Camp: Two-a-days begin on Aug. 2

The Packers' 64th training camp begins on Aug. 1, with the first of seven two-a-day practices set for the next day.

The Green Bay Packers will begin training camp on Saturday, Aug. 1, with the first of seven two-a-day practices on Sunday, Aug. 2.

Most practices will be held outside on the new Ray Nitschke Field and be open to the railbirds. On days when the weather forces the team inside, practice will be held inside the Don Hutson Center and will not be open to fans. Practices held the day before a game are closed to fans and reporters.

Interestingly, the Packers have seven days off built into the schedule, including the first three Wednesdays of camp and the day after the Family Night Scrimmage and preseason games.

Nine practices will be held at night.
