It’s a big week for Bears fans as the excitement, doctor anticipation and non-stop media coverage of the upcoming season officially begins this Friday, July 25th when the Bears begin practicing in Bourbonnais at Training Camp.
From July 25th – August 12th the team will host the 2014 RC Cola Bears Training Camp presented by Chase. The open-to-the-public free practices are hosted at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois, located 60 minutes outside of Chicago. Fans of all ages come out to the small, suburban university to get a look at their favorite players and take in the activities and themed events hosted during the three week window leading up to the 2014 NFL preseason.
In addition to other themed days including Armed Forces Day and Vamos Bears Dia, the team hosts a Ladies Day for women of all ages to attend. On Wednesday, July 30th women are specifically invited out to enjoy a day at Training Camp designed with the female Bears fan’s ‘girly’ needs in mind. An on-site salon and spa services are available to attendees as well as a summer hair styling session, giveaways and more.
SDI attended last year for the opportunity to talk to other female fans and get their input on the upcoming season. Check out our video above to see who we got on camera. This event is a fun and affordable way to get a first look at the team in a relaxed setting, stroll the grounds and enjoy the food vendors, inflatable play area for the kids, and meet other passionate fans.
Players are often available for autographs during Training Camp so bring the memorabilia and have the kids ready to push through the crowds of other fans to get the token autograph from members of the team.
If getting to Soldier Field for a regular season game is not always a viable option, Ladies Day at Bears Training Camp is a fun day to grab your friends, bring the kids and get your Bears fix for free while enjoying the outdoor activities and soaking in all of the excitement around the upcoming season.
