Tradition gets new additions

Planning a trip to training camp?<P> Even veteran attendees should expect a new experience, thanks to the completion of the Lambeau Field reconstruction project. All aspects of the Packers facilities will be involved in training camp features for the first time in several years. The events kick off four weeks from now.<P>

This year's training camp, which runs from July 28-Aug. 31, will include new features such as an expanded Packer Experience taking place inside Lambeau Field atrium, rather than at the adjacent Brown County Veterans Arena as in previous years. The event will have additional interactive features. This year, the event is free, open daily 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Main stage entertainment will take place in the Lambeau Field Atrium between practices and will include local music and dance troupes, information sessions, health and fitness programs and a talent search for the next teen co-host of "G-TV."

Another special feature planned for the main stage this year is an opportunity to listen to and learn from Packer historian Lee Remmel. The long-time Packer expert will make appearances on the main stage throughout training camp.

The old standards such as autograph sessions, players riding kids' bikes to and from the practice field, and public practice sessions are all still a part of training camp which draws thousands of fans to the Oneida Street fence each summer.

A daily training camp guide will be published to keep visitors informed. According to the team release, all children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian to enter the Packers Experience area. This area will not be open on Aug. 7-8, 16-17, and 21-22 to accommodate Family Night and both preseason home games.
