These are both big money items.

Does anyone have experience with either or both?

Trying to decide which one of these to do.

Hi there,

I've worked for both organizations, and they are both great training experiences. You can't go wrong either way. I'm less familiar with UX Intensive's format since I left Adaptive Path, so you could follow up with them to get more info. But, I can speak to UX Boot Camp (I teach it along with other designers at Cooper):

UX Boot Camp is an immersive workshop (not a conference) oriented around a real-world problem for a nonprofit client. It's small (about 35 people), so you get a lot of one-on-one coaching. The main differentiator of this training is that it is about applied, hands-on learning, rather than theoretical. So, you'll learn new approaches and techniques to UX design, and you'll immediately put them into practice as you collaborate with people from all over the world to solve a problem for a nonprofit. You get the experience of working with a real client, you pitch to them, you get their feedback, and you end up with a solid concept for your portfolio. It's a transformative experience for most of our students. I'd be happy to put you in touch with a past student, if you want to hear their take on it. Just let me know:
Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any more questions.
