Here are some basic details to help you plan your trip(s) to training camp:

The Redskins will have 28 training camp practices open to the public, including morning walk-through sessions that had been closed in the past. All the practices are free.

Camp begins July 25 and runs through Aug. 16 in Richmond.The walk-throughs aren’t the most action-packed, featuring players and coaches going over plays or situations at a slow pace that they discussed in meetings. But they will provide more chances for fans to attend workouts.

The walk-throughs will begin daily at 10 a.m. and the afternoon practice session begins at 3:20 p.m. That’s by far the more interesting session as it features more fast-paced action and some contact (the Redskins do not practice in full pads in every practice).

There is more 11-on-11 work as well as one-on-one drills between receivers and defensive backs and offensive and defensive linemen.The Redskins will conduct open walk-through and practice sessions on each of the first three days of camp. After taking July 28 off, they will return to the twice-daily schedule for the next five days. Fan Appreciation Day will be held at noon on Aug. 3.

They will have two sessions open on Aug. 5 and 6; a 1 p.m. practice on Aug. 10 two more on Aug. 12 and 13 and again on Aug. 15 and 16.  There is no bleacher seating at the facility. Parking at nearby City Stadium costs $7, with a free shuttle, and other lots will cost $5.

Also:

● Parking costs, but admission is free.

● Fans should bring lawn chairs or blankets if they want to sit. Fans also can watch practice from a three-tier outdoor amphitheater beyond the end zones of the practice fields.

● Fans are permitted to bring food and beverages to camp; coolers are allowed. Concession stands will sell food and drinks, as well.

● The following items are prohibited: alcoholic beverages, weapons, glass bottles, video cameras and animals (except for certified guide dogs).

● Portable restrooms will be available around the complex.

● There will be special events and activities geared toward children (through the Redskins Kids Club and Play 60, the NFL’s youth fitness initiative) and women (via WOW, the Redskins’ official women’s fan club).

● Directions, via Interstate 95 south: Take Exit 78 for Boulevard; head to the right off the exit. Turn left onto Moore Street. Continue onto Leigh Street; the facility will be on the right. There is no public parking at the facility, but there are five lots within walking distance.
