Retreat in Princess Anne forms in order to build character among young men

In Somerset County, a three day retreat in Princess Anne is helping young men build character.

It's called "Young Gentlemen of Distinction" at the Garland Hayward Youth Center.

There are 17 kids enrolled in the retreat ranging in grade levels from 3rd-9th grade. 

The retreat was created to offer more mentorship for these young men right before school started.

Organizers say this would be a great opportunity to make an impact on them.

The retreat will have motivational speakers focusing on goal setting and peer pressure.

And they even have some fun activities, such as team building, along with individual thinking.

Despite being the first year in the making, they are carrying this mentorship throughout the year with their after school program.
