Each year, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) hosts a series of hands-on, highly informative camps for junior rifle athletes. Running from May to August, the CMP Junior Rifle Camps present opportunities for high-school age students to receive valuable lessons on intermediate and advanced marksmanship skills through various exercises and demonstrations.

The Junior Rifle Camps are designed to train young athletes on air rifle fundamentals and techniques, through group discussions and personal guidance from collegiate mentors on the firing line, and also include an arrangement of instructional smallbore camps – set to be held in Ohio and Massachusetts in July.

The camps are excellent tools in further developing each athlete’s strengths within the physical and mental aspects of the sport while also refining trouble areas that may need more attention. Students are able to apply the constructive lessons learned in camp to their own budding marksmanship careers, with many even moving on to college programs and beyond.

Don’t miss out on this fun and enlightening opportunity! 

Registration for the 2022 Summer Camps opened Monday, January 31. Classes fill quickly, so 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/youth/junior-air-rifle-camps-and-clinics/.
