Besides the practice sessions, other highlights include the Dallas Cowboys Experience, consisting of inflatable games and activities, live performances by the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders in addition to Cheerleading Camp and ‘Punt, Pass & Kick’ for youth.

Take a virtual dive into the kelp forest without even getting wet by participating in the Live Dive Program offered on Wednesdays at the Channel Islands National Park, now through Labor Day. Visitors can interact with park scuba divers while they experience a seldom seen underwater environment.

The Live Dive is an interactive broadcast program that takes place from the landing cove at Anacapa Island where park rangers wear special microphone-equipped dive masks and explain what the camera is revealing. So, you don’t need to put on a wetsuit to enjoy the depths of the ocean – a simple reservation is all you need to experience this incredible journey!





The Fourth of July will be celebrated along the water’s edge during the ‘Fireworks by the Sea’ in Channel Islands Harbor. The annual event features daytime activities including a special Farmers’ Market, an old-fashioned family BBQ, arts & crafts, live entertainment and a children’s area. The fireworks show starts at 9 p.m. and can be viewed from all points throughout the harbor.
