Welcome to the premiere bucket list experience for Friday the 13th movie fans! Our tours and events take place at the camp in Hardwick, New Jersey, USA where over 80% of Friday the 13th, Part 1 was filmed. Our nostalgic guided tours visit the filming locations that have not changed much since the filming in 1979. The private youth camp has been operating continuously since 1927 and these events are run by camp alumni that are passionate about ensuring that the camp is around for many generations to come. Our first public tours took place in 2011, but we have only had tours on approximately 80 days since then, so tickets for these exclusive events can sell out quickly.

Our events vary each tour season. The remaining tickets for 2023 feature our extended tour and our overnight experience. Our fan-favorite extended tour (minimum age 13) visits all of the tour stops at the camp and offers plenty of time for questions and photos. Our VIP overnight experience (minimum age 21) is a superfan’s dream and includes a full tour, dinner, movie screening, campfire, overnight stay in a movie cabin, breakfast, memories to last a lifetime and much more! 

If you can’t make it to one of our 2023 events, please take a moment to enter our future ticket waitlist to be notified when future events are announced.
