Empowering Connections & Preserving Legacy


The SEAL community is built on a proud tradition that goes back to the UDTs of WWII. This history and heritage is one of extraordinary achievements and exceptional courage. The deeds of these warriors deserve to be remembered and recognized. And for the community itself, we must do all we can to keep them connected through unique support.

Programs under our Community Pillar empower the continuation of this brotherhood and their families through things like summer camps, veteran reconnect events, and legacy preservation. We also provide financial support for national memorials and monuments and other tradition enriching activities. The Navy SEAL Foundation is committed to preserving the rich history and community of these extraordinary warriors, families, and veterans.

*These programs are supported by the Ken Griffin
Navy SEAL Foundation Education and Children's Initiative.

Community is often associated with a sense of belonging and a warm, welcoming place. Now when I first read the word community, my initial thought was my time at the NSF camps, Camp Spec Ops and Camp Legacy, that shaped me into the person I am today. I spent some of the best years of my life growing and changing with other kids and counselors that I could relate to.

It’s stressful growing up in this community. You never know if it’s going to be your turn to lose a parent, or if it was going to be your closest friend who lost a parent. Sometimes you feel like you’re alone in that. But at camp, I got to spend time with kids my own age who had grown up the same way I had grown up. It helped me figure out who I was and what I wanted to be. You can ask any kid who’s been to an NSF camp if it’s helped them in some way, and I guarantee, 99% of the time, the answer will be yes.
