Welcome to your outdoor experience
Year-round outdoor educational and recreational experience for people of all ages with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
Cultivating self-confidence and self-esteem through outdoor education and recreation for 53 years
People achieve self-confidence and self-esteem though active “hands-on” activities and participation in a variety of outdoor experiences. Programs like archery, cross-country skiing, and fishing—just to mention a few—allow our Campers to challenge their limits and prove to the most IMPORTANT person of all, themselves, what they are capable of.
THE BRAINERD JAYCEES ICE FISHING EXTRAVAGANZA
The Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza is the largest charitable ice fishing contest on earth. Founded in 1991, the event has been held annually ten miles north of Brainerd, Minnesota.
I love taking my clients to the activities that the Confidence Learning Center have available and the cabins they rent out are nice and clean. So many things for people to do! They work with adults,children and families that have disabilities both physical and mental diminished capacity. I feel the attention,help and involvement the staff give is awesome! They also do fund raising activities that helps run the facility! Truly a beautiful place and people!
