Founded in 1949, The Camillus Sportsmen’s Club has been in operation for more than 60 years.
The Club is a private, non-profit, membership operated organization dedicated to supporting shooting sports activities and conservation efforts in the Central New York region.
The Club has multiple range facilities for handgun, rifle, shotgun and archery.
Club Membership is a family membership, extending to age 18 for children. The Club membership period is Calendar year and all members have access to the clubhouse and grounds
Seniors are offered membership at ½ the standard rate. There are no set Club operating hours, outside shooting may begin at 9:00 AM any day and extends to legal sunset. These times are strictly enforced. The Club indoor range is available at all hours.
The Club offers year round organized league activities in rifle, handgun, and shotgun disciplines. Camillus Trap teams compete against other Central New York clubs in both summer and winter leagues. Additionally, The Club holds nationally registered competitions in IBS Center Fire Benchrest, IR 50/50 Rim Fire Benchrest, NRA High Power Rifle, CMP Vintage Rifle, and Winter Skeet League.
The Club is located on 100 acres of land approximately 6 miles west of Syracuse NY and borders the now abandoned improved Erie Canal between Camillus and Warners NY.
The original Erie Canal (Clinton’s Ditch) passed directly through the Club grounds and remnants of this canal can still be seen on club property.
The access road to the Club is actually a portion of the improved Erie Canal Towpath and begins at Devoe Road directly across from the Camillus Erie Canal Park.
This road is a shared road with the NYS Erie Canal Bicycle and Hiking Trail.
The Clubhouse and restrooms are handicapped accessible. A kitchen facility and picnic pavilion support many year round Club activities.
A 50 foot clubhouse attached, indoor pistol and rim fire rifle range offers eight shooting stations.
An adjacent building serves as a meeting/classroom for Courses, CMP Clinics, and is a reloading area for bench rest league shooters.
Lighted parking areas offer convenient clubhouse access.
High power rifle and handgun shooting
Is supported with an outdoor range extending to 300 meters. A bermed pit area at 300 yards protects 20 target carriers and is used for leagues, NRA and CMP registered competitions, and general membership activities.
Target boards at 50, 100, 200, and 300 yards are provided for paper target placement. There are also metal targets at 300 meters. The high power range has a covered shooter area with 40 bench rest style benches. In general any firearm can be used on the High Power Range and shooters may drive to each target placement yardage using a convenient access path.
A Dedicated Archery Range
Is available near the entrance of the club, with bale, 3D, and animal targets set up at various distances.
