It’s 3:18 am. You wake up with more than just a few butterflies in your stomach...this feels more like the entire flock of migrating Monarchs.
"Did I respond to that client?" "Why didn't that marketing message hit?" "I have to hire another person." "I'm out of coffee." You know you could solve each of these problems...if only you had the time...the money...the team. If only.
It happens to all of us. Fears, Exhaustions, Uncertainties and Doubts start to creep in, or come in with a BANG! and cause you to wonder if all the effort is worth it. What was that crazy idea that once got you motivated? Is my best effort even good enough anymore?
But what if you woke up at that same time each night...because you were inspired not because of the FEUD? What if you were awake because you were obsessed with something great? What if...
You're already up to great things and know where you want to go, but you know you can't do it all yourself. Let Camp CAS (Camp Cause and Success) help you out!
Join us for the only leadership summit that takes place as a Summer Camp - 3 ½ days to take your business, your projects and your ideas to the next level.
Challenge yourself with new ideas...Experience your leadership...Disconnect from the daily grind...Explore. Create. Be.
Why Camp CAS Leadership Summit is for you!
Camp CAS Leadership Summit is for today's business leader who knows there is a new way to do business (or maybe an ancient way that we apply to today's fast paced environment).
It's for today's entrepreneur and start-up founder who feels like she's swimming up stream - all day, every day - but believes in herself enough to keep going (and would like a little support now and then).
It's for today's soloist/solopreneur who often likes to work alone, but doesn't want to BE alone.
It's for today's generation of "do it my way-ers" who crave being around people smarter so they can learn; yearn to share their own knowledge to help others succeed; who want to bring their current skills and passions to camp, but are willing to challenge themselves to learn to master a new realm of business, too.
Camp CAS is for all Movers...Shakers...Business Rule Breakers (or wannabe rule breakers) who are willing to see life in a new perspective because they know that is where true innovation is born. Camp CAS is for YOU!
Founder, Camp Director
Heather Furby, Founder and Camp Director, could not take another "business as usual" leadership conference in an air-conditioned hotel. She knows you were not born to sit behind a computer taking notes about inspiration and leadership - only to have no idea how to implement once you get back to "real life".
She developed Camp CAS (Camp Cause and Success) Leadership Summit as a hands-on, activity driven and safe-to-experiment environment so that you can experience your unique style of leadership - without the pressure of day-to-day management of your team, business or life.
She now brings 20 years of success in business, including starting two companies, BodyLogic Health and Cause And Success, a division of Creative Age Leadership, Inc, which she started with her husband, Alan Repech. Heather knows first hand the struggle, depression and feelings of failure that ensue when we focus too much on the HOW-TO's of business and forget about the WHO-DOES.
So...in short...she decided to merge experiential teaching of business strategies and tactics with the entrepreneurial vision and spirit of leadership and thus...Camp CAS was born.
Why other leaders said YES to Cause And Success...
When I got the email about Camp Cause & Success, I immediately emailed and said, "I'm IN!" The idea of fun as a crucial ingredient to a successful business and life is one that has been on my learning curve for awhile now...

We learned about new and different ways to be a leader, to express our leadership, and actually experience it as well. Not just learn about it, but also actually apply it. It’s something I can take with me right into my teams and others I work with immediately.

This is a fabulous experience. It has expanded and shifted me in very deep ways. I can’t say enough how important it is to everyone to have this experience to really work on themselves and come to a stronger, better understanding of who they are and their place in the world.
Build on the skills you already have...see new results
Camp CAS (Camp Cause and Success) is a 3 1/2 day experiential event - a leadership summit but set in...SUMMER CAMP! It is designed to help leaders like you overcome the FEUDs (Fears, Exhaustion, Uncertainties and Doubts) you face as you build on your dreams.
A 3.5 day blend of perfection...
Camp CAS is mix of new adventures and ideas; a dollop of personal growth to support your business growth; a splash of tools and strategies to move your idea into action; and an extra-large helping of life-time friendships.
3.5 days of choice...
Camp CAS is the freedom to choose from creative activities, business skill seminars, personal growth introspection, or watching the grass grow – all designed to help you feel like you’re back in the driver’s seat of life.
3.5 days of vital connections...
Make connections to people on a mission, to people who are shaking up the way we think, to people dedicated to BEING the change. Maybe some of them are even on your next team?
3.5 days of LeadershipHackathon
Camp CAS is your opportunity to re-connect, re-invent, re-structure, re-member your core pieces and parts and put them back together in the way you always dreamed.
It's NOT a bootcamp.
It's NOT a networking event.
It's NOT speakers trying to sell their stuff.
It's NOT merely random play (OK...there's some of that).
Camp CAS is a highly creative and experiential leadership UNconference. You are able to take what you already know and use those skills to help you step outside your comfort zone of leadership so that you can practice building business in a new way. You will be empowered and inspired to challenge yourself in new creative activities, artistic expression and break-through business building practices.
Camp CAS is a Summer Camp for adults. A place to get outside of your everyday routine and rediscover your true nature of curiosity and sense of wonder, to guide yourself toward greater success and a life that does not require "balance" because you pursue your dreams and passions in a way that is authentic to who you are meant to be.
Camp CAS is a leadership conference for adults who crave both professional AND personal growth and just don't like the traditional hotel conferences. We offer Campers a chance to unique 3 1/2 day experience that is designed to inspire, increase innovation, encourage collaboration and community, and grow your success.

