Hillsdale College’s John Anthony Halter Shooting Sports Education Center in Hillsdale, Michigan, is hosting the 2024 USA Shooting Junior Olympic Development Camps this summer. The camps are open to intermediate-to-advanced trap and skeet shooters ages 12-20. 

USA Shooting’s 2024 Junior Olympic Development Camps will take place at the Hillsdale College Halter Center on these dates: July 14-19 for trap and July 21-26 for skeet.

Hillsdale College Halter Center
Hillsdale College’s Halter Center has four international skeet fields, a 22-station sporting clays course, five international bunkers, one small arms range, one action shooting range, a five-stand range, an international archery range and nine American trapshooting fields.

 

Designed to help promising young shooters advance in the Olympic shotgun disciplines, the Junior Olympic Development Camps provide Olympic hopefuls with high-level training from national team members, former Olympians and world champions.

“These are some of the most promising young shooters in the country—maybe even the world,” Caitlin Connor Royer, assistant program development and competition manager for Hillsdale College’s Halter Center and multiple World Cup medalist said. “These camps provide them with the coaching and mentorship they need to take it to the next level. USA Shooting is already one of the top programs in the world. Events like this ensure it will become even stronger.”

Following each camp, the Halter Center will host the Junior Olympic Championships for each respective discipline. If they choose to compete, attendees will have the opportunity to test their shooting prowess against one another on the national stage.

Some 2024 Junior Olympic Development Camp attendees may even qualify for the Junior Olympic team.

“The Halter Center really is the perfect place to host these events,” Royer said. “Its shooting sports facilities are state-of-the-art, and lodging, meal and transportation accommodations provided by Hillsdale College help everyone to concentrate on what they are here to do—shoot.”

Junior Olympic Development Camp
Opened in 2008, the Halter Center is a state-of-the-art shooting facility located five miles from the Hillsdale College campus.

 

More information about the Hillsdale College Halter Center: “Opened in 2008, the Halter Center aims to introduce individuals to shooting sports and encourage interest across all levels of experience.
