Things to know for the 77th Packers Training Camp
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A beloved NFL and community tradition returns Wednesday with Green Bay Packers Training Camp.
This is the 77th Training Camp in Green Bay. It started in 1946 under the legend Curly Lambeau.
The players practice at Ray Nitschke Field near Lambeau Field. Many practices are open to the public.
One of the most cherished events returns in full force this season with the American Family Insurance DreamDrive. Children bring their bikes to Training Camp and the players ride the bikes from Lambeau Field to practice.
Here are things to know about Packers Training Camp:
The Packers say children should bring their bikes to each open practice and offer players a ride to Ray Nitschke Field. There is construction on the east side of the stadium so the path is a little different from years past.
Kids should arrive before practice starts.

- Monday, August 1 - 10:30 a.m.
- Tuesday, August 2 - 10:30 a.m.
