Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco (or "No-Be" for short) is a thriving Boy Scout Camp tucked away in the hills of northwestern New Jersey. The camp opened in 1927, making it the oldest continuously operating Scout camp in New Jersey. Since then, countless Scouts have made the trip to No-Be and forged memories to last a lifetime.
The camp is private property of the Boy Scouts of America. To protect the health and safety of our youth campers, the camp is not open to non-Scout visitors at any time.
A little over 30 years ago, there was also a small film shot there. You might have heard of it... it was called "Friday the 13th, Part 1".
As horror films don't really fit well with the program of a Boy Scout camp, the BSA has not allowed movie fans to visit the birthplace of the most popular horror film franchise ever created.
That changed for a few lucky folks for a few hours on Friday, May 13th, 2011... the day of the first-ever camp tour. A relatively small group of horror fans purchased a ticket and traveled to camp (from as far away as 3000 miles away!) not knowing what to expect when they got there. Well, the tour was a huge success! 100% of the surveyed attendees said they had a fantastic unforgettable time and most of them said they would return for a future tour.
