Salvation Army Today – The Yellow Farm

Over 40 youth from The Salvation Army’s summer day camp program in St. Paul, Minnesota visited The Yellow Farm. A peaceful and sprawling equine facility located in New Germany, Minnesota, provided a memorable experience for the children. They learned how to care for and ride horses. Since many of the children rarely leave the city, spending the day riding horses in the great outdoors was an amazing opportunity.
