MiscellaneousCamp Jeep 2008 Rumors
Posted by mike on 2008/4/4 9:59:23 (4078) reads

We've gotten a ton of emails over the past few weeks about Camp Jeep 2008 and rumors about it being canceled.

We haven't heard anything from any official sources, but there is also a rumor going around the Camp Jeep 2008 will take place in late July at Oak Ridge Estates in Virginia (same location as last year).

Several reader who have contacted Jeep about this year's event have all received the same response: "we have nothing to announce at this time".

The official Camp Jeep site is still showing the 2007 recap.

As soon as anything official is announced, we'll post it.

UPDATE: 4/7/08 - User JeepXK just emailed me a link to this message from what looks to be BBDO (Jeep's marketing arm) on JeepCommander.com:

Because we really want to do things right, the decision has been made to host the 15th annual Camp Jeep in July 2009. We know the last Camp Jeep will be a hard one to top, but the lead time gained this year will permit additional planning, and will certainly aid in producing a superior Camp Jeep event for 2009 resulting in a more gratifying owner experience.

I haven't been able to find this information on any of the official Jeep sites, so stay tuned...

If you're on Facebook, the Official Jeep page sent out the following update to its fans:

Newsflash - The Jeep® brand has selected summer of 2009 for the 15th Camp Jeep.
10:15am Today
Everyone had a blast at Camp Jeep #14 – it was the biggest, most successful event to date. We’re already gearing up to make Camp Jeep #15 the best event to date. As always, you can expect top-notch music, entertainment, four-wheeling, vehicle displays, and interaction with Jeep designers, engineers and more.

So there you have it. Honestly, I was debating a skip this year anyway so for me it's just as well. I hope, though, they announce dates/location early enough so people can plan a decent vacation and get projects done before the event.

 Re: Camp Jeep 2008 Rumors
Well, Jeep would be kind of foolish to drop the program. It's the bigest Owner Loyalty program in the business.

Although I would like it someplace else, Camp Jeep in VA >>>always<<< sells out.

Last year I went and it was packed. I saw a group of 4 Jeeps from Alaska.

As much as I liked it up here by me in WI in 06' we know it was only held there because of the racetrack and the SRT Grand Cherokee being released.


If Camp Jeep is dropped, theres still a chance to wheel on Oak Ridge Estates, as there will be a "Wheel In" there this summer as well.

I'd like to see it go back to Colorado for a year or two....here's to hoping!

I don't remember it being this late in 07 when they announced the location. However, assuming the rumors for 08 are true I already booked a campground and looking forward to another fun family vacation !!!
