June 16—20, 2015

 

The Pennsylvania Rifle and Pistol Association and a grant from Friends of the NRA will support the state wide, 3 position summer camp program.  This camp is intended for intermediate level junior shooters, who have had beginning experience.  This camp was previously held at Indiana University of Pennsylvania but has been moved to accommodate a growing camp.  The Cambria Suites in Washington, PA will be used for housing, various dining facilities will be used, and shooting will be done at the Frazier Simplex Rifle Club range.  The camp capacity is 20 junior shooters, ages 13 to 17 and will be held June 16 – 20, 2015.  All shooting is with .22 cal. target rifles, on a 50’ indoor rifle range. A variety of shooting exercises and events make up the program. The SCATT system is used to analyze the natural point of aim of a shooter so proper alterations to positions can be made.  The goal of this camp is to expand and advance the shooting levels of the junior shooters attending. Encouragement is towards participation at the next higher levels of competition available to junior shooters.

 

 

Camp registration fee is $250 and all attendant must be PRPA members.  The fee, along with an NRA Foundation Grant and support from the Penna. Rifle & Pistol Association, provides the campers with hotel rooms, meals, transportation from the range to dining and lodging facilities, and related marksmanship materials. Targets are provided.  All shooters must supply their own ammunition and 3-Position shooting equipment.  All applications will be reviewed and 20 shooters will be selected.  Final deadline for submission of applications is April 1, 2015.  Please call or email Julie Vavreck to receive an application at 814-602-5889 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
