Adrenaline High

by Sarah Tuff

The dream: To be like Mike
Go to: Las Vegas
And enroll at: Michael Jordan Flight School

There are dreams and then there are dreams. It's hard to choose which part of the NBA fantasy would be sweeter: playing the game like the master or simply cashing in on his endorsement deals. Dreaming aside, you really can brush elbows with His Airness when he slams a layup on your gravity-bound butt in this four-day camp. Along with 22 elite coaches, including Larry Brown, Jordan spends his time shooting hoops, talking smack, and even hitting the mess hall (uh, cocktail parties and swank eateries) with the lucky 100-some students. Class fees include a limo from the airport, a suite at the Mirage, meals, coaching, goodie bags, photos, videos, and a poker tournament. And since campers must be 35 or older, it also includes a 24-hour-a-day on-call doctor. Caveat: It's a once-a-year thing, so if you're not signed up for the August 2006 session, register for the next year. And start practicing your free throws.
Enrollment: $17,500, including meals and accommodations
