Camp Skylark Ranch Director Eliz “Apple” Adem spent a lot of time at Skylark Ranch as a Girl Scout, attending Service Unit Camporees and completing her Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program, which inspired her to pursue her current career. She shares her experience with the CIT program, and why she believes that leadership training is so important for every Girl Scout’s development.
With over 280 acres of land, Camp Skylark Ranch is home to dozens of horses and quality riding programs that attract campers and staff members from all over the world, beginners and experienced equestrians alike. When you spend every day saddling up, feeding, grooming, and exploring the dirt paths and redwood forests of Santa Cruz County with your horses, it’s hard not to develop a special bond. Three past staff members, Squirrely, Willow, and Phoenix, share some magical memories from their time riding and making friends with the horses at Skylark Ranch.
