TreeJam Camp

Technically, yes, Tree Jam Camp is a climbing competition. However, at its core it’s a summer getaway weekend; a time and space for men and women in the tree climbing industry to gather with their families and hold a huge tree community family reunion. It’s an event where sharing skills and knowledge are encouraged and swapping tree stories are the norm. It’s a space where you’re around like-minded people who have the same excitement and passion for trees, the industry, and the community as do you. It’s a yearly pilgrimage for those in the industry and the 2017 event was one for the ages.
