Nath Thompson Scholarship

Nath Thompson Scholarship

Nath and Mary Thompson

In 1946 Nath got his first job at a summer camp. There was a nation wide gas shortage so he set out on his 50lb single speed bike and rode 235 miles from Thomaston Georgia to the mountains of Western NC. With 55 cents in his pocket he rode for 5 days. It is his determination and love of camp that has been so important to his family. Since 1959 the Thompson family has been associated with Camp Carolina. Many changes have happen since Nath’s first summer at camp but Camp Carolina still has one defining mission to be a valuable factor in a boys complete development.

It is because of this history and Nath’s great leadership that we set up the Nath Thompson Scholarship Fund. Boys are hand-selected by a board and chosen by their “True Gentlemen” character. We hope all boys that come through this program go back home stronger in body, keener in mind, more appreciative of nature, nobler in character and more confident in themselves.

The program has been set up through the North Carolina Community Foundation.
