The Bears released their training camp schedule today, over at their official site. Some notes to keep in mind:
For morning practices, gates open at 9:00am, and players and coaches will already be on field. Practice ends around 11:30 (depends on weather). For afternoon practices, gates will open at 2:30. There's a huge gift shop, and plenty of family activities as well.
The earlier the better, and it's a great time for kids to get autographs, etc. Be polite and respectful of others, and you should have a great time with your fellow Bears fans. Also...bring a chair!
