I completely understand that some parents find these types of activities to be shocking or extreme, but I prefer to think of them as exceptional. And don’t we want to raise exceptional kids?

To build confidence using SEAL-esque missions and training that translate into real-life skills, both in the field and in life.
SEAL Pups takes the best of Special Forces, firefighting, rescue, and law enforcement to inspire high levels of confidence and functionality in our kids. We want to teach leadership, teamwork, grit and self reliance while developing the practical skills of surviving and thriving.
A “jack of all trades” best describes a SEAL, and similarly, we want our kids to become an expert at becoming an expert, so they can see everything from a position of strength, which makes their vantage point uncommon and valuable.
We maintain a focus on the sea for the very same reason Navy SEALs do. It’s the most dynamic and dangerous place on the planet.
The sea is unique because it's a place you can plop a 10 year old next to a 55 year old and produce the same experience. The ocean meets anyone where they are and has an amazing ability to take them a step further than they thought they could have gone.

We have a new Headquarters located in South Orange County California where we'll be designing and piloting each of our programs with adventurous and ambitious local families.
It's our intent / desire to make our lessons learned available nationally, so that other families can keep up and benefit from the curriculum we produce. Our ability to distribute these resources will be dependent on the capacity of our pilot group.
Sign up below and we'll keep you up to date on our progress. We will send you valuable ideas and lessons learned as we go!
