HARDWICK, N.J. -- The next Friday the 13th falls in April, which means for a few lucky horror fans Camp Crystal Lake will come alive.
Now you can spend the night at the camp where the legend of Jason Voorhees was unleashed...
Camp Crystal Lake, the fictional location of the 80s horror flick Friday the 13th, is really Warren County’s Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, a camp owned by the Boy Scouts of America and not open to the public.
But that hasn't stopped people from trying to visit.
Camp No-Be staff have acquiesced to the occasional planned visit from movie fans, but only on designated Fridays which also happen to fall on the 13th of the month.
On April 13 and 14 this year, the camp will open again to a group of winners chosen via lottery, based on a form filled out on the camp's website. The April event features special guest Adrienne King, who played the character Alice in Friday the 13th. Tickets start at $135 for the morning tour.
A VIP experience with King for those 21 and over, which includes dinner and breakfast from 3 p.m. to 11 a.m. both days. Tickets will be awarded via auction, according to Crystal Lake Tours.
Winners will be randomly chosen and ticket invitations will be sent via email starting on March 5, according to Crystal Lake Tours website. Winners will have 24 hours to complete their ticket purchase before the invitation expires and is offered to the next randomly chosen name.
The camp, located near the Delaware Water Gap in Hardwick first opened in 1927 and is the oldest continuously run scout camp in New Jersey.
Since horror films don’t fit in with the Boy Scout’s programs at the camp, the group hadn’t allowed movie buffs to visit the Friday the 13th filming location until a few years ago. The first tour was held on Friday, May 13, 2011, with tickets quickly selling out.