Booo! No Rules! No Rules! OK...we have FIVE “strongly encouraged norms that, if not followed, may result in you going home early.” How’s THAT for modern day parenting?
#Hashtag Free means there is no social media. In fact, you can check your phone, tablets and other devices in the Decompression Zone. There is no cell coverage or wifi at camp anyway so it’s a perfect excuse to unplug. #Hashtag Free allows you to feel safe because no picture of you with a painted face, clown nose or leading the kazoo symphony parade will be posted. No reputation management needed at Camp CAS.
Title Free Environment means you get to drop your title at the door. We level the playing field at Camp CAS. You are free to be who you are, not what your title dictates you are supposed to be. In business, we rely a lot on titles and labels and we get accustomed to having them provide automatic positioning and status. But they also limit us. What is a CEO supposed to act like? What happens if I’m a Founder but my business is new…will people think I’m a failure? What if I’m an entry level admin but I know I am really worth more? Will people ever see me for ME?
Title Free Environment allows you to let all success and failure drop away. And after all…is a Marketing Manager inherently better than a CTO at “Mermaid Tag?” We don’t think so.
Drug and Alcohol Free*
Yes. We get we are all adults and a cocktail or cold beer can be a nice addition to your day. But we are Drug and Alcohol Free at Camp CAS. It allows you to really see who you are without the aid of any substance. It means you can dive into your true joys, passions, fears and obstacles without the filter of drugs or alcohol.
*We understand that some people use prescription medications. We’re talking drugs of the non-legal kind. We also know that some people can’t quit smoking overnight. While we encourage you to cut back, we will offer limited designated smoking areas away from the rest of camp.
Age Free is just as it sounds. No talking about how old and wise you are, nor how young and full of energy, or how old and full of energy, nor young and wise…you get it. We often judge people by age and in truth, it just doesn’t matter. We cringe when we hear “Oh, you’re so young…you don’t have to worry about that…” or “You have so many years of experience, you must be an expert.” So, at Camp CAS…we drop age. We just ask that you’re over 18 (there’s a legal part to that…)
FOMO is Fear Of Missing Out. It drives so many decisions. Are we going toward what we want or just scared of missing out on the party. It usually holds us back so…we’re FOMO Free. This means that at Camp CAS you are always in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing with the right people. How right is that?

Q.When Should I arrive at Camp?
A.Camp Registration opens at 3pm on Thursday September 10, 2015. Dinner will be served at 6:30pm. We really want you to arrive as close to 3pm as you can because then you have time to settle in, create a pet rock, not talk about what you DO in the world and start BEING the person you BE.
The gates close at 9pm so you must be in camp before 9pm on Sept 10 – NO EXCEPTIONS. If you arrive after 9pm and the gates are closed, you will need to find a place to stay in town – and we’ll tell you now, Nevada City and Grass Valley are really cute towns but neither have many last minute places to stay.
Q.What if I can't arrive until late? or on Friday?
A.Please see above. Camp gates will close at 9pm on Thursday so you must arrive before that.
We really encourage you to do what it takes to arrive Thursday. However, life happens. We will open the gates at 7:30am on Friday and have a chance to register between 7:30am and 9am. Then Camp is Closed! Really. For reals.
Q.When does Camp end?
A.We’ll wrap up on Sunday just before lunch time – which at Camp is about 12:30-ish. There WILL be lunch served if you want to stay, but the formal program is over. We ask that people are prepared to leave the camp by 2pm.
Q.Where will I sleep? (Lodging)
A.We’ll be rockin’ the cabin sleepovers! There are heated cabins, outdoor cabins and a few have one bathroom inside for the late night needs. Each village has 3-4 cabins and each cabin will have 7-10 people. Each cabin as one single bathroom and a shared bath house just outside – with a boys side and a girls side.
Q.Can I sleep with my partner/spouse?
A.Well…yes or no. Girls will be in one village and boys in another. So, if your partner is the same sex as you, you may be in the same village, but you’ll likely be in separate cabins. Different sex couples will not be in the same cabin or village.
However, we really encourage you to NOT be with your partner because we can easily get into patterns of judging ourselves or our partner and that sort of defeats the purpose of camp.
Q.What do I need to bring?
A.We’ll send a complete packing list once you register, but you will need to bring bedding, towels, comfy clothing, swim clothes and camp-stuff – flashlights, costumes that move your spirit, stuff to give to your new friends, books you’ve been meaning to read…
Q.What is the food like?
A.It’s called “upscale camp food”. There is a full kitchen staff and chef on site and they are very excited to create menus for adults after a long summer of kid campers. There will be options for all eating needs and we’ll be collecting that information from you after registration. We plan the food to be equal to or better than what you’d eat on a quick night out…and…it’s Camp! There is always dessert. That said…be flexible?
Q.Can I request to be with my friends...always?
A.Yes…but…do you really want to? There is absolutely a place to request a bunk or cabin mate. We still encourage you to let the universe take charge and put you in the right cabin with the right people…but we totally get the sleepovers are even more fun with your buddies so request away!
Q.Do you need volunteers?
A.Yes, please! If you are so moved to volunteer at camp, we can reduce your tuition accordingly. (That means, the more work you want to do, the less you pay). Specifically, we need a few photographers, some activity set up/clean up people, a couple cabin counselors, some pre-camp communicators, sound technicians, musicians, artists to make signs…or what do you have to offer? Let’s be transparent…this is our first year at Camp CAS so we’re willing to play and looking for creators to play with. Contact us for more information on volunteering.
Q.What are the camp rules?
A.Booo! No Rules! No Rules! OK…we have a FIVE “strongly encourages norms that, if not followed, may result in you going home early.” How’s THAT for modern day parenting?
