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
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.”
THANK YOU! To our campers, parents and other adult leaders for another successful summer camp season!
we look forward to working on improving even more junior skills when the camps return in 2017!
