Mrs. Robert Schmid of Bern found the following entry relating to the naming of Summit View in a daily journal kept by the late Robert Schmid:
July 28, 1930
"Bobbie and I wnt to the father and sons outing on the Georgetown- Slug Creek Divide. We left about 6 p.m. with Able and Dean, David J. and his two boys, Ira and Twayne, Brother Barlow and his two boys, Ralph and Kimber. I got a tent of Charlie Schmid's and we took a lot of provisions out with us, and a treat for all, candy, peanuts, and watermelon. Nellie cooked us three fin spring chickens, so we faired most wonderfully fine. There were 212 out this evening in camp. We had a fine program. There were 11 out from here, Lowell Kunz was out also. George town had the most out today, 57. They were given the privilege to name the camp. They asked me to help them find a name. They chose a committee of three, Bishop W.W. Clark, Ed. Munk, and myself. The bisop suggested Summit View to which we both agreed. So the camp is known as Summit View. They said that since I had traveled that road perhaps more than anyone else, they wanted me to have some say in it."
