Raffle Benefits

Confidence Learning Center – also known as Camp Confidence – is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the belief that persons with developmental disabilities have the right to experience life to the fullest.

This idea led Dick Endres, founder of Camp Confidence, and a group of Brainerd businessmen to form a non-profit corporation in 1967 called the Minnesota Therapeutic Camp, Inc. Today it is know officially as Confidence Learning Center although its original name of Camp Confidence is used also. This was indeed a pioneering project — as it was the first program of its kind in the northern 24 states of the United States. Thirty years ago, Dick Endres had a vision — to establish a permanent place where people with developmental disabilities could develop the skills necessary to become full, contributing members of society.

The corporation purchased one hundred and forty (140) acres of land on Sylvan Lake with brushing and clearing beginning in April 1969. Tent camping equipment was purchased to provide for eight campsites. Each campsite consisted of a tent erected on a pad, a fireplace, and picnic tables.The local unit of the U.S. Army Reserves assisted in the construction of a road access into the property as well as development of the main beach area and ski hill. They have continued to help with the construction of picnic shelters, the nature playground, and the timber trestle bridge. Three years later in 1969 Camp Confidence was born on the shores of Sylvan Lake near Brainerd. A unique year round facility and program dedicated to the physical and social adjustment of people with developmental disabilities.

The Minnesota Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Eagles is holding this raffle for the benefit of the Confidence Learning Center. In fact the gentleman on the Prize Harley here in the photo is none other than John Batchelder, President of the Minnesota chapter.
