EP 122 – Krushing It In Youth Leadership with Kathy Farley 

 March 30, 2023

By  The Blissful Parent

We often see our kids with these devices in front of their faces all the time. We are worried that they might lose interest in a lot of other important things because of this. Parents, it is now more vital than ever to get our kids back into the natural world to expand their minds, and let them learn how to connect and communicate with others. This is one of the many reasons why camps are so important to be there for our kids. 

With powerful principles, Kathy Farley has taught many young adult leaders about the true essence of leadership. Kathy’s 650 trained leaders have served more than 350,000 young adults. In this episode, she talks about her book Krushing It!, and how camps help grow and nurture the next generation of leaders. Don’t miss her inspiring story on how she ended up being the owner of the huge summer camp in Southern California as a single mom. 

“It (camps) promotes self esteem, they learn a sense of community, they learn a sense of commitment and connection which is so lacking these days. Their connectivity with one another, as well as their confidence just booms. The things that they were afraid of when they stepped off the bus on Monday are no longer a fear by Friday.” – Kathy Farley

About our Guest:

Kathy Graves Farley was born into nature in Honolulu, HI and this exposure to the power of the water set the tone for the life that has followed. From an early age Kathy also had a profound interest in proving she could do anything she set her mind to do, and quickly learned that doing things right was the only way to do them. 

In her near 30-year tenure as owner of the Ranch, Kathy trained, motivated, managed and supported more than 650 young adult leaders that would impact the lives of a staggering 350,000+ grade school kids; it is simply an astounding number of lives shaped by her philosophies of team, caring, success and leadership involvement. 

Now, having sold the Arrowhead Ranch Science School, Kathy is transferring her experience, tools and lessons on accepting the roles of leadership, enjoying the journey and positively impacting both a team and its goals. It is her call to arms for young adults everywhere.

Kathy has published her lessons learned in a motivational book for young adults that takes the “scary” out of leadership and empowers young people for great accomplishments and self-actualization, setting them a confident path, for life. Her knowledge learned through tens of thousands of hours developing young leaders is captured in the pages of Kathy’s book “Krushing It!” 7 Keys to Successful First Time Leadership. She shares her high energy, positive and humorous speaking engagements on college and high school campuses. She also continues to do personal coaching for young leaders 18-25 years old, as well as holding workshops for first-time leaders 14 to 25 years in age.  

Kathy encourages you to reach out to her for a warm conversation about the importance of putting the right things in place for first-time leaders and her process for assuring their success that has been proven time and again.
