Check out this Canadian twist on city-slicker couples therapy…

Kick-start your relationship with a weekend at Elkin Creek Guest Ranch Couples Bootcamp (September 24 - 27, 2009), cowboy certified to help couples reconnect and ride off into the romantic sunset. 

Designed to rekindle romance, encourage teamwork and add in a taste of unexpected adventure, the Couples Bootcamp promises to whip any hum-drum relationship back into shape. The 3-night package is priced at $675.00 USD (based on a 1.22 exchange rate) per person and includes three nights of luxurious accommodation, gourmet meals, and the Elkin Creek Guest Ranch’s complete Couples Bootcamp program and activities. 

Couples Bootcamp participants will be guided by cow boss Ian Bridge Dennis Moore and his team of wranglers at the 28,000-acre Elkin Creek Guest Ranch. Set in the heart of British Columbia’s spectacular Chilcotin Mountains, the Couples Bootcamp will take couples through a fun-filled program built around the authentic working ranch. Come together as a team as you learn how to saddle up, ride horses, and rope and handle livestock. To top it off, couples will be handed and a picnic basket lunch with all the fixin’s for a romantic ride off into the wilderness.


Off the range, couples can choose to take part in some of the ranch’s other outdoor activities such as river kayaking, canoeing, fly-fishing, mountain biking, hiking, windsurfing, or simply cuddle up, relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air and breathtaking scenery. Set at the edge of Vedan Lake beside Mount Tatlow, the options are endless.
