Steeler Media BriefingFor 53 years, Saint Vincent has been the official summer home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Thousands of people from all over the United States gather to watch their favorite football players practice on Chuck Noll Field.

As an SVC employee, this will be my third year working Steelers Training Camp and here are my tips and recommendations of things to do while you're on campus.

  • Campus Map
    First and foremost, it might be a good idea to save this map, especially if you're not familiar with our campus. This will help you park, navigate and take full advantage of our facilities. The parking gates open at noon everyday of camp and practice begins at 2:55 p.m. each day. The parking lot is a grass field which is located a few hundred feet from Route 30.Steeler Training Camp Map


  • Air Show
    This year, the city of Latrobe will be “booming” the opening weekend of Steelers Camp. The Westmoreland County Air Show and Steelers Training Camp both fall on July 28-29. If you plan to attend camp and watch the air show, you will need to arrive early due to traffic. The airshow starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Visit https://www.latrobe-regional-airport.com for more information.

  • SVC Bookstore
    Campus doesn't really have any shade around Chuck Noll Field, so when you get too hot, visit the bookstore for air conditioning and some ice cream! Come say hi to Fr. Anthony Grossi, O.S.B., our bookstore manager! All campus facilities are available to assist our guests.

    Our campus is filled with many unique and picturesque locations. While you're waiting for camp to begin or on your way home, please be sure to visit the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve, the Basilica, the Saint Vincent Gristmill Wetlands and the Fred Rogers Center exhibit (second floor of the Fred Rogers Center). The cemetery is also a really unique location.
