Here at Camp Carolina reading "The True Gentleman" is an incredibly important and meaningful tradition. Last session our amazing Counselor Assistants decided that they would dress in their nicest shirts and recite "The True Gentleman" to a lucky few administration staff (Director-JJ, Program Director-Jimbo, Tripping Director-Adam) plus owners Mary Eccles and Alfred Thompson. The CA (Counselor Assistant) program is a fantastic opportunity for our older campers who would like to develop leadership and team work skills as well as build up professional working relationships with the staff at Camp Carolina.

The True Gentleman
…is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies, who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity. Who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another, who does not flatter wealth, cringes before power or boast of his own possessions or achievements. Who speaks with frankness, but always with sincerity and sympathy, whose deed follows his work, who thinks of the rights and feelings of others rather than his own, who appears well in any company. A man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
