DE PERE – It’s that time of year again- training camp is less than two weeks away. That means the Packers are heading back to school.
St. Norbert College began preparing dorm rooms where the players will be staying during camp.
Current twin beds are taken out for larger ones that can fit an NFL player.
The Packers started the tradition of staying on the college campus back in 1958.
Members of the team say the entire moving process takes longer than you’d think.
Training camp manager, Kelly Nass says, “The bed move takes approximately 12 employees that are contracted out by economy movers. It takes about two days for the complete bed move, moving out the old dorm beds and moving in the customized Packer beds.”
Training camp officially starts Saturday, July 26th at 8:20 a.m.
