BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell officially opened training camp on Wednesday, holding the team's first practice of the 2013 season.

The session kicked off at 3 p.m. on Ed Gore Field at the under construction Barker-Lane Stadium.

Camp closes on Saturday, Aug. 24 with Fan Appreciation Day, giving Fighting Camel fans a chance to meet Campbell Football players and coaches, as well as tour the facility.
