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.”

Intermediate Junior Pistol Camp:  June 26 – June 28
Held in Canton, Ohio, this camp is for beginning and intermediate shooters and is limited to 25 students. The camp registration deadline is June 1.

Intermediate Junior Rifle Camp: July 5 – July 10
Located in Camp Perry, Ohio's Petraca Range, this camp features two admission periods for its 60 slots. The first admission period, open March 11 – April 30 is for junior shooters who have previously participated in an NRA Junior 3P or 4P Smallbore sectional match. The Second admission, open May 1, is open to all shooters.

Junior Advanced Competitive Smallbore Rifle Camp: July 6 – July 14
Held in Jericho, Vermont, the camp is a demanding training opportunity for advanced athletes and is limited to 20 students. The camp registration deadline is May 1.
