7th Annual Mickey’s Camp for Women


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.

maurerLast year more than 100 women attended the 6th annual women's camp. The women's 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 7th Annual Mickey's Camp for Women, scheduled for August 12-14, at Bradford Woods Outdoor Center.

Your time will be filled with exciting 90-minute sessions throughout Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Options include stand up paddleboard, gourmet cooking, dancing, horseback riding, wine tasting, canoeing, billiards and so much more. You may also relax around the pool, have a massage, enjoy a manicure or read a good book. Evening activities promise to be equally enjoyable as you will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with Angie Hicks, dine on delicious cuisine provided by Kahn's Fine Catering and Scholars Inn, 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 are: Café Patachou, Palomino, and Seasons 52.
