Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco is a thriving Scout camp tucked away in the hills of northwestern New Jersey. The camp opened in 1927, making it the oldest continuously operating Scout camp in New Jersey. Since then, countless Scouts have made the trip to No-Be and forged memories to last a lifetime. “No-Be-Bo-Sco” stands for NOrth BErgen BOy SCOuts.
Situated alongside the Kittatinny Ridge, the camp is actively used by the Scouting community of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and beyond. Our 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 during the summer camp season and is also a very popular camping destination for Scout troops 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 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.
