13th Annual Mickey’s Camp for men!
Mickey's Camp was the long-time dream of local businessman Mickey Maurer. In 2001, this dream came true with the inaugural Mickey's Camp. In the past twelve years, Mickey's Camp enabled adults to leave behind daily pressures, explore new opportunities, perfect old skills and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow campers in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
Last year more than 110 men attended the 12th annual men's camp. The women and men's camps combined to raise more than $175,000 for 140 local charities. This year we are proud to present an extraordinary array of experts for the 13th Annual Mickey's Camp, scheduled for August 14-16, at Bradford Woods Outdoor Center.
Your time will be filled with exciting 90-minute sessions throughout Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Options include gourmet cooking, Vodka tasting, horseback riding, Scrabble®, stand up paddleboarding, billiards and so much more. You may also relax around the pool, have a massage or read a good book. Evening activities promise to be equally enjoyable as you will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with Jeff Saturday, dine on delicious cuisine provided by Fleming's and Osteria Pronto at the JW, play in a poker tournament, eat s'mores around the campfire or turn the lights out early and rest up for another exciting day at camp. This year, other sponsored meals include: Café Patachou, Harry & Izzy's, Outback Steakhouse and Scholars Inn.
Read on to learn about what's in store for you at Mickey's Camp. Sign up soon; reservations will be held on a first come, first served basis.
FEATURED GUEST SPEAKER
Jeff Saturday has traveled a unique road to success in the National Football League. His combination of leadership and teamwork helped build a winning framework for the Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers resulting in two Superbowl appearances while winning a championship ring in 2007. He was selected to two All-Pro Teams and six Pro-Bowls.
For many football fans, Jeff Saturday exemplifies the workman attitude of the offensive lineman. A team within a team, the offensive line must lead while acting as a cohesive unit. As the Colts center, Saturday started 188 of 197 games, including 85 consecutive games from 1999-2004, demonstrating the grit required by his position. He and Peyton Manning hold the NFL record for quarterback/center games started.
Jeff was a Player Representative and member of the Executive Committee of the NFL Players Association and one of the key architects in ending the NFL Lockout. He is also recognized as a man who gives back to his community. He has received countless awards, including the Sagamore of the Wabash presented by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.
