Am I outdating myself by mentioning that I remember spending each summer piling into the car with my brothers for the journey down to Bryant University to Patriots Training Camp. Ah, the memories.
Now, you can head to Gillette Stadium instead to watch your favorite players proclaim their spot on the team. The first few open practices have already been announced, but don’t worry more dates will be available in the future if you can’t make the first few dates.
- July 26: 1:30pm – 4:00pm
- July 27: 1:30pm – 4:00pm
- July 28: 1:30pm – 4:00pm
- July 29: 1:30pm – 4:00pm
One of my favorite parts of Patriots Training Camp is that it’s free, and parking is too. If you have kiddos to bring, their is also the “Patriots Experience” which is an interactive playground. My favorite part of training camp as a kid was competing with my brothers for the most autographs, which I always lost, but it was still fun! Make sure to bring a hat, shirt, napkin or whatnot just in case you have better luck than me!
You can find more information about the Patriots Training Camp on the Patriots Website Here.
