Packers.com/trainingcamp is the online guide to all activities

The Green Bay Packers’ Ray Nitschke Field will greet players and fans alike on Friday morning, July 26, for the opening of the 68th edition of Packers training camp, presented by Bellin Health. Nineteen practices are scheduled through Aug. 27.
 
Training camp visitors are encouraged to use www.packers.com/trainingcamp for an all-encompassing guide to daily practice schedules, activities schedules and other important information.
 
According to the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau and a 2010 study by AECOM, training camp, along with Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health, will attract an estimated 100,000 visitors from across the nation and as many as 20 foreign countries from July 26 through the final open practice, Aug. 27. With an economic impact estimated at $10 million, training camp is a financial boost to many area businesses.
 
Nitschke Field will open 90 minutes prior to the scheduled practice time and will close 30 minutes after the completion of practice. Concessions will be available for purchase. Carry-ins are permitted, but should take up no more space than below a person’s feet. Smoking and alcohol are prohibited. More Nitschke Field policies are available online at packers.com/trainingcamp.

Free to the public, it opens July 26 and runs through Aug. 3. Hours vary each day, based on the practice schedule and are subject to change. All children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian to enter the area. A signed waiver of liability by the minor's parent or legal guardian is required upon entering and may be downloaded from www.packers.com/trainingcamp.
 
The Future Lambeau Leapers Autograph Building, presented by Cleary Building Corp., is designed specifically for fans ages 12 and younger, and is located near the Tundra Tailgate Zone. The area will give kids the chance to meet players, shake their hands and potentially get autographs.
