The C4 Foundation Ranch

Owned and operated by the C4 Foundation, the C4 Ranch is a protected, natural sanctuary that gives Navy SEALs and their families what they need most: a quiet place to strengthen communication, restore family bonds and mend invisible wounds.

FOR SEALs and their families, this IS SACRED GROUND

Refuge for SEAL Families

You’re riding an ATV with your family, bouncing down a dusty road that seems to lead nowhere. A footpath appears, covered by a brush archway that scrapes your shoulders as you shuffle through. Suddenly, as if nature were a stage and the curtains have just parted, the brush gives way to a pristine vista stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Mojave Desert. In that moment, and with those you love, you reconnect with what matters most. Your family, and yourself.

The C4 Ranch is a sanctuary for NAVY SEALs and their families to detach, live in the moment and heal, with nature as the backdrop and neuroscience as the guide.
NAVY Seals and their families to detach
C4 Ranch includes 560 acres of secluded cabins
Just a 90-minute drive east from San Diego, the C4 Ranch consists of 560 acres of breathtaking vistas, secluded cabins, recreational facilities, livestock, and endless opportunities to build fortitude against challenges large and small, overseas and at home through our C4 F.R.O.G Programs.

Our F.R.O.G. Program

Families building Resilience through Optimism and Gratitude: this is the mission of our nature-based, neuroscience-backed F.R.O.G Program. It includes four categories: empowering SEALs, spouses and their families to decompress and reconnect while at the C4 Ranch.

Our FROG Program

Warrior Reset Program

SEALs decompress by focusing on stress relief, rejuvenating both mind and body so they can connect with their families as the best version of themselves.

Spouse Reset Program

While the warriors are away, spouses have their own responsibilities and stress to manage. This program helps them decompress both mind and body, while practicing mindfulness with optimism and gratitude.

Family Retreat Program

Family bonds grow stronger during these long weekends, when families reconnect to create lasting memories in a beautiful, stress-free environment. The activities, and impact, are limitless.

Command Offsite

SEAL Commands come together to get better acquainted and discuss planning. These remote, private and confidential activities are approved by Naval Special Warfare.

A huge thank you for having us spouses here for the “Spouses Retreat”. We found time to laugh, cry & relax…all of which is scarce in our busy lives as SEAL spouses, moms & working women. We will forever cherish the memories and friendships made.

What a wonderful experience this has been! This has been just what we needed as a family to relax and reconnect post-deployment. We loved looking for the horses and cattle each morning. Thank you for all that you do for our families.
