CMP 2021 Junior Rifle Camps Return To Ranges

After going virtual in 2020, the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s CMP 2021 Junior Rifle Camps are returning to an in-person format in Summer 2021.

Running from May to August, the 10-week schedule includes an assortment of camps and clinics for high-school age (9-12 grade) junior athletes and their adult leaders. Topics include intermediate and advanced marksmanship skills for precision 10 Meter shooting through various exercises and demonstrations.

New in 2021, the CMP Summer Camp lineup will also include the addition of instructional smallbore camps for powderburner disciplines. These are set to be held in Florida, Ohio and Minnesota.

Registration for all of the CMP 2021 Junior Rifle Camps and Clinics opens February 8 and closes April 30. Classes fill quickly, so be sure to sign up early!

– Positioning
– Goal setting
– Anxiety control
– Optimizing equipment performance
– Building self-confidence on the firing line
– Many other meaningful lessons to use on and off the range

Outside of the week-long curriculum, there are other options for juniors. These include Advanced Standing Camps which are designed to be a follow-up program for those who have attended one or more of the three-position camps or clinics.

In addition, Outreach Clinics provide a nearly identical to the full-length course, with a compressed three-day format.
