Junior Air Rifle Camps and Clinics

Junior Air Rifle Camps and Clinics

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. 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, with the exception of the Outreach Clinics and the Advanced Standing Camps.

*Updates* - The curriculum is a living document, and is constantly undergoing changes. However, this year we will be changing the format more drastically to look at suggestions from past participants and coaches. We will return to having coaches only classroom sessions, as well as a camp format that will attempt to evaluate the level of the athlete to better cater to their education during the short time we have during the camps.

Also, continuing with our trend of expansion, the Junior Rifle Camps will tentatively be adding Junior Pistol Camps in tandem to the Rifle Camp calendar below. Dates are not set at this time, but we are working to get those worked for all those willing to participate.

*NOTE : Registrations will only be taken via paper, email, or fax, or through CT online registration. All registration (aside from CT online Registrations) must be submitted on official CMP paperwork. No other forms of registration will be accepted.* 

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

A $50.00 deposit or full payment and a Medical Release Form is required with each athlete and adult Registration Form.  Incomplete registrations will NOT be accepted.  All deposits are nonrefundable.  

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.

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 PARTICIPANT SUBSTITUTION 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.  *Substitutions after 10 May will incur a $10.00 fee per participant.*

Participants unable to attend a camp, for which registration is complete and fees are paid, must notify Chance Cover 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 15 May. Cancellations, with good cause shown, after 15 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. 

Team registration is not possible for Junior Rifle Camps. You must register each team member separately.
