Early birds can attend for as little as $335

(from a DaimlerChrysler press release)

Jeep® enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get muddier more times than ever as the brand hosts its 11th annual Camp Jeep® event and launches an all-new national driving tour, Camp Jeep On The Road®.

Camp Jeep, the brand’s legendary summertime owner’s program, gets back to basics August 12-14 in the scenic Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  The fun-filled weekend event offers Jeep owners 4x4 trail rides, off-road driving courses, live concerts by national and emerging artists, plus the finals of the Jeep King of the Mountain Biking World Championships.  New this year is the Jeep Memphis Belle Tour.  This air show -- Camp Jeep’s first – will feature the legendary B-17 Flying Fortress on Friday, plus other vintage aircraft from WWII.  Big band music and a parade of Jeep military vehicles are also planned for that day.

The cost for the entire weekend is $385 per Jeep vehicle, or $335 for owners who register by May 31.

Camp Jeep On The Road takes the best parts of the Camp Jeep experience directly to consumers with an eight-city tour.  Themed "On the move and every bit as muddy," Camp Jeep On The Road offers visitors the opportunity to put the entire Jeep product line through its paces both on- and off-road, and includes a variety of activities synonymous with the Jeep lifestyle.

"Last year Event Marketer magazine called Camp Jeep 'the preeminent annual owner-loyalty program,'", said Jeff Bell, Vice President - Jeep, Chrysler Group.  "Nothing has changed.  In fact, this year's Camp Jeep will be even better.

"When it comes to sharing the experience of legendary Jeep 4x4 capability and lifestyle with consumers, we have done it through Camp Jeep, Jeep King of the Mountain, Jeep Music Trax, gaming, sports and many other award-winning activities, Camp Jeep On The Road takes the best of our summer program and brings them directly to consumers – those who already own a Jeep as well as those who dream of owning one."

This year’s Camp Jeep is in the Pocono Mountains – the farthest east and farthest north the event has ever been held.  The air show is a first for the event.  The Jeep Memphis Belle Tour is Friday, August 12 at the Pocono Mountain Airport.  In addition to a B-17, the air show will include a P-51 Mustang and a pair of P-47 Thunderbolts.  The tour is named for the nickname of the B-17 Flying Fortress bomber that became a legend for surviving 25 missions during WWII.

Popular elements of past Camp Jeep events remain, including the Jeep 101 course, which is designed to teach off-highway driving, safety skills and demonstrate the Trail Rated capabilities of the full line of Jeep vehicles. Participants are paired with experienced trail guides as they navigate steep grades and tackle challenges, such as large rocks, log crossings, sand and other off-highway obstacles. Once they master Jeep vehicle capabilities, they have a chance to navigate various levels of 4x4 trails in their own Jeep vehicles.

In addition, Camp Jeep offers more than 150 activities for the entire family. The Kids Village features arts and crafts and a driving course with miniature Jeep vehicles. The Sports and Adventure Village features a variety of outdoor adventure sports, including mountain biking, climbing, hiking, fly-casting, and even scuba diving. The Thrills & Spills Village features extreme athletes performing high-flying action sports stunts and gives Jeep owners the opportunity to take a lesson from one of the athletes. The World of Jeep Village features a Jeep museum and the Jeep Gear Store.

The die-hard Jeep owner can also visit the Engineering Village and participate in roundtable discussions with Jeep engineers to learn more about their vehicle’s design, capabilities and features.

This event sounds wonderful. I have a buddy that attended ever camp back to 1999 and I have attended the last 4 including branson Mo.

But Jeep waited too long for the announcement of Camp. Last year we knew as soon as September. This year it was March before an anouncement was made. Plus with the Fubar's they had with events It was a pain in 2004.

So a choice had to be made.. Camp jeep 2005 in August or Moab Utah with fellow Rubicon Owners in May? hummm I chose Moab! I hope someone posts a review of Camp Jeep 2005. Good Luck to all that attend.

I am movin to the Poconos 5\20 ( MY HOUSE FINALLY IS CLOSING!)
Anyway, I hear that these Camp Jeep things are a blast.I have a friend who has a new Rubi and his dad an oldy YJ.His brother a CJ and they go every year.It is also a great place,so I hear, that newbies can learn off roading skills without pressure which in turn is an avenue for more in the hobby to have more political power to try to maintain more off roading areas.I am not going to it since I will live next door and don't want to pay for both of our Rubicons to enter even though i feel it is a good deal.I need to spend my cash on the new house and hope that they do it again in the Poconos.I will go the next time.
Jeep wave...

The best way to get rid of OnlyOneJeep is to ignore his/her rants and non-sense. He/She is just looking for some attention. Probably the only people he/she can claim as friends are the other Jeep drivers who wave as they go by, because he/she happens to be driving a Jeep. This is my first and last post in response to any OnlyOneJeep post, I will not respond to any other OnlyOneJeep post and I suggest others do the same.

