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. Female nurses will stay together in a cabin/ medical station. Male nurses will stay in cabins with campers and counselors. Most of the campers are on medications and a good percentage of volunteers. Each nurse will be assigned 1 - 2 cabins. 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.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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!
