Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco

Scouts BSA Resident Camp

Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco has been a premier site for Scouts BSA camping for over ninty years. No-Be has been known by Scouts and Scouters for its beauty and signature mountain views. With easy access to the Delaware River and other local attractions, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco is perfectly located to offer a well-rounded challenge second to none for any Scouts BSA Troop. And with horseback riding and newly designed mountain biking trails, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco offers a great program for scouts of all ages.

If a Scout cannot attend with their own Troop, they can camp on their own “provisionally.” Even if this is their first year or sixth, they will always find excitement at Camp!
