Camp Conquest is a Christian overnight camp for special needs and disabilities, located on 78 rolling acres in Millington, TN.

We encourage campers to try things they never dreamed possible, like flying down a 500’ zipline across the lake, going up a climbing wall, going horseback riding, canoeing, archery, and nightly themed parties.

No experience is necessary - we provide all the training you will need so you and your camper will have an amazing week. To ensure that all campers and volunteers are safe and have the best week of camp, we require a 1:1 ratio camper to counselor. You will be in a cabin with 4 campers, 4 counselors, and cabin leaders. We will have a medical team day and night during each week of camp to pass medications and treat for any illness or injury. In 9 years, we’ve never had an injury or accident.

You will find a FAQ’s section on our website under Get Involved.

We cannot provide transportation to Millington, but we can arrange to pick you up at the airport or bus terminal in Memphis.

We hope to see you at camp this summer.

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!
