"It's so great to look around the crowds and reflect on how blessed the campers (and staff) are to have the tremendous local support for Camp Confidence," executive director Jeff Olson said in a news release.

"The Camp Classics of Confidence Learning Center are such a fun way to raise monies for our organization," event coordinator Sarah Smith said. "We definitely had another incredible year. Friday's weather was beautiful for golfers at both golf tournaments and the Mariucci Fiesta. Saturday's fishing tournament had some rain, but by the end of the day, while the crowd was enjoying the weigh-in under the pavilion at Madden's, the rain stopped and it turned out wonderful."

Bill Deblon and Zach Deblon received the Ralph Klapperich Award, which is given to Confidence Learning Center's Volunteer of the Year for countless hours of dedication given to Camp over the year.

Camp staff presented the Rardin family with the John Beyer Memorial Award for their years of supporting the classic.
