Get set for free tastes of summer Camp Kitchens

It’s summer now. Hot dawg days, long but subtly diminishing. Time for vacations, for roaming far afield, maybe setting up camp.

Well, our Browns have settled on theirs, dispelling murmurs of Central Ohio interest, and reportedly re-committing to Berea through 2039. The team’s HQ and training facility will stay in the city-owned site.

And with this week’s release of the Browns’ training camp schedule, you and yours can steer some part of your summer straight up the striped Beech Street near Baldwin Wallace.

Watch the league’s most fascinating roster rally into a rival to reckon with! Join Kitchen’s crew getting ready to cook right through the fall schedule and serve up scores and wins deep into winter!

Five years back I enjoyed a sunny August afternoon watching practice with my dad and son, and I’d do it again. I hear the experience is even better now, though there are some enduring downsides. Chief among them is the possibility of rain moving one of these 15 practice sessions indoors and washing away fans’ plans for that day.

But don’t be deterred. You can’t win ’em all.

With enthusiasm and expectations so high, spot prices to get into 2019 games at FirstEnergy are surging to levels scarcely seen. So free entry to training camp and the $5 scrimmage at the stadium might be just the ticket for you to forge some in-person memories of what’s shaping into a special season.
