Visit the Original
Camp Crystal Lake

Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco is private property of the Northern New Jersey Council, BSA.  To protect the health and safety of our youth campers, the camp is not open to visitors at any time outside of official tour dates. Thanks for your understanding!

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 2023 tour season was the biggest and best yet – we welcomed fans from every US state and a least 12 countries. 

Our events vary each tour season. Our 2024 events include several options:

  • Our shorter lakefront tour (minimum age 8) takes you directly to the filming locations surrounding the heart of the set: our famous lakefront area. Available on October 13th. Tickets available below.
  • Our fan-favorite extended tour (minimum age 13) visits all of the filming locations at our famous camp where over 80% of the movie was filmed. Available on the weekends of September 13th and October 11th & 18th. Tickets available below.
  • Our incredible overnight experience (minimum age 21) includes a full tour, dinner, movie screening, campfire, overnight stay in a movie cabin, breakfast, memories to last a lifetime and much more! This exclusive experience has only been offered on 5 weekends during the entire history of our tours. Available on the weekend of September 13th. Tickets available below.

If you can’t make it to one of our 2024 events, please take a moment to join our mailing list to be notified when future events are announced.
