Conquest is the act of conquering. It's heart beats with a passion for overcoming obstacles or opposition, all the while winning.
Welcome to Camp Conquest...
Camp Conquest is a Christ-centered, week-long, overnight camp that 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, zipping down a zip line, 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!
Fun with a Purpose
There’s more to camp than just having fun. We want to change lives and we do that by showing God’s love and providing challenging opportunities to overcome so campers leave feeling more confident. With full medical, physical and emotional support from healthcare professionals, trained staff and dedicated volunteers, campers simply live in the moment and have fun.
Free from the confines of their disease, illness or disability, campers discover that they can be a kid, whether they are 6 or 60! How does this happen? We encourage them to try things they never imagined possible. So many parents tell us that they see a positive change in their child after camp with increased independence, self- esteem, and social interactions. It’s life changing!
Our ministry is not only in changing the lives of campers, but also in changing the lives of all who come in contact with those at camp: from volunteers, to parents, staff, visitors, and donors. In order to ensure that campers have the time of their life, hundreds of volunteers serve over 9,000 hours each week by giving to these campers, their experiences and the enrichment of their families.
Camp Conquest is always looking for volunteers who have a heart for those with special needs. Unlike most camps, we have to keep a high ratio of volunteers to campers so the need for those with a servants heart is strong. Could this be you?
