This 1959 home movie captures children at the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville. Chartered in 1949, the Texas Lions Camp is a nonprofit camping facility for children with physical disabilities, diabetes, and cancer. The footage shows campers, donning yellow bandanas, lined up outside as well as the surrounding Hill Country views. Later, a member of the Barbee family boards a train for Ohio.
