Auburn Hills, Mich., Jun 4, 2007 - The B-52's, known as the world's greatest party band, and Shaun White, the Olympic gold-medal winning snowboarder, will join a star-studded lineup at Camp Jeep 2007
, the annual "owners only" three-day mix of off-road driving and other family-friendly outdoor activities, to be held July 26-28 at the Oak Ridge Estate in Nelson County, Va., near Charlottesville.
In addition to the B-52's, who will close the annual event on Saturday, July 28 with crowd favorites that include "Love Shack" and "Roam" as well as a few songs from their forthcoming album, Jeep owners will get to see performances from the high-flying skateboarder Tony Hawk and snowboarder Shaun White. Grammy-award winning country star Tim McGraw will take a break from his "Jeep Presents Soul2Soul Tour 2007" to perform at Camp Jeep on Thursday, July 26.
"Camp Jeep is one of the premier owner-loyalty events in the country, and this year we have premier entertainment to match," said John Plecha, Director - Jeep Marketing and Global Communications, Chrysler Group. "With more Jeep vehicles in the lineup this year, plus a lower registration fee and phenomenal entertainment, Camp Jeep 2007 will be better than ever."
With an all-new layout and a few other surprises, Camp Jeep 2007 will include many of the activities that have made it so popular with owners in the past. There will be more 4x4 off-road trails, larger vehicle displays including historic vehicles and the all-new seven vehicle Jeep lineup, more activities for all ages, more food and musical entertainment, and more chances for owners to meet with Jeep engineers. It will also be the owners' first chance to see the all-new 2008 Jeep Liberty.
One of the "must see" demonstrations will be on the skateboard ramp. White will trade in his snowboard for a skateboard and will make a special appearance with Hawk on Saturday, July 28 to amaze spectators with their high-flying moves.
Registration for Camp Jeep, which is open only to Jeep vehicle owners, is $295 per vehicle. Registration and additional information are available at www.jeep.com/campjeep
