Are you looking for a summer camp that will enrich your child's shooting skills, teach discipline and focus, and help them build friendships? There's good news: The NRA is now accepting applications for its competitive shooting camps for junior shooters. These camps, which run every year, help juniors aged 12 to 21 develop their marksmanship skills from casual to competitive through challenging and rewarding lessons.
“These camps have everything you need to take your game to the next level,” said NRA National Coach Trainer Daniel Subia. “Each day will be filled with exercises designed to help you master your body positioning, breath and trigger control to consistently shoot high scores. You'll be tired at the end of each day, but you'll also leave a better shooter than you were before.”
