The overseers of Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco in northwest New Jersey find themselves in a predicament.
They’ve got to monitor large groups of boy scouts who visit the facility for an outdoors-y experience in which they can rack up merit badges and engage in all the usual Boy Scout fare. But No-Be-Bo-Sco must also stay on the lookout for obsessed fans of Friday the 13th who may be tempted to lurk around the site that doubled as Camp Crystal Lake for the franchise’s first installment.
Normally, No-Be-Bo-Sco staffers kick those people right the hell off the premises. Otherwise — best case scenario — they risk having to tell angry suburban parents why and how their kids were traumatized by grown men in plastic hockey masks debating whether Jason killed Muffin the dog in Part 2.
Luckily, No-Be-Bo-Sco has made arrangements so horror fans can visit the grounds without ruining any campers’ fragile eggshell minds. The organization has historically hosted tours now and again, but always on Friday the 13th. And this upcoming April 13th and 14th, they’re going all-in with tours and a potentially one-time-only chance for Jason aficionados to stay overnight.
Plus they got Adrienne King — noted as the final girl in Part 1 and, uh, (spoiler alert) not the final girl in Part 2 — dropping by to do the celebrity guest thing.
Anyone willing to trek over to New Jersey for this can sign up for a lottery that remains open until midnight on March 5. Apparently No-Be-Bo-Sco is expecting pretty intense demand, as tickets can cost as much as $175 each. That sounds like a lot for what’s essentially a walking tour of a Boy Scout camp, but eh, you can blast through that much money in a few hours at a typical horror convention without even trying.
Meanwhile, let’s not hold our breaths for a chance to tour the site of Part 2 with Amy Steel, ‘cos Camp Kentmont looks pretty intent on distancing itself as far possible from its association with Jason Voorhees.
