The Chicago Bears are less than a month away from kicking off 2023 training camp. Training camp will once again take place at Halas Hall in Lake Forest. Matt Eberflus and his staff have plenty of work to do, it will be interesting to see if the team can put as much growth on the field as we are expecting based on the moves Ryan Poles made this offseason.
According to the Chicago Bears event page, this year, fans will have a chance to enjoy games, participate in various activities, experience virtual reality, and take part in photo and autograph opportunities. Not to mention, Staley Da Bear, Monster Squad and the Chicago Bears Drumline will all be making appearances. Oh yeah. You also get to watch practice.
Chicago Bears 2023 Training Camp Schedule
Matt Eberflus and Ryan Poles will start evaluating talent on July 26. Training camp will run through August 14 and hold nine public practices. Here is the schedule for those nine public practices plus Family Fest (times are CT):

Please note that these are the gate times.
Practices start at 10:00 am and run from 34 minutes to 51 minutes.
The only problem is not everyone can attend whatever dates they want. Instead, they need to "purchase" a free ticket. These tickets are limited though. Imagine going onto a ticket agency site, hoping to purchase Taylor Swift tickets. Alright, they aren't that hot of an item, but you should still get them quickly if you want the dates you want. With the tickets being free and on a first-come-first-serve basis, they can go pretty quickly.
Tickets go on "sale" on July 6 at 10:00 CT. Fans can select up to four tickets per practice date as available. Parking is also free, but you cannot park at Halas Hall. Instead, you must park at Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills. You can then grab a free shuttle to Halas Hall and enjoy your morning celebrating the Chicago Bears.
