Camino EmblemDerived from the Episcopalian Cursillo, the Camino Movement gathers together Christians from three denominations: Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Methodist & Presbyterian. It was originally called "Heart of America Cursillo".

In order to assure that no one influences the other, this Cursillo had put aside certain elements of the original content of the weekend and retained only what was accepted by all the participants. In 1987, this brought the National Secretariat of Catholic Cursillo of the United States to ask them not to carry the Cursillo's name anymore. Cursillo was then changed for "Camino", cursillista for "viajero", ultreya for "consuno", and palanca for "cuna". However, the Movement still preserves the purpose, the method and the strategy of the Cursillo Movement.
