Jeep is not just a car, it is a lifestyle, as commonly said; “you don’t own a Jeep, you live it.”
The Jeep® brand has organized the 2019 Camp Jeep in its sixth edition, the flagship event for Jeep Owners Group (JOG) and all Jeep fans and enthusiasts, that took place in Italy, in the famous town of San Martino di Castrozza on July 12 – 14.
The stunning location was carefully selected this year to welcome fans of the brand and Jeep Owners Group (JOG) members from across Europe, Middle East and Africa and provided the fitting backdrop for this year’s action-packed program. Over and above, the Camp Jeep area was set up using 100 square metres of tree trunks totalling 250 tons of wood, all sourced from trees which collapsed in the neighbouring forests during last October storms.
Three days of thrilling adventures took place for participants of Camp Jeep 2019, where they had the opportunity to enjoy off-road adventures with instructors from Jeep Academy, test drive the entire range of Jeep SUVs, put their Jeep model’s legendary capability to the test around an array of off-road courses, including rocky, muddy, soft-sand terrains…etc. They also had the chance to join in several other activities, including outdoor sports, barbeques, live music concerts and entertainment for children, all leading up to the spectacular conclusion: the Jeep Parade, which reached the Rolle Pass at an altitude of 2,000 meters.
The sixth Camp Jeep was a great success: over 700 Jeep SUVs and over 1,500 people attended, proof of the special connection between the Jeep brand and its enthusiasts.
