From Surfing to Cooking:  20 Camps Adults Will Love   Oh the places you can go!
What it is:  Four days of bonding with Fido.

Summer Camps for Grown-Ups, Time Magazine

Been neglecting your best friend lately? At Camp Unleashed, you can reconnect with Fido at a rustic YMCA campsite in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts at the end of August. (Can’t make it in the summer? There’s a second Camp Unleashed in mid-October that’s held in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, N.C.) For four days — that’s almost a month in dog years! — you can bond with your pup doing canine-friendly activities like agility courses, walks, swimming, frisbee-chasing and flyball. If your pooch is a couch potato, you can “sit” and “stay” with lower-key activities like canine massage and aromatherapy. There’s even “doga” — dog yoga. Owners can also attend workshops on topics like obedience training, grooming and nutrition.
