A Statement on the Junior Camp Price Increases

The CMP is dedicated to its mission of teaching marksmanship and firearms safety to the nation’s youth. This is our first and foremost priority, and the Junior Rifle Camps are an essential avenue in this mission. With that said the Junior Rifle Camp program is not immune to the nation’s current economic state and rising travel costs. With operating cost well over $800,000 this past year, changes must be made to continue the advancement and success of our mission for the years to come.

In an effort to help do this, the decision has been made to increase the Junior Camp entry fee. Over the years, minimal increases have been made to the cost of camps while they continually grow in size, scope, quality, and cost. We believe our camps are priced at a fair value and are at a place where we can sustain these increases to the program. Our goal will always be to provide a first class camp experience to all of those who attend and we look forward to the many years ahead of teaching marksmanship excellence.

If you are interested in hosting a camp during the year or have any suggestions for the Junior Rifle Camp program, please contact me using the information below. See you in 2024!

Each summer, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) sponsors a popular series of Junior Rifle Camps and Clinics to teach intermediate and advanced rifle marksmanship skills to junior shooters and their adult leaders. Camps are open to any and all entrants. All camps are one week long, with the exception of the Outreach Clinics and the Advanced Standing Camps. CMP offers camps for both Smallbore and Air Rifle.
