Welcome to Camp Lewis!



Camp Lewis is a 188-acre property that has been serving the scouting community for 75 years. Maintained by the Northern New Jersey Council it is located in the Skylands region of New Jersey, adjacent to Farny State Park and the Split Rock Reservoir.

Camp Lewis hosts several NNJC programs, including: Cub Scout Overnight Camp, a Nationally Accredited short-term camping experience designed to introduce Cubs and their parents to summertime camping; the Council's Learning for Life camp, which works with the Newark Extended Day Program; as well as numerous training opportunities.

Our program includes nature hikes, fishing, swimming, archery, BB's, STEAM activities and much more. Come relax and enjoy these great experiences. 

Some of Camp Lewis' amenities include; three delicious meals from our Chef, hot running water for your showers, flush toilets and tents with cots. Why not come spend some precious time with your children, before that time is gone

Camp Lewis is a family, as with any family we care about your health and safety.  Somethings that we have already implemented as we await further guidance from the CDC is hand sanitizing stations throughout the camp and at every program area. Smaller groups traveling throughout the camp. Camp sites will be moving throughout the camp together to help keep a social distance and limit exposure. We have changed our normal dining operations from family style to service style. There is now multiple dining times to help achieve a social distance at the dining hall. We are also going to sanitize all areas of camp several times of day. Upon, check in we will be monitoring temperatures. We are not allowing visitors into camp this year.
