Hillsdale College will be hosting this year’s USA Shooting Junior Olympic Development Camps at the John Anthony Halter Shooting Sports Education Center in Hillsdale, Mich., from June 19-24.

These camps are open to intermediate-to-advanced trap and skeet shooters ages 12-20.

The USA Shooting Junior Olympic Development Camps aim to improve the skills of shooters during a six-day course featuring guided instruction from current and former U.S. Olympians and National Team members. Sessions include individual and small group coaching with Olympic shooters, a presentation on the U.S. Constitution from Hillsdale College faculty, a sports physiology session with USA Shooting trainers and shooting competitions.

The cost of attendance is $2,000 per student, which covers transportation to and from Detroit Metropolitan Airport, housing, meals, clay targets and ammunition, small group coaching and evening activities.

“Our goal is to provide Olympic hopefuls with the knowledge and training to develop their skills,” Caitlin Connor Royer, assistant program development and competition manager for Hillsdale College’s Halter Shooting Sports Education Center, said. “These camps are important because they provide students with small group training from some of the best shooters in the nation.”

As mentioned, the camps will be held at the Hillsdale College John Anthony Halter Shooting Sports Education Center, which since 2019 has been the official home of the USA Shooting National Team. “These athletes are the future of the shooting sports,” Hillsdale College Chief Administrative Officer Rich Pйwй, said. “We are honored to host them and the Olympic greats who will be coaching them.”
