While the duration of the 2003 camp is longer than last year's inaugural camp, the number of practice sessions will mirror last year's amount.
Fans can expect the same camp features that garnered rave reviews last year, including the Bears store, concessions and children's interactive game area.
But the University has made a number of improvements to accommodate Bears players and fans this year:
Bleacher seating has doubled.
Double doors have been added to the back entrance of the Bears store to help with crowd flow.
Electrical and water lines have been extended to allow for multiple concession and first-aid locations.
The entrance to Ward Field, the site for optional evening practices, is undergoing a face-lift. Changes will include new restrooms and a new concession area.
The official training camp Web site, www.bearstrainingcamp.info, has a new look and includes the most updated information about training camp.
