Sugarcreek, Ohio-based nuCamp said more than 300 teardrop trailers descended on its home community recently for the sixth annual uCamp Teardrop rally.
uCamp22 was held at Winklepleck Grove Campground in Sugarcreek, less than a mile from the nuCamp manufacturing facility and service center. The event featured a full entertainment schedule, group meals and opportunities to socialize with other nuCamp teardrop enthusiasts.
One of the attendees was David MacDougall, a TAB 320 owner who traveled from Canada to attend the rally.
“I can’t find enough superlatives to describe how much I enjoy uCamp,” he said. “The people, the nuCamp staff, the location and the surrounding area are simply fantastic.”
The company said highlights of the multiday event included a wine and cheese welcoming event, a wedding feast for one of nuCamp’s brand ambassadors and a visit to the world’s largest cuckoo clock in the heart of the village. More than 100 attendees gathered at the clock to listen and dance to the Swiss-themed music.
The annual swap meet is another key uCamp event with campers bringing homemade goods or gently used accessories to sell. This year’s swap meet was notable as nuCamp provided a peek into a mobile app in the final stages of development with the release coming in early August. The attendees were able to check out all the features of the app.
Two seminars were new to uCamp this year: Battle Born, a new vendor partner for nuCamp, presented on camping with lithium batteries, and an Amish panel, which consisted of nuCamp team members, provided attendees with insight into the Amish way of life.
“This year’s event was the largest to date, with over 450 attendees from 35 states and two provinces,” said Scott Hubble, CEO. “We have an amazing community that we are proud to call family. We are blessed to facilitate an event where owners can connect with each other, as well as nuCamp team members. uCamp also allows our team to see firsthand how our products are being used. This event strengthens and reinvigorates the greater nuCamp community – both the customer, as well as the team. We look forward to this event as much as our campers.”
The planning has already begun for uCamp23, scheduled for June 12-16, 2023.
