Big Dog Camp is for offensive and defensive lineman.

Monday the Bulldogs held a skills camp. Thursday and Friday they'll host a youth football camp.

Under current health guidelines, the Bulldogs can practice on campus in pods of 25. All coaches were wearing face masks on the field.

Monday is when around 100 Bulldog student athletes were allowed to return to campus for voluntary workouts. Each day athletes have to fill out a symptom check and exposure questionnaire, plus have their temperature taken before their designated workouts.

At this time, the UMD Athletic Department is not allowing coaches and athletes to comment on returning to campus. 

They provided this statement reading, "The Bulldogs are looking forward to hosting summer camps beginning this week. At this time, the staff, coaches and athletic department are focused on executing our comprehensive plan for the safest, healthiest and most fun camp experience possible given the current circumstances."
