The Medaryville (Indiana) Civilian Public Service Camp No. 28, which is about five miles (8 km) north of Medaryville, was opened in the Jasper-Pulaski Game Preserve when the Bluffton, IN, Camp No. 13 was moved to this location in early April 1942. It was a Mennonite-administered camp, and was the site of a handicraft institute in September 1944 and a conscription institute in March 1945. The men worked in a tree seedling nursery and on a game farm and participated in emergency farm work. The Peace Sentinel was published by the camp from July 1942 to March 1946. The camp was closed in April 1946.
