The Competition and Camaraderie of Tree Jam Camp

The Competition and Camaraderie of Tree Jam Camp

Another year, another Tree Jam Camp!! As someone who has attended it from its inception it’s been awesome to watch the transition from a one day competition in a small Port Huron Park to a three day event at a beautiful beachside camp. What started as a fun and low key competition has gradually morphed over the years into a low key tree family reunion. Yes, it’s still a competition of sorts, but that’s not the main purpose. The main purpose of Tree Jam Camp always has been and always will be camaraderie.
