The Tampa Bay Bucs announced the dates of their 2015 training camp Tuesday, featuring 11 days of practice that will be open to the public. For the seventh straight year, the Bucs will hold their training camp at One Buc Place.

New this year will be an expanded kids’ zone with interactive football skill stations, face painting, a dunk tank and other activities. The first open practice will Saturday, Aug. 1.

The Bucs, in their second season under coach Lovie Smith, open their preseason schedule on August 15 in Minnesota. They are home against Cincinnati on the 24th. They host Cleveland (and McCown) on the 29th before closing out the preseason in Miami against the Dolphins on Sept. 3.

Much of the anticipation of the summer, of course, will be the progress of the No. 1 draft pick, quarterback Jameis Winston.