$385. to go out in the trails and meet other Jeepers?....How Asinine! Can go out in the multitiude of trails and forest our way for FREE!!....Wanna meet another Jeeper? Just Wave on the road.....Guaranteed to make a friend...

These Mass-Marketed Jeep Owners are suckers for falling for this propaganda...what a waste to see what Jeep has become in the 21st century...All about the $$$$$...and not the marque....

When I see "My Jeep went to Camp Jeep" I usually flip 'em the bird...they don't deserve the "wave" IMHO...,of course.

My Jeep doesn't need a "fan club"...just a mound of dirt, a muddy trail, or something to tow; and THAT usually can be found for FREE!

Having a Camp Jeep near each coast is a good idea, too bad it was just for the 10th anniversary. They can't hold a dozen different Camp Jeeps at once to satisfy everyone, and Im sure DC has NOTHING to do with it... everyone is so quick to blame DC. This is Jeeps event, Jeep is hosting it, complaints go to Jeep! Those who live too far to drive will have a chance some years to go. I live in the NE, but I know that I will have to sit a few out and wait for them to come around again.

Pricing for Camp Jeep 11 was announced a while ago, I don't know why the story is emerging now. Plus, the early bird deadline isnt the end of May anymore, they pushed it back to June 15.

Anyway, Camp Jeep is a whole lot of fun and I encourage anyone that can go to go. We're getting the Jeeps ready to go already!

I attended Camp Jeep 2002 and had a terrifc time. Unfortunately, its been moved to the east coast and now way up northeast to far for me to drive without taking a week off of work....I would like to see it moved back to Colorado or maybe northern New Mexico area but then they would lose their east coast following.....it will probably be in the Poconos for 2 years then move again.....Texas is nice but to hot in summer, heck branson was a furnace in July and i be the weather will be great in the poconos, wish i could go........bummer.......

"This year’s Camp Jeep is in the Pocono Mountains – the farthest east and farthest north the event has ever been held" Thanks for nothing DC. How about thinking about your real base customers in the central US? Something is wrong when it takes longer to get there than the event lasts.Maybe I can catch a ride on one of the fly over planes.I guess the DC brass needed some R&R in the Poconos.BRING CAMP JEEP 2007 TO TEXAS!!!!

OnlyOneJeep is an idiot and at least admitted it so give em credit where credit is due. On the other hand a jeep owner that flips off other jeep owner because the attend a family oriented jeep event like camp jeep should be barred from ever owning or driving a jeep period!!! Im gonna put camp jeep on my jeep and if i get fortunate enough to get a flip off from another jeeper well we all know who that will be!! there might just be an all jeep fender bender, lol......

Not the same Craig who started this. I too wish that the Jeep Camps were more in the central USA, or that they do more than one. I am sure they are a blast, just like Jeep Jamborees are. Went to the Texas Spur JJ here and it was an awesome time. I don't mind spending the money for an event. Good food, good folks and a lot of fun. Of course, most of you all can go out and wheel for free in the woods or where ever, but here in TX there is NO PUBLIC LAND, so wheeling always comes at a price. I do need to move further west so I can enjoy my Jeep more.

Sorry guys. Camp Jeep might is not my thing because I'm afraid I'll be jealous of all the people with new jeeps, which I could never afford. I apologize for my comments. Just please don't ban me, I would not know what to do without this site.

Hey OnlyOneJeep, do us a favor and go away. Surely you can find another forum/blog to bother. Your ramblings are so far removed from rational thought that I wonder if you just write what you write to get a rise out of people here. Well congrats, job well done. Go find another bridge, troll.

It actually costs Jeep more to run Camp Jeep then they make off admission. When you consider the food, all the tents, brand new jeeps to test drive off-road, the off-road course, the salaries of all the staff, bands, other activities for the family, plus the cost of the planning. It adds up quick.

Camp Jeep is nothing new. It and Jeep 101 courses are there to introduce Jeep owners to what their vehicle is capable of. The money you pay goes toward food, music (usually 1 or 2 nationally-known acts), activities for the kids, and this year an air show. If people choose to go to Camp Jeep then that's their choice, they don't deserve to be alienated by people like OnlyOneJeep.

Many Jeep owners live in urban / surburban areas and don't have a muddy trail in their back yard. Anyone following land use issues will know that people abusing their rights to go off-roading (ie, leaving trash behind, tearing up the trails) has resulted in the closure of many off-road trails. This has affected both public and private lands. This has even affected the famed Rubicon Trail.

Here in states with land controlled by the BLM, you have to pay a yearly fee to access any of the public lands. Every hobby comes at a price.

Of course there are some who are too tight to spend money for any reason. They complain about the cost of new Jeeps. They don't spend the money to restore an old Jeep. They claim that people who spend their own money to go to Camp Jeep are stupid.

Sure... Because all the Jeep fans live in Texas. Sorry to mock you Craig, but this event is for everybody, not just you. Part of the fun is meeting new people from everywhere. Just a comment, but with an attitude like that you need to get out of Texas for a bit anyway :)
