This 1963 home movie shows a number of children climbing around tree houses at Camp Longhorn, a summer youth program created in 1939 in the Texas Hill Country. Later, the Moore family takes a trip to a Galveston beach, where many have a crack at surfing and end up falling into the water several times.
