This 1964 home movie captures scenes of David Moore’s daughters at Camp Longhorn, a summer youth program in the Texas Hill Country. Tex and Pat Robertson established the facility in 1939. Later in the year, David Moore, his siblings, and their families meet up on a Galveston beach for a Labor Day picnic. In between rounds of barbecue, some family members attempt surfing while other play along the Galveston Seawall.
