Interfaith Peace Camp

Interfaith Peace Camp NewsIPC update 2018: the week-long camp will not take place this summer, but instead the committee is actively strategizing and planning for several activities to take place throughout this next year, with the hope of camp happening the summer of 2019.

Interfaith Peace Camp (IPC) is a week-long day camp offered to 8-12 year-olds interested in building friendships and understanding with children from the Abrahamic faith traditions.

As with any nonprofit organization, we need funding and people-power to continue our work! If you are passionate about making sure that we continue to build interfaith bridges among children and their families, please consider joining our team or making a donation!

Our Mission

In the spirit of joy and curiosity, IPC builds friendships, values differences, and celebrates similarities among diverse faith traditions, with a special focus on Abrahamic faiths.

Interfaith Peace Camp began as a pilot program in the summer of 2008, and is a collaborative effort of Harrisonburg City-Rockingham County faith communities (including the Islamic Association of the Shenandoah Valley and the Beth El Congregation), and Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Interfaith Engagement.
