After going virtual in 2020, the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) Junior Rifle Summer Camps are returning to an in-person format in 2021.

Running from May to August, the 10-week schedule includes an assortment of camps and clinics for high-school age (9-12 grade) junior athletes and their adult leaders on intermediate and advanced marksmanship skills through various exercises and demonstrations.

New in 2021, the CMP Summer Camp lineup will also include the addition of instructional smallbore camps – set to be held in Florida, Ohio and Minnesota.

Registration for all of the 2021 Summer Camps and Clinics opens February 8 and closes April 30. Classes fill quickly, so be sure to sign up early!

About CMP Junior Rifle Camps:

Athletes in the CMP Summer Camps are coached directly, one-on-one, by qualified student-athletes from the top NCAA rifle teams in the country. During the week-long camp sessions, juniors learn tips for both the physical and mental aspects of competition shooting, such as:

  • Positioning
  • Goal setting
  • Anxiety control
  • Optimizing equipment performance
  • Building self-confidence on the firing line
  • Many other meaningful lessons to use on and off the range

Outside of the week-long curriculum, there are other options for juniors, including Advanced Standing Camps (designed to be a follow-up program for those who have attended one or more of the three-position camps or clinics) and Outreach Clinics (nearly identical to the full-length course, with a compressed three-day format).

For a list of dates and more detailed camp information, visit the Junior Rifle Camps and Clinics page on the CMP website at https://thecmp.org/camps.
