JUMP is located at 1000 W. Myrtle Street in downtown Boise. The Power Up Summit takes place entirely on levels 5 and 6 of the JUMP campus.

The JUMP Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is a systematic and comprehensive document that outlines procedures for responding to and managing various emergencies while on the Jump Campus. The plan includes key emergency personnel, communication methods, evacuation procedures, first aid procedures, emergency response teams, emergency exits, and recovery strategies. The goal of the JUMP EAP is to ensure that all individuals involved in an emergency know what to do, where to go, and how to respond in order to minimize harm and damage. Please take a minute to review the JUMP EAP before attending the Power Up Summit. 

Tractor Collection

In 1998, J. R. Simplot attended a tractor and antique farm
equipment auction in Billings, Montana at a place called
Oscar’s Dreamland. The auction was billed as the largest
private tractor and steam engine sale in the world with
nearly 6,000 people in attendance, over 2,000 of which were
registered bidders.

Over the course of three days, J. R. purchased around
110 antique tractors and steam engines along with other
miscellaneous antique farming equipment. J. R. had plans to
build an agricultural history museum where people would be
able to see these machines and teach younger generations
how we got to where we are today.

When J. R. passed away in 2008, he left behind not only his
legacy but also a collection of vintage tractors. While deciding
what to do with these tractors a new idea emerged. Why not
build a lively community space where the tractors can be
appreciated for more than just their history. They also can
be seen as inspiring works of human ingenuity, which have
helped cultivate the world we know today and inspire the
world of tomorrow.

JUMP showcases 51 vintage steam engines and tractors dating
as far back as 1885. These inspiring examples of industrial art
and innovation connect our agricultural roots to the future of
downtown Boise.

JUMP is centrally located in the heart of downtown Boise. ION has blocks of rooms at the sister hotels listed to the left. Both are within walking distance of JUMP. To ensure a room in the block, book early and use the group booking link by clicking the button under the hotel.
