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 that opened in 1927. In 1979, a small, low budget horror film was shot there. You might have heard of it. It was called Friday the 13th. Yes, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco is also known as Camp Crystal Lake!
The camp is currently closed to the public, but has been hosting semi-regular fan tours since 2011. The tours have been a big success and the proceeds help keep the camp open and maintained. Their next big event is coming soon and it’s celebrating a big milestone. A 40th milestone, actually. Yes, next month marks 40 years since the filming commenced on the original Friday the 13th (1980).
Read on for all the details!
Celebrating 40 Years Of ‘Friday the 13th’
The next Camp Crystal Lake tours are scheduled for Friday, September 13 2019 and Saturday, September 14, 2019. They are sold out, unfortunately, but the milestone is worth noting. It’s hard to believe it’s been 40 years since Friday the 13th started filming!
We’re hoping to attend this event in person (keep your fingers crossed) despite it being sold out. It involves working a little magic behind the scenes. We’ll try to bring you all the news for this 40th anniversary tour, regardless. This tour features the following special guests:
- Adrienne King (Alice)
- Jeannine Taylor (Marcie)
- Robbi Morgan (Annie)
- Ron Millkie (Officer Dorf)
- Harry Manfredini (composer)
Adrienne King must be taking a break from filming 13 Fanboy. Great news for the fanboys attending this event! The tours run from 9am to 10pm each day, so it sounds like they have a full agenda.
It may be too late for you to join in on this one, but here’s the link to sign up for the ticket lottery for a future tour!
Talk about a bucket list item! I would love to get a tour of Camp Crystal Lake. It’s about a 15 hour drive for me. Worth it, though, right?
We’re excited about the milestone and we’ll do our best to bring you full coverage of the event. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available!
