Both the Junior Pistol and Smallbore Rifle Camps will be held at historic Camp Perry near Port Clinton, Ohio. These National Junior Camps are designed for intermediate-level pistol or smallbore rifle shooters ages 12 to 18. (However, beginners will be accepted on a space-available basis.) The pistol camp is limited to 50 students, while the rifle camp will have a maximum of 72 shooters. The programs combine classroom study, dry-fire training, live-fire exercises, and competitions. The NRA Junior Smallbore Camp provides instruction in 3-position and 4-position rifle shooting. A team of experienced, NRA-Certified Coaches will guide attendees through the history of marksmanship, equipment selection, rules, fundamentals of shooting, position development, mental training, and tournament operations.

According to Marcus Rabb, NRA National Rifle Coach/Trainer: “This is a wonderful opportunity for junior shooters to learn new skills. The coaches do a fantastic job of teaching shooters of all levels at this camp, challenging those near the top to be even better while encouraging those just beginning. It really is a worthwhile experience for every junior shooter.”
