Junior Air Rifle Camps and Clinics

2017 junior air rifle camps & clinics

Each summer the Civilian Marksmanship Program sponsors a popular series of Junior Air Rifle Camps and Clinics to teach intermediate and advanced rifle marksmanship skills to junior shooters and their adult leaders. This bulletin provides detailed information about the camps and how to apply to attend them. You may click on each of the following camp links to learn site-specific information about each camp. All camps are one week long, three-position air rifle camps, with the exception of the Outreach Clinics and the Advanced Standing Camp.


Camp Alum ginny thrasher, gold in rio Olympic games

Thrasher GM

Congratulations to Summer Air Rifle Camp alum, Ginny Thrasher, who became the first gold medal winner for the United States and the first gold medal winner of the 2016 Games after firing an unbeatable score in the Women’s 10-meter Air Rifle event.


Her unbelievable performance also named her the youngest female to ever win the first gold medal and set a new Olympic record with a finals score of 208.0 – finishing an unprecedented full point above Du Li of China.


In the past, Ginny attended the CMP’s Summer Air Rifle Camps to further hone her rifling abilities.


“The best part about CMP camps for me was the focus on the basics,” Ginny said. “I think no matter what skill level you are your process can always be improved by going back to the basics. I very much use those basics and the good foundation set for me in CMP and other camps every time I shoot.”

The tuition the CMP charges for these camps does not begin to cover the total cost of operating the camps; the CMP subsidizes the camp program through its budget for the camps.

The 2017 CMP Junior Rifle Camp Fees are as follows:

$285 (athlete) $50 (adult) for Three-Position Air Rifle Camps

$225 (athlete) $50 (adult) Advanced Standing Camp

$175 (athlete) $30 (adult) for Clinics



First, read the camp information page linked to your desired camp.

A $50 deposit and a Medical Release Form is required with each athlete registration, and a Medical Release form is required with each adult leader registration.  Incomplete registrations will not be accepted.  The remaining balance for camp fees must be submitted by 10 May.

Links to the Registration and the Medical Release Forms can be found at the bottom of this program. Payment for camp may be made via check or credit card.  Fees submitted with registration forms will be returned in the event a desired camp is full.

Adult Leaders will be notified via email of athlete/team acceptance to a camp. Adult leaders: please provide a valid email address and phone number with registration form.

Deposits/fees are non-refundable once a participant is accepted into camp, but they may be applied to a substitute participant. To substitute a participant, a PARTCIPANT SUBSITUTION FORM must be submitted to CMP, a link to this form is provided at the bottom of this program. Substitutions will not be accepted over the phone.

Participants unable to attend a camp, for which registration is complete and fees are paid, must notify Sommer Wood or Catherine Green in writing two (2) weeks prior to the beginning of their selected camp. Fees (less the $50 deposits) will be refunded for good cause shown prior to 10 May. Cancellations, with good cause shown, after 10 May will receive a refund for half (1/2) of the camp fees. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS GIVEN FOR “NO SHOWS”.



You will need a Competition Tracker Number (CT#) to Register. If you do not remember your CT#, or do not have one, please go here

Instructions to find or create a CT# can be found here.



To register online, you must log into Competition Tracker (CT) separately for each individual that is registering for your group.  This means you will need the Competition Tracker User Name and Password for each person.
