2013 Jeep Boy Scout Rendezvous
Located south of Detroit Metro Airport in Belleville, MI, the 2013 Great Lakes Boy Scout Rendezvous took place in Willow Metropark in September. More than 6,000 Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and their families spent the weekend inside the park, camping and participating in the many outdoor activities hosted at the event.
Jeep offered event guests the opportunity to experience the 2013 vehicle lineup while riding through the picturesque park on an exciting off-road trail. Eight vehicles were used, consisting of a mix of Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Compass and Patriot vehicles. Rides were given by Gordinier Group trained off-road drivers, who provided detailed product information during the ride.
Three days of rain prior to the event made for wet, but exciting trails at this year’s rendezvous.
The off-road trail featured tight, wooded trails with several challenging ascents, descents, off-camber turns and everyone’s favorite – mud!
Grass-roots events like this are a nice change of pace and a great way to give something back to an organization that shares many of the brand pillars with Jeep.
