It's known for being the birthplace of a horror franchise, but decades after it was the setting for the first Friday the 13th movie, the New Jersey camp where Mrs. Voorhees once worked has now become the Boy Scout hub known as No-Be-Bo-Sco. Usually not open to the public, Crystal Lake Tours will open up the camp's cozy, spooky confines to Friday the 13th fans for special tours featuring the original film's star Adrienne King, with a lucky select group even getting the chance to spend the night!

Crystal Lake Tours' Friday the 13th experiences will fittingly place on Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th. Since there is limited space, the attendees for the regular tours will be selected via an online lottery system here, while those interested in spending the night can place a bid for a VIP ticket here.

Entries for the online lottery close on March 5th, while VIP ticket bids can be placed up to February 27th. Read on for more details, and visit Crystal Lake Tours' website for additional information. Would you be interested in spending a night at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, or would you fear that you would hear the killer sounds of "ki ki ki, ma ma ma"?

"We’re happy to announce several tour opportunities that will take place over the weekend of Friday, April 13th, 2018 with a very special guest – Adrienne King!
