11:27 AM ET 07.28 | The 65-acre Shiloh Park in Marion, Ind., has a challenge course with climbing walls and a zip line. And in a few days, it will be the training site for one of the participants in last season's Bowl Championship Series title game. Notre Dame will go on the road and open its 2013 training camp Aug. 5 at Shiloh Park and Convention Center. "We wanted to take our players off campus. They obviously have the entire summer here. We have great facilities, so it's difficult to take them away from the great facilities we have here at Notre Dame, but it's an opportunity for us to start 2013 anew," Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said in a video posted on the school's website on Thursday. Notre Dame will hold four practices at Shiloh Park. The team will transition back to South Bend for practices at LaBar Football Practice Fields on Aug. 9.
