With mandatory mini-camp complete for everyone except 16 veteran players, the Packers now turn their attention to training camp. Last week Friday, the Green Bay Packers unveiled their 2018 Training Camp schedule, just as kids across Wisconsin are getting out of school and families are scheduling their annual summer vacations to see the Green & Gold.

We are six weeks away from the Packers first training camp practice of the 2018 season, which will take place on Thursday, July 26th. The training camp schedule includes 14 practices that are open to the public and held at Ray Nitschke Field. That is the same number of public practices as the team had in 2017.
This does not include the team’s Family Night Scrimmage at Lambeau Field held on Saturday, August 4th.

However, unlike last year, there will be not early morning or evening practices, as all of the open practices will be in the middle of the day, starting at 11:15 AM and 12:15 PM.
The Packers will actually kick things off a few days earlier with a kids run on July 20, followed by the Packers 5K Run/Walk on July 21 at Lambeau Field. On the evening of July 21, the team will hold their annual Packers Hall of Fame induction ceremony in the Lambeau Field Atrium. This years inductees are Ryan Longwell and Mark Tauscher.
For the first time ever, the team will hold their annual shareholders meeting at night on July 25th at 7 PM inside Lambeau Field.
