Due to venue issues, two of the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) Junior Rifle Camps planned for Annapolis, Md., in July have been cancelled. The camps were set to take place July 18-20 (Advanced Standing Camp) and July 24-27 (3P Camp).
To supplement the withdrawn camps, the CMP has acquired a new location during the same dates – the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va. – where an Advanced Standing and a three-position (3P) camp will be held. A total of 18 spots will be available for each camp. Additionally, the CMP has included a bonus 3P Air Camp from May 30 to June 2 at the Judy Legerski CMP Competition Center in Anniston, Ala.
Those who have already paid and registered for the Maryland camp will be fully refunded, unless wishing to attend the supplemental camp in Lexington, Va. Since the new venue offers less firing points than the Maryland location, registration will be conducted on a first come, first served basis.
Questions on the date changes may be directed to CMP camp director, Ryan Hinson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to change over your registration to one of the new camps, contact CMP’s Alana Kelly at email@example.com.
About CMP Junior Rifle Camps:
Each year, the CMP hosts a series of hands-on, informative Junior Rifle Camps for high school age students and coaches during the summer months. Participants in the camps receive valuable lessons on intermediate and advanced marksmanship skills through various exercises and demonstrations, all led by current collegiate rifle athletes.
The Junior Rifle Camps are designed to train rifle fundamentals and techniques through group discussions and personal guidance from collegiate mentors on the firing line. The schedule also includes instructional smallbore camps for even more opportunities to learn on the range. The camps are excellent tools in developing each athlete’s strengths within the physical and mental aspects of the sport while refining trouble areas that may need more attention.
