· When's Camp:
Get your pens and paper ready—for autographs of course—as training camp is set to start up on Monday, July 30. It’s scheduled to run through Friday, August 17, so you should have plenty of time to swing through to see your favorite players in their practice gear. Things start pretty much at 2:30pm each day, and the warm-ups and drills will last for roughly three hours. If you only have time to attend one day shoot for August 5, as that’s the date of the team scrimmage.
· Where's Camp:
Big D has plenty of heat and humidity during the dog days of summer, so instead of just sweating it out in Dallas all summer long the team has a better plan—road trip. The Dallas Cowboys are headed out to Southern California just like in years past, as they run pretty much their whole training camp out in Oxnard. Just make your way to the City of Oxnard Fields next to the Residence Inn to check out the scene.
· What's it Cost:
Thankfully even the Dallas Cowboys offer up free training camp options to any and all fans, but be sure to still remember your wallet. Unfortunately parking is not free, and it looks like it’s going to be $10 per vehicle and $20 if you’re cruising around in an oversized one. Local hotels should have parking passes if you’re staying nearby, so be sure to ask when you check-in or head out the door.

Everyone knows that the Cowboys are a big market team, so it’s no surprise that they have Ford as a sponsor of their whole darn training camp. Extra cash means extra stuff to do, as when it comes to the Cowboys it’s not just practice. There’s a Kids Zone area for the little ones, and the team mascot—his name is Rowdy—is scheduled to be in attendance as well. Other stuff includes plenty of opportunities to gobble up some officially licensed merchandise, as well as to stroll through the team’s Hall of Fame trailers. Just be sure to refrain yourself from declaring, “How bout dem cowboys!?”
