If simply walking in the shoes of Jason Voorhees (and his mother) isn't creepy enough for you, NoBe is offering an even more interesting way to celebrate the date. How? By selling pieces of Camp Crystal Lake itself!NoBe supporters can score themselves a framed piece of the dock where Jason drowned, setting into motion twelve movies and a television series. It can be yours for just $75, a total steal considering the bragging rights it affords any die hard horror fan.

Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, also known as NoBe, is a Boy Scouts of America camp located in Hardwick Township, New Jersey, owned by the Northern New Jersey Council. It opened in 1927.

In 1979, the first Friday the 13th movie was filmed here, and has become a major part of NoBe's history. The camp was the main filming location, and many of the structures are still the same. 

The movie spawned countless sequels, and practically invented the slasher horror film genre, inspiring Freddy Krueger (who he later fought) as well as future movie killers. Camp Crystal lake was originally said to be in NJ (where the original was actually filmed) but subsequent movies claim the camp is located in CT (where the 2nd film was shot).

The camp is private property of the Boy Scouts of America and is usually not open to non-Scout visitors except on special occasions, so at the request of the managers, please do not come to the campsite without prior permission. It is possible to contact the managers to visit the camp location on off-seasons, but please be courteous and respect the camp property.

Situated alongside the Kittatinny Ridge, the camp is actively used by the Scouting community of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and beyond. Their summer camp program and food is not to be beat and our outstanding facilities are perfect for winter Scout camping and events. 

Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco operates at or near capacity for six weeks every summer, as well as each weekend throughout the remainder of the year. Owned and operated by the Northern NJ Council, BSA, the camp is easily one of the most popular and best-loved Boy Scout camps in the state.

The camp encompasses 380+ acres, and is virtually surrounded by the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, as well as by Green Acres projects of the State of New Jersey. Access through these properties extends the true possibility for our campers to over 112,250 acres of public land, including the Blair Creek Preserve, Worthington State Forest, Stokes State Forest, High Point State Park, and the Flatbrook-Roy, Walpack, and Hainesville Wildlife Management Areas. The Appalachian Trail runs immediately adjacent to the camp property. The Delaware River is located three miles away.

The camp hosted it's first official Friday the 13th tour on Friday, May 13th, 2011 to great success, so future tours on the special date are almost certainly in the works.

Michael Myers actually inspired the original Friday the 13th, not the other way around. Halloween came out in 1978, Friday the 13th came out in 1980.

They were saying that the Friday the 13th movies inspired Freddy in the Nightmare on Elm Street sequels and that Freddy and Jason have their own fight in Freddy vs. Jason.
