Oxnard, Calif.— The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders hosted a camp Sunday for local youth of Oxnard, Calif., the host city for Dallas Cowboys Training Camp 2012.
More than 300 young ladies, ages 7 to 18, were able to join in on the world-renown dance team's Camp DCC at Pacifica High School. Participating youth were pre-selected from local outreach and afterschool programs supported by The Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Clubs, Ventura County Rescue Mission's Lighthouse for Women and Children, Camp Goalz, Tutor Time and other local cheer teams and academies. Youth representing military families at Point Mugu and Point Hueneme were also invited to participate.
Camp attendees were broken up into age groups and spent the afternoon learning cheers and a dance routine from members of the 2012 DCC squad. Camp participants received a complimentary Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders camp t-shirt, autographs and a very special visit by ROWDY, the official mascot of the Dallas Cowboys. The day ended with campers showing off their routines to parents and friends, and also a special performance by America's Sweethearts, themselves.
