NNJC Weekend Camping

The Northern New Jersey Council makes five of its properties available for Short-term camping to Packs, Troops, and Crews from the Northern New Jersey
Council and other area Councils.  Short-term camping opportunities at our five properties generally are available September through June, with a few exceptions. 

Attention: Due to construction on the Susquehanna-Roseland Transmission Project, No-Be-Bo-Sco will be closed for weekend camping October 1st 2013-June 1st 2014. We regret the inconvenience but recommend you consider one of our other camps. Information on the project may be found at .
