In 2012, Tennessean Mark Price saw his lifelong dream come to fruition. He opened Camp Conquest, an amazing overnight camp for children with special needs and disabilities located at “The Grove at Red Oak Lake”, a 75 acre property in Cordova, TN.
The campers, who range in age from 7 to 35 have diagnoses such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. Throughout the week, campers have opportunities to experience activities such as swimming, boating, horseback riding, arts and crafts, singing, camp fires, daily devotions, and everyone's favorate, a three-story water slide!
Price is passionate about the camp. He explains how the experience is a win-win situation for everyone involved, "campers benefit from new experiences, while their parents receive a respite from often-round the clock caregiving, and the volunteers, many from church youth groups, build lasting relationships with the campers, and keep in touch with them throughout the year."
Please spread the word about this amazing program!
