Celebration Youth News
Scatter Joy Acres provides animal assisted therapy that involves many types of animals as a form of treatment to people who are victims of abuse and individuals with special needs. Summit Youth was there serving on Saturday, cleaning up the grounds, and getting the farm ready for Winter. Scatter Joy Acres is open to the public and we highly recommend that you check it out! Our students worked hard but also had a great time with the animals and also enjoyed a hay rack ride and bonfire.
We debriefed at the bonfire, and the kids discussed what it means to spread God's love and serve our community. It was a beautiful day, not only because of the weather, but as a day of giving.
