If you or someone you know is a young shooter looking to mix some top-notch coaching with summer fun, then look no further than our NRA Junior Shooting Camps. Each summer, NRA offers a Junior Pistol Camp and a Junior Smallbore Rifle Camp at Camp Perry in Northern Ohio.
Each is a five-day camp offering expert instruction by NRA Certified Coaches. Both camps are geared towards intermediate shooters, but beginners are accepted on a space available basis. Open to ages 12-18 years, these camps provide young people with the chance to improve their shooting skills under the guidance and supervision of experiences coaches. They’ll learn and train alongside like-minded youth focused on taking their shooting abilities to the next level.
The Junior Pistol Camp will be held July 12-16 and the Junior Smallbore Rifle Camp will be held July 23-27, both in conjunction with the National Matches at Camp Perry. The Junior Pistol Camp is limited to 50 shooters and will focus on conventional and international pistol shooting, while the Junior Smallbore Rifle Camp is limited to 72 shooters and centers on 3 and 4-position rifle shooting.
Advanced registration (by June 15) is just $200.00, standard registration (after June 15) is $225.00. This includes training materials and administrative fees, but does not cover travel or lodging costs.
First-time campers for the Junior Pistol Camp only are eligible for tuition and travel reimbursement of up to $500.00 per individual thanks to the generous support of the Ohio Gun Collectors Association.
