Default Training Camp questions

Hey, I'm planning on going to the steeler's training camp this year in Latrobe for the first time. Im pretty clueless and just need some information about it. I know it starts on the 29th, is the public welcome on the 29th as well or will i have to wait a few days? Around how long does the activity each day last? If anybody could help me out and really just give me the whole scoup on the steelers training camp experience that would be really great. Thanks in advance

I was thinking of going to see them practice this Sunday but it sounds like it will be really crazy at least on the first day. Maybe later on the crowd will thin out some but I doubt it.
