The Chicago Bears will report to training camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois on Wednesday, July 29th. Their first practice is expected to be held on Thursday, July 30th.
On August 12, 2013 the Chicago Bears and Olivet Nazarene University announced an extension to their agreement for Bears' training camp to be held on Olivet's campus for nine more years. 2015 will be the 14th consecutive year the Bears are holding training camp at ONU.
The full schedule of practices will be announced at a later date.
Practices are free and open to the public. Parking is free as well, but with more than 100,000 spectators attending practices, it's best to plan well in advance.
The campus is located 60 miles south of Chicago and training camp is always a family friendly event.
The training camp site on the Olivet Nazarene campus includes a kids' interactive area, a pro shop, and a promotional area with games. In addition, the Bears will host special family-friendly events and theme days throughout their stay in Bourbonnais.
Are any of you planning on making a trip to Bourbonnais this summer?
