Adventure camps for adults

Gary Hofstetter, president of a private equity real estate fund in Boston, describes himself as a "suit on State Street." That’s quite a change from the late 1960s and early 1970s, when he was a wild-haired, rock-loving roadie for local bands in Upstate New York.

See our list of the world’s quirkiest camps for adults.

"In recent years, the number of specialized camp opportunities for adults has grown significantly," says Peg L.

Smith, chief executive officer of The American Camp Association (ACA). "In a hectic world, it offers an oasis, with opportunities for learning in a fun environment." And more people are opting for unique learning programs over your typical park-yourself-on-a-beach getaway.

"Many adults find a camp vacation to be more rewarding than a week at a resort," says Smith.

Consider the Crush Camp experience at Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines in California.

The three-day intensive program teaches students how to take wine from vine to glass while feasting on gourmet food.

Campers pick grapes, tasting and smelling as they go to understand the difference between a chardonnay and a fume blanc.

"We learned that by tweaking one variable, it makes a huge difference creating the ultimate bottle," explains camper Paul Burek, who attended the camp in 2006.

In Gary Hofstetter’s case, the reward was living out a dream.
