(HARRISONBURG, Va.) — A camp at Eastern Mennonite University has brought out nearly 300 people from across the country.

The summer conference is put on by the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America and the mission is to help people build a culture of peace rooted in justice.

"We want everybody to find their part in peace making. What it is God calls them to do and our job is to help them do it," says Reverend LeDayne McLeese Polaski, the Program Coordinator.
