Boot Camp for New Dads — St. Johns County

The Boot Camp for New Dads program in St. Johns County is celebrating their first anniversary with a workshop on July 9.

The workshop is for first-time fathers. To reserve a seat or for more information, call 904.819.4356. It will be held at Gander Mountain Sports on S.R. 16 in St. Augustine.

Utilizing a man-to-man approach, veteran dads and their babies orient rookie dads who are expecting their first baby. The rookies watch the veterans feed, burp, change and care for their babies while hearing their experiences and advice. A strong sense of solidarity quickly develops between these men and peaks when the vets give their babies to the rookies for hands on training.
