OXNARD, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2013) - If you host it, they will come. That, anyway, has been the case for the Residence Inn Oxnard River Ridge, which is entering its eighth year as the host hotel for the Dallas Cowboys Training Camp. Between July 19 and August 16, 2013, the hotel will serve as the hub for the Camp, which draws crowds of loyal fans and interested observers alike.

Located between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, this Ventura County hotel enjoys year-round mild temperatures and enviable Pacific breezes, which make it the ideal location for a training camp. It is also convenient to a number of other activities for those days when visitors are looking to explore the area.

The four-week Camp officially begins on July 21 with an opening ceremony; kick-off game; kids' activities; live broadcasts with players and coaches; performances by the team mascot, Rowdy; and a selection of team merchandise for sale. Various additional events are scheduled throughout the Camp, and practice is always free and open to the public.
