Boot Camp for New Dads

Daddy Boot Camp.jpg

Boot Camp for New Dads©, aka Daddy Boot Camp©, is an opportunity for new dads to learn things they wouldn't otherwise learn about what to expect from both the new baby and the mom.  A Boot Camp Coach leads the class, but “veteran” dads are invited to attend with their babies and they are the real instructors.  The “rookie” dads get to ask questions, practice holding and possibly feeding or changing a baby, while the “veteran” dads share their experiences.  Learn more at

Boot Camps are held quarterly.  Call or text 319-931-0067 or visit us at to find out when the next one is scheduled.
