Daddy Boot Camp FAQ

  • An online man-to-man workshop to give men becoming fathers the tools and confidence to become great dads. 
  • Includes Welcome to Fatherhood, the ultimate resource for dads-to-be.
  • Anchors a community of dads who “want the new guys to have what we have”.
  • Based upon Boot Camp for New Dads, started on Father’s Day 1990. 

  • Boot Camp for New Dads is our in-person workshop with 500,000 “graduates” in 260 communities in 45 states and on U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force bases (closed until COVID is over).
  • Dads-to-be of all cultures, colors, interests, ages, and economic levels attend. 
  • Named the best practice for educating new dads for decades and the only one proven sustainable (England choose Boot Camp as their national program).

  • “Rookie” dads-to-be join in the last months before their first baby arrives.
  • “Veteran” dads (previous rookies) bring their babies and care for them for 3 hours while telling the rookies what worked and what they would do differently.
  • Trained dad coaches (former veterans) lead the veterans in passing on what they all learned about birth, crying, moms, relationships, etc. 
  • Rookies present questions and concerns, and coaches and veterans respond, and the rookies leave thinking “I can do this”.

  • Greg Bishop, brother to 12 and a father of four, decided new dads would do better and enjoy their babies more if an experienced dad showed them how.
  • In Greg’s day job working with trauma centers, he would often see children in the ICU who wouldn’t have been there if their father had known better.
  • All children need a father who is there for them, no matter what, and if we all do our job, the world we turn over to all our children will be a lot better.
