July 26, 1963: Dickinson College New Site of Redskins Training Camp

July 26, 1963: Dickinson College New Site of Redskins Training Camp

On July 26, 1963, the Redskins opened training camp at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, after training at Occidental College in Los Angeles for 17 seasons. Skins coach Bill McPeak requested the change. He found the fields at Dickinson to be better than those at Occidental, and liked the school’s proximity to D.C. The town of Carlisle embraced the Redskins during their 32-year stay at Dickinson.  While they were winning Super Bowls during the Joe Gibbs-I era, one sign read: “Dickinson College: Summer Home of the World Champion Washington Redskins.” After holding training camp for five seasons in the 1990s at Frostburg State University in Maryland, the Redskins returned to Dickinson in 2001 and 2002.
