Junior Rifle Camps and Clinics

Civilian Marksmanship ProgramYouthJunior Rifle Camps and Clinics

As our sport changes with the introduction of new techniques, equipment, and philosophies, Junior Rifle Camps must innovate with it. We understand the impact of our camps on not only the junior athletes, but also the parents and coaches we reach every year. That is why we are excited to announce our new “Coaches Curriculum” to be taught at all of our 2023 Junior Rifle Camps. This curriculum has something for everyone, regardless of experience level. From learning how to set up a strong and stable position, conquer the mental side of our sport, and even speak with fellow coaches on effective fundraising strategies, this curriculum has something for everyone.

On top of this much anticipated addition, the athletes will also notice a host of new additions in their camp experience. From updated camp presentations to a more exciting and efficient camp structure, athletes will be sure to have a great experience while still receiving the first class instruction they have always expected. We are excited to continue improving the Junior Rifle Camps for all that attend, and we look forward to seeing you in 2023!

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 (limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender). 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.
