Day in bootcamp
« on: February 18, 2016, 08:01:28 PM »
My son just started bootcamp yesterday.  I was just wondering if anyone on here has been there and can tell me what kind of schedule they have and what they do when they first start.  I heard the first couple weeks are very intense.

Glad he is finally there, he will be in the ghost phase for a couple weeks.  You can stay on this BC topic board and in the search box above type in ghost and all the topics with information about this phase will come up.
