Albany -- Some Dougherty County boys are taken out of their element for a day of fun. The Pride of Albany Masonic Lodge held their first ever "Day with a Mason" one day camp.

Seventeen members from the lodge participated with the day of mentoring. The mentors wanted to provide the camp of 34 boys from the community a different experience with a male role model.

The group went bowling, skating and even learned to shoot a few tees on a golf course.

"The experience taught them how to respect each other, respect the game of golf and how to really get used to swinging a club because most of them never swung a club," said First Tee volunteer, Victor Singleton.

"The mentoring and being around the male role model all day, was something positive," said camp coordinator, Antonio Qualls.

The boys were between the ages of six to twelve years old. Most of the boys in the camp don't have male role models at home.
