Volunteer for Jambo 6 here

2019's Jambo 6 will be held at Holiday Park in Indianapolis Indiana.

Presetup - Wed July 10
Setup - Thu July 11
Competition - Fri-Sun July 12,13,14
Training - Day July 15th


Our goal with Jambo is to create an approachable tree climbing competition centered around the principles of safety, innovation, communication, and the sharing of knowledge and new techniques. Tree climbing is always evolving, and Jambo strives to continually adapt to the ideas, needs, and culture of our industry. 


Together we can create a down to earth competition where climbers are encouraged to experiment and innovate, all while displaying their skills, techniques, and creativity. We want to showcase our contenders, the masters of our craft, doing what they do best - working. 



Jambo entrants compete in four challenges:

Two Worksite Challenges: A four-person team competes to ring as many bells as possible in the shortest time, simulating a real work environment with the addition of unique challenges.

Two Rigging Challenges: Four-person teams must choose the tools they'll use to demonstrate their rigging skills. They'll have to raise, lower, and move logs large and small.




Congratulations to our previous Jambo champions:

Chris Coates - 2014

Chad Brey - 2015

Nick Markley - 2016

Doug Tochtrop and Ryan Torcicollo - 2017

Fantastic 4 - Mark Gaudet, Joel Dreise, Adrian Henrich, Micah Jaster - 2018
