The schedule is set for the first of a 10-year run of Indianapolis Colts training camps at Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield.

The Colts are touting this year’s camp from July 25 to Aug. 18 as the “most fan-focused” in history, with special themed days in addition to the standards of Colts City, Colts in Motion, Colts Play 60 Zone and Colts Pro Shop.

The Colts will have joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens on Aug. 17 and 18 and those will also be open to the public.

“There’s no better way to kick off our 35th season in Indiana than holding our training camp in this wonderful new venue,” Colts vice chair and owner Carlie Irsay-Gordon said in a released statement. “Training camp obviously is designed to prepare our team for a long, rigorous season in the NFL. But this year, we are building a bigger and better experience for our fans so they can be a part of this exciting process.”

One new change: Fans must obtain their free ticket to the event each day from the Colts online camp page.

Themed days:

July 28: Kids Day, presented by Riley Children’s Health. This will feature specially priced kids meals, kids-only autograph zone, balloon artists, face painting and rock wall climbing.

July 29: BBQ Bash Night Practice. A full-squad autograph signing will follow a special BBQ-meal at the concession stand and live music.

Aug. 2: Sunrise Yoga. Indy Yoga Movement will lead a class prior to the morning practice.

Aug. 3: Friday Night Lights. Youth and high school teams are invited to camp.

Aug. 5: Community Day. Local nonprofits and players’ causes will be featured.

Aug. 11: Armed Forces Day. VIP suites are available for pre-selected military groups.
