The 18th 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 seventeen years, Mickey’s Camp has 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 120 men attended the 17th annual men’s camp. The women’s and men’s camps combined to raise more than $150,000 for over 80 local charities. This year we are proud to present an extraordinary array of experts for Mickey’s Camp, scheduled for August 15-17, at Bradford Woods Outdoor Center.
Your time will be filled with exciting 90-minute sessions throughout Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Options include gourmet cooking, robotics, painting, fantasy football, FBI, a day on the lake 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 IU Coach Archie Miller, dine on delicious cuisine, play in a poker or euchre tournament, eat s’mores around the campfire or turn the lights out early and rest up for another exciting day at camp. This year, sponsored meals include: Amore Pizzeria Ristorante, Prime 47, The District Tap, Nameless Catering and Sullivan’s Steakhouse.
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.
Archie Miller was named the 29th head coach of the Indiana Men’s Basketball program on March 25, 2017, by Indiana University Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass. He won his 150th game as a head coach, January 14, 2018 when the Hoosiers beat Northwestern, 66-46. Miller saw the Hoosiers improve dramatically during the season. After seeing IU allow 76 points per game on 45.9% shooting and 41.7% accuracy from three-point range in the month of November, IU has limited teams to 65.4 points on 41.3% shooting from the floor and 33.1% from long distance in the month of February.
Regarded as one of the top young coaches in the country, Miller is a tireless recruiter, noted developer of talent, and a gifted tactician whose teams are known for their stout defense and efficient offense. His 2018 recruiting class at IU is currently ranked 15th in the nation. The 39-year old native of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, comes to IU after serving the previous six seasons as head coach at the University of Dayton, where he won Atlantic 10 Conference regular season championships in 2016 and 2017.
