Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco has been a premier site for Boy Scout camping for over seventy five years. No-Be has been known by Scouts and Scouters for its beauty and signature mountain view for over 85 years. 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 Boy Scout Troop.
