Hi Nelson,

Thanks very much for considering a poor researcher!!  I have done some
further research and added extra items at the bottom of this answer.
Most programs seem to last from 3-6 weeks, details are outlined below:
Canyon Ranch a health spa In Tucson, Arizona offers the chance to
enlist in their Boot Camp (
'Boot Camp at Canyon Ranch in Tucson is a little less intimidating,
but equally as challenging as The Real Thing. Meant more for fun and
fitness than bullying and belittling, Boot Camp is the only level-III
class offered - and it's not for sissies....
 The cardio activities include jumping rope, stepping, hill-climbing
and running in place while hoisting an eight-pound “rifle” (in the
form of a heavy bar). Pushups (what else?), walking lunges and
plyomteric exercises (ones where you move your entire body at once,
like long jumps) complete the formation. And when you’ve finished the
15-minute cycle, what do you do? You get a three-minute rest and do it
all over again!'
Read the full article at (You will need to
have Adobe Acrobat Reader as this is a PDF file).
Other military style boot camps which I found are: 
The Bulldog Boot Camp ( runs 4 week
Boot Camp programs, as does the Beverly Hills Boot Camp
( and The Castaldi Boot Camp
The article 'Latest Fitness Trend: Boot Camp' by Stephanie Oakes
( also discusses
various boot camps in the USA too.

I have also found....
Community BootCamp in California: 'Each BootCamp session is five weeks
long and meets Monday-Friday. Classes are one hour in length and
include cardiovascular exercise, strength training, daily stretching,
abdominal work, stairs, hills, push-ups, and more.'

Boot Camp Fitness by Reese: 'Boot Camp Fitness by Reese is a 4 week
outdoor fitness camp designed to get you into peak physical shape in
minimal time. Using the same techniques used to train military
personnel and Special Forces, I will help you reach your fitness goals
and improve your overall health.'

Women's Boot Camps:

And various fitness courses at Mountain Trek Fitness Retreat & Health
Spa, British Columbia:

Search Strategy:
I used the following terms in Google:
"boot camp"  vacation:
"Boot Camp" adult fitness:
"Boot camp" fitness:

Still none of a week's duration though -looks like you'll have to take
a longer vacation!!

Kind regards,
