What is a Jeep Jamboree?

  • Jeep Jamborees are off-road adventure weekends organized by Jeep Jamboree USA. They combine the great outdoors, down-to-earth people, and capable Jeep 4x4s.
  • The first Jeep Jamboree was organized in 1953 by 4×4 pioneer Mark A. Smith, who led a group across the Sierra Nevada Mountains via the old Rubicon Trail.
  • Jeep Jamborees became a popular tradition (true to this date) when Willys Motors (the manufacturer of Jeep vehicles at the time) became a part in 1954.
