This is the 74th Green Bay Packers training camp. Five special bikes will be provided to kids and players by the American Family Insurance DreamDrive for the traditional ride from the stadium to the practice field. And larger mattresses will be moved into the dormitories at St. Norbert College in De Pere where the players will stay during camp, continuing a relationship between the Packers and the local college that began in 1958.
