New Dad Boot Camps

NYC Dads Group knows that when a dad is engaged during pregnancy, birth and the first weeks of his child's lives, he sets the foundation for a life as an active and involved parenting partner.

With this in mind, we proudly run NYC Dads Group New Dad Boot Camps, an opportunity for expectant and new dads to connect with veteran dads (and their babies) for a frank discussion on the experience of becoming a father.

We talk about the opportunities and rewards of personally caring for our children as dads demonstrate holding, burping, changing, swaddling, and comforting crying babies.

We’ll also discuss new parent-related issues, including:

Developing a bond a with your new baby
Being supportive of your baby’s mom
Navigating work as a new parent
Developing a parenting partnership
Creating a baby-safe environment
Managing relatives


These 3-hour workshops are facilitated by a trained, nationally certified member of the NYC Dads Group. Boot Camps will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (except where noted) at the following locations:
