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 nurse volunteers with a servant's heart for God to volunteer at Camp Conquest this summer. We need 4-5 nurses for each week of camp that all stay together in a cabin/ medical station. Most of the campers are on medication and a good percentage of volunteers. We will divide the medication responsibility evenly among all the nurses. This helps to build a relationship with the kids in the cabins you are passing meds to. The nurses are also available in case a camper or volunteer feels ill or hurts themselves. Therefore, it is necessary to commit to staying at the camp the entire week. There is downtime during the day for relaxing or running errands. It is a rewarding and enjoyable experience that you would not regret! You must have an active nursing license to volunteer.
Volunteers pay $95 to cover the cost of lodging and meals for the week.
