As someone who has experience in both fitness training and start up consultation (inc. workshops public speaking, facilitation etc), I have always wondered if there was a way to merge the two together. Recently I came across a fitness and partying weekender where people pay to spend the weekend working out and partying.
What if I could take that concept and merger fitness and enterprise ideation into a weekender - mixing gaining control of our bodies with gaining control of our business ideas
Does anyone here think that would be a viable idea? Is anyone else doing this?

Sounds like a cute idea, I see how it would be easy to the fitness part. But how would you provide business education in a weekend, apprentice style challenges?

Yes, team based workouts in the mornings broken up with enterprise challenges in the afternoon. Kind of a rotation of exercise and enterprise

Incubators with added fitness aspects so perhaps a 48 hour incubator (Friday to Sunday) with fitness classes breaking it up in between to get the blood and ideas flowing etc

The Happy Startup School does things like this, albeit without the fitness element. Entrepreneurship can be very stressful at times, and people often neglect thier own wellbeing. So there's certainly merit in the idea of covering both sides.

Perfect, wasn't aware that there were dedicated summer camps in UK doing enterprise.
Perhaps, it would be great to look at how it could be infused?
As I see, you're holding camps in the woods etc it would be perfect for the type of fitness that I focus on which is body weight only but also making use of your surroundings (so trees, hills, benches etc)
would love to know more

I suppose looking to small music festivals for planning is a good idea. Quite a few about, good amount of resources/plans online, and pretty much all the same considerations - accomodation, activities, scheduling, guest speakers etc.
I've never been to one of these camps, but from what I see they're making use of a campsite/glampsite (is that a word?!). If you can strike a bulk deal with a campsite at an off-peak time, then a lot of your work is already done.
