Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco ( NOrth BErgen BOy SCOuts), located at 11 Sand Pond Rd, Hardwick, NJ, 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 campers to enjoy 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.

The camp has also been as a launching point for canoe trips on the Delaware River, and other lakes within the northwestern New Jersey and northeastern Pennsylvania area, as well as rock-climbing activities within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Aside from Sand Pond, at least four other lakes are within day-hiking distance of the camp. The camp is also a very short drive from Swartswood State Park, White Lake Wildlife Management Area, and Jenny Jump State Forest.

Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco operates a summer camp as well as each weekend throughout the remainder of the year.
