Beginning this October, the Jeep Adventure Academy will take place in select locations across the country and will be led by off-roading experts and prominent instructors from Jeep Jamboree USA.

“Off-roading is a rite of passage for Jeep 4x4 owners and the new Jeep Adventure Academy will provide key knowledge every off-roader can use for hitting the trails,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand, FCA - North America. “The new Jeep Adventure Academy underscores the Jeep brand’s commitment to delivering Jeep 4x4 vehicles that provide owners with a sense of capability, safety and security to handle any condition or adventure with confidence.”

Jeep Adventure Academy classes will focus on several essential areas of off-roading instruction, including 4x4 system basics, driving techniques, trail etiquette, vehicle preparation and equipment, how to properly read terrain and challenging obstacles, safety tips and more.

The Jeep Adventure Academy will take place during the first three weeks in October at the following locations:
Registration is available at jeepadventureacademy.com. A one-day session starts at $99 and requires Jeep 4x4 vehicle ownership. The academy sessions will be led by professional staff from Jeep Jamboree USA, an organization that has been conducting off-road adventures since 1953.

Meh...none too impressed with Jeep Jamboree and how it's run. Seem like a bunch of brand loyalist pricks from the dealings I've had with them. Wouldn't let your Jeep on the runs if it was "too modified" or had bigger than I think 40" tires.

Sounds like Camp Jeep to me. I worked at one in Virginia for a couple summers in the early 2000s

I wish they'd bring camp jeep back. What a great event. We did '96 at camp hale and 2000 in Virginia. Probably too many owners now but I'd think they could do 3 or 4 regional to spread things out. I remember seeing the TJ displayed in '96 and impressing me enough to buy one a few years later that I still have.

I loved Camp Jeep. I went to Camp Jeep events held in Virginia. I think it was 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2007. I would go again in a second if they have another one!

This is a good idea for newbies like me. Perhaps there will be a Colorado edition in 2021. I liked the Ouray Jeep Jam,

need to goggle “camp Jeep’ so I can learn what that was.....

‘’edit:
ok, googled it..... it’s driving around a course at an auto show or something?

just like this sounds with the exception of a bunch of demo jeeps available to try as well, three days and concerts and family events added in. I forged some lifelong friendships while working it

Excellent idea, most people don't realize what a stock JL can do ; this is probably in response to something similar that Ford is doing for Bronco, when it becomes available.
