Boot Camp for New Dads

Boot Camp For New Dads (a.k.a. Daddy Boot Camp) enables new fathers to step up to the tremendous challenge of being a dad, and head in the right direction in forming a new family. The workshops have veteran first time fathers, together with their babies, show the new guys the ropes.  This man-to-man format has proven exceptionally effective; anyone who witnesses the pride and confidence of Boot Camp veterans will never underestimate the capabilities of men regarding the care of new babies as well as new moms.
