Friday the 13th, Part 1 Filming Location Tour

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.

cabinThe 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.

The second tour was held on Friday, September 13th, 2013.  This event sold out in 8 minutes and had 5 times the number of attendees.  The response from the attendees was once again overwhelmingly positive.

We don't have another tour planned at the moment, but we would highly recommend that you join our mailing list to stay up to date on any new announcements.

The camp tour is an official event of the Northern New Jersey Boy Scout Council.
