All You Need to Know About the Pittsburgh Football Team’s Training Camp
Where Is the Training Camp?
For over 50 years, the Pittsburgh team has escaped the city and has come to the magnificent region of the Laurel Highlands to practice. This training camp is a great place for fans to meet the team and see them in action. The camp is at the Saint Vincent College in the town of Latrobe, only 23 minutes away from Oak Lodge. When you stay with us, you’re practically next door!
Tips To Maximize Your Experience
If you decide to make the trip to training camp, you’re probably a dedicated fan. You deserve to know how to maximize this experience! For the best shot at meeting the players and having the best view, make sure you come an hour to thirty minutes before practice begins. Line up along the fence at Carey Center and you might just get a selfie with one of the players! Don’t hesitate to bring your kids, too. There’s plenty of football-oriented activities in the Play 60 Fun Zone.
