CP in Sherwood Forest (We try to go as often as we can) & spent the weekend we got back resting from all of the activities! Lol.

    Just imagine, you could play tennis, go for a hike, swim & then relax at the spa! :D Pure heaven

    You pay for the cabin, rather than per person. I was so impressed with the cabins, don't know what i was expecting, but it certainly exceeded it.

    There's a little village of shops, bars, restaurants and coffee shops with a little supermarket. I must say I was actually pretty impressed with the supermarket, I was expecting over-priced happy shopper, but it was really good quality, and not too expensive either.

    I'd always been put off as i thought it was really expensive, but it's only the more 'extreme' activities which are pricier, plus there's loads of free things to do. I faced my fear of being seen in a swimming costume, and then i didn't want to leave the pool- and there were an awful lot of very big people in there, so it's not like it was full of super-skinny's.

    Just thinking, have you got any boot camps running near you? They seem to be popping up in most towns now and have several intense sessions a week. I know the one in colchester costs £70 for the first month, and then it gets cheaper the longer you're there. You can go to as many sessions as you want, and the local one has about 9 a week at different times.

    Anyway, just another idea!
