Extraordinary people deserve an extraordinary camp
Founded in 2013, Camp Conquest has served the special needs community for nearly a decade.
The best part? We are expanding toserve more campers, volunteers, and their families.
What we do.
Camp Conquest is one of less than two dozen camps in the entire United States that offers people of any age, any diagnosis, any disability to have a true summer camp experience.
To truly understand what we do, you have to experience it. You have to watch a person that has been confined to a chair their whole life go down a 600' zipline. Watch a 14 year old young man form a friendship with a nonverbal young man with autism and it change both of their lives.
What do we do....... we create a place where God can do and does extraordinary things through people regardless of their disability, age, health, or diagnosis.
Where we are going.
Camp Conquest has been blessed to be in ministry for 10 years as of 2022. We still have so much more work to do. In 2019 God blessed us with our own property in Millington TN. Since then many improvements have been made including our 600' zipline.
However we have so many more people that need what we do. There are over 40,000 individuals with disabilities just in the immediate Memphis area. Our waitlist for summer camp continues to stay as long as the number of campers we get to serve and growing every year.

We can't thank you enough for providing such a safe, energizing, exciting and blessed week for Emily and her pals!! Camp Conquest is truly her number one favorite thing to participate in. Thank You, Thank You!!

Thank you for what you are doing. My family is so lucky to have found you and your camp. Our son is not easy and you and your staff make us all feel so great about the week he spends there. God is doing some amazing things through you, it just shows in everyone over there.
Camille had a wonderful time. She can't stop talking about it. Jerah, her counselor, was great with her. Please pass our heartfelt thanks along to everybody. Thanks so much for the awesome time that she had! God Bless you All.

WHO WE SERVE
Our campers come from a broad background, from many different locations and with many different disabilities. We serve all ages and all disabilities. This means that we have campers with disabilities ranging from physical to mental to verbal.
Each camper at Camp Conquest is paired with a volunteer/missionary. These are individuals that give time out of their lives to come and make a week special for one of our campers. These individuals help make the world accessible for our campers. That can range from transferring their camper into a wheel chair harness to go down the zipline, to talking about their favorite marvel character for hours with their new found friend. The people that come to serve at Camp Conquest are truly some of the best around and without fail they come to serve but find that they leave gaining so much more than they expected.
We serve campers from all over the country, just this year we served campers from as far as 500 miles from Memphis. If you are hesitant about sending your camper or your volunteer please don't hesitate to get on the phone with us. We hold the highest standards of safety to protect all of our participants and we are very pleased to be able to say that we have been 10 years without accident or incident.
If you are concerned about whether or not Camp Conquest can accommodate your camper's disability, please don't hesitate to email Nathan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the campers having fun, we want parents and caregivers to find respite while their child is at camp. Many families choose to go on vacation during this time. Parents can rest knowing the Camp Conquest staff and volunteers are trained prior to campers arriving at camp. In addition, Camp Conquest runs background checks on all volunteers, leadership, and staff.
Our medical team is led by a board-certified nurse practitioner, who is also the co-founder of Camp Conquest. The medical team meticulously reviews each child’s medical record to ensure a continuum of care and that all activities for each camper are medically appropriate. Each cabin has an assigned medical team member to distribute medications and oversee medical needs.
If you have questions about your camper's medical needs, please contact Nathan at Info@campconquest.com. Our health director is a certified nurse practitioner with many years experience and can answer any questions you may have.
