Classes open to all Jeep 4×4 owners
Learn techniques, preparation, and how to off-road
It’s nearly fall, and that means back to school. Even for Jeep, who is getting ready to launch a new Jeep Adventure Academy, teaching owners how to use all of that four by four capability they’re paying for when they purchase the brand’s off-roaders.
It’ll start in October, and Jeep will have multiple locations across the US. Instructors from Jeep Jamboree USA, who have plenty of experience with Jeeps, off-roading, and showing drivers the ropes, will teach what Jeepers need to know.
“Off-roading is a rite of passage for Jeep 4×4 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 4×4 vehicles that provide owners with a sense of capability, safety and security to handle any condition or adventure with confidence.”
The classes will include 4×4 system basics as well as driving techniques, vehicle preparation, and necessary equipment. Drivers will also be taught how to read terrain properly, how to navigate challenging obstacles, safety tips, and, most importantly, students of the camp will learn proper trail etiquette.
A one-day session starts from under $100, and yes, you have to own a Jeep 4×4. No Raptors or Broncos allowed, but that’s ok since Ford is working on an event of its own, called the Bronco Off-Roadeo, for blue-oval drivers wanting to get dirty. We’ll assume that the events will be heavy on the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator, but even the Renegade is welcome. The first three Jeep Adventure Academy events will happen the first three weeks of October, first in Holly, MI, then Seymour, MO, and finally Hollister, CA.
