Summer camps have played a huge role in the history and economy of our community. The first summer camp here, in my opinion, was the Westminster Presbyterian Encampment, which was along Quinlan Creek in what is now part of the Schreiner University campus.

Westminster provided a place for rest, recreation and spiritual training. It operated from 1906 to 1950, and today only two of its original buildings remain.
