The 17th 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 sixteen 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 130 men attended the 16th annual men’s camp. The women’s and men’s camps combined to raise more than $175,000 for over 80 local charities. This year we are proud to present an extraordinary array of experts for Mickey’s Camp, scheduled for August 16-18, at Bradford Woods Outdoor Center.
Your time will be filled with exciting 90-minute sessions throughout Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Options include gourmet cooking, fencing, drones, welding, fantasy football, CSI, 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 the 1968 Rose Bowl IU Football Team, 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.
Explore 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.
1967 IU Football Team Members
Many Hoosiers would say there is not much to be proud of when it comes to IU football. They would be wrong. The 1967 IU football team known as the “Cardiac Kids” were co-champions of the Big Ten. “Indiana’s Cinderella dash to the Rose Bowl – accomplished despite an underdog’s tag in practically every game – unanimously was named the top Hoosier sports story of 1967 by Associated Press sports writers and sports broadcasters.
In the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1968 they played the University of Southern California starring probably the most famous football player ever. Who was that? Dialogue with many of the players from that team including Harry Gonso, Eric Stolberg, Dr. Bob Russell, Al Gage, Nate Cunningham and captain Doug Crusan. Bob Hammel, Hall of Fame writer and author of a number of sports books, will facilitate the program.
