If you're a die-hard Friday the 13th fan, this may be a potential dream come true for you. Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, an active Boy Scouts camp located in New Jersey, is the actual camp that was used in the original Friday the 13th as Camp Crystal Lake. On occasion, the camp offers fans the chance to take tours on an actual Friday the 13th, which is, in itself, pretty cool. However, this April, they're giving fans the chance to camp overnight at the real-life Camp Crystal Lake for the first time ever.
The catch is, there's a very high-demand for an experience such as this. To make the experience of staying the night at the place where Friday the 13th was filmed even more appealing, Adrienne King, one of the stars of the movie, will be on hand at the event. So, how does one get the chance to stay overnight at the place where Jason Voorhees has taken out near countless teenagers with his machete? You have to bid on it. Here's the info on how the process will work, courtesy of the folks at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco.
"In addition to the regular tours, there will be two VIP experiences available via a ticket auction. A limited number of VIP guests will take the regular tour and then continue on an overnight experience at the camp with some exclusive morning activities with our special guest. This will truly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for hardcore F13 fans. To learn more, please browse to our VIP page and place your bid for a VIP ticket by 11:59PM EST on February, 27th, 2018. Ticket invitations will be sent to winning bidders after the bidding closes. You'll have 24 hours to complete your ticket purchase before the invitation expires and is offered to the next winning bidder."
On Friday, April 13th, there will be a morning tour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $135. On both Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th, there will be an afternoon tour from 3 to 10 p.m. for $175 and the VIP experience, which goes from 3 p.m. to 11 a.m. the next day and includes dinner and breakfast. The regular tours will be awarded to interested fans via a lottery, given the high-demand.
"In order to relieve the stress of the ticketing process for our fans, we will be moving to a simple lottery system for these tours. For a chance at a ticket, please browse to the tickets page and complete the entry form. Names will be randomly chosen and ticket invitations will be sent via email starting on March 5th, 2018. If your name is selected, you'll have 24 hours to complete your ticket purchase before the invitation expires and is offered to the next randomly chosen name."
Those who want to take part in the VIP experience need to be at least 21-years-old. Since it doesn't look like we're getting a new Friday the 13th movie anytime soon, this could be something great to help hardcore fans fill the void. If you want in, you'd better get in fast, as the available spots will fill up. You can sign up to get tickets at the official Crystal Lake Tours website.
