Inquire about the trip

Camp Conquest serves campers (ages 8 -65) with any and all special needs and disabilities. Camp would not be possible without the love and support of our missionaries and staff. We provide all the training you will need before campers arrive to help make it the best week ever. We strive to maintain a 1:1 ratio for campers, so every cabin will include 4 campers, 4 counselors, and 2 trained cabin leaders. With full medical, physical, and emotional support from healthcare professionals, trained staff, and dedicated missionaries, campers live in the moment and enjoy a place designed just for them. You will get to encourage your camper to try things they never dreamed possible, like a zipline, horseback riding, canoeing, climbing a 25' wall, archery, and much more. Volunteers and staff live and model their faith throughout the camp experience, with their cabin buddies and one-on-one interaction.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

1 (67).jpg

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 and volunteers leave feeling more confident.  The healing power of laughter, friendship, and shared experiences offer campers and volunteers the chance to make new friends, develop the courage to try new things, and build newfound confidence that they can carry back to church, school, social settings, and friendships in their daily lives.

Through adaptive activities, campers and volunteers get to experience flying down a 600' zipline across the lake, horseback riding, climbing a 30' climbing wall, canoeing, archery, being covered in paint, and dressing up for the nightly themed parties.

The day starts off with Rise N Shine at 7:15, silly morning songs at 8, breakfast 8:30, cabin cleanup and devo 9:15, morning activities from 10:00 – 12:00, lunch 12:15, camper nap time 1:15, volunteer and staff free time 1:30 – 2:45, sno cones 2:45, afternoon water activities 3 – 5, clean up and dress up for party 5:15, dinner at 6:15, themed party 7:15, worship and devo wrap-up at 8:15, camper lights out 9:30, volunteer and staff family time 10, lights out 11.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

For many of our campers, they don’t get to attend church. For some, coming to Camp Conquest is the first time they’ve heard the gospel. We provide an avenue for both our campers and any missionaries that have not heard the gospel to hear it in an applicable way and surrounded by people that love them and show that through their actions.

Training debriefing
Volunteers arrive on Sunday afternoon for training with campers arriving on Monday at 4:30 pm. Each camp session ends on Saturday at 11 am. You will be fully trained before campers arrive, including proper eating, dressing, and wheelchair transfer for campers in wheelchairs. Our medical team will review the campers and their diagnosis for each week and will provide training on each diagnosis and how to care for your camper. You will also have the support of the cabin staff, leadership, and medical team day and night during the week at camp. After breakfast on Monday morning, cabin leaders take their groups back to their cabin to pray and review the 4 camper applications within their group. After reviewing the camper applications, the volunteers get to pick their camper for the week. We finish training around 12 noon on Monday. After lunch, everyone gets the next 2 hours off before camper arrival.
