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 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 15-30 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.

Camp Conquest is a Christ-Centered, overnight camp for children and adults with special needs and disabilities. We inspire confidence through challenging activities that changes lives.
Camp Conquest encourages children and adults with special needs, chronic illnesses and disabilities to try things they never imagined possible. As they conquer activities like a 3 story lake slide, a 30’ rope swing, being covered in paint, riding a horse for the first time, canoeing on the lake, or climbing a 3 story rock climbing wall, campers build confidence that will shape how they view the rest of their lives. It becomes more than a week of camp - it becomes a life changing experience!
