About

Camp Conquest (www.campconquest.com) is a Christ-centered, week-long, overnight camp for children and adults with special needs and disabilities. The camp is located and held in Memphis, TN, situated on 94 rolling acres with a lake, 12 cabins (heated and air conditioned), large dining room, zip line, high rope swing, lake slide, horseback riding, pool and much more. You can see what it’s like to ride a high rope swing or 3 story lake slide on our website.

We are looking for volunteers with a servant's heart for God to volunteer at Camp Conquest this summer. To ensure that all campers have the best experience while at camp, we require a 1:1 ratio (counselor: camper). Volunteer/Missionary opportunities are as follows:

  • Ages 16-30 to be a counselor to a camper for a week. Counselors live in the cabins with their campers. The campers and counselors experience all of the activities at camp together.
  • Ages 30-60 to be a cabin mom or dad to help counselors during the week of camp.

You don't need experience since we provide 2 days of training before campers arrive and you will be with other counselors and cabin leaders who have experience working at camp. Volunteers pay $95 to cover the cost of lodging and meals for the week.
