This also took its toll on the Christys, as the likely loss of the camp bankrupted them, and the murders had upset them emotionally. She apparently succeeds in preventing the reopening of Camp Crystal Lake but loses her own life in the process.
As Jason never drowned, he witnessed his mother's death at the hands of Alice Hardy the only survivor of the of the first massacre, this event marked the beginning of a new and far more deadly streak of murders and terror that would plague the Camp, the town, and the general area for over twenty years or more.
For years starting in 1984, the Camp was closed and forbidden by law for anyone to be there but that didn't stop trespassers like Jeff and Sandra from going there or people dying on the property for years to come, or places near it like Packanack Lodge and Higgins Haven.
These murders could not be covered up nor blamed as an accident, and the Christys shut down the camp indefinately.Pamela was never suspected, and police ruled the homicides of Claudette and Barry unsolved crimes.There were apparently multiple attempts to reopen Camp Crystal Lake throughout the 1960s.It is unknown if the Christys made these attempts or if the camp had changed hands. A series of fires in 1962 prevented the summer debut, as did the discovery of poisoned water in 1966.Although it was never known who was the instigator, the finger of guilt pointed squarely at Pamela Voorhees.
Her sick mind combined with her overprotectiveness of her son had convinced her that the murder of Barry and Claudette was not vengenence served; she had to ensure no one else's child would suffer the same doom as Jason.By living close to the camp, this enabled Pamela to keep a watchful eye on Camp Crystal Lake to ensure it remained unattended. In 1980, a hope to resurrect the failed summer camp came when Steve Christy made another attempt to reopen Camp Crystal Lake.This also fueled local gossip that the camp was jinxed or on cursed ground, and local residents renamed it "Camp Blood". This time, no longer content to simply sabotage, Pamela stalks and kills nearly all of the new camp counselors beginning with a cheerful and spirited young girl named Annie Phillips who was possibly killed off the property in the woods surrounding it.Camp Crystal Lake also known as Camp Forest Green, and, more commonly Camp Blood, was a summer camp for kids in the Friday the 13th film series.Located in or near Sussex County, New Jersey, Camp Crystal Lake was most infamous for being the home of serial killer Jason Voorhees The Camp was established in 1935 by the Christy family.For twenty-two years, Camp Crystal Lake operated peacefully and developed a good reputation until 1957 when Pamela Voorhees was hired as a cook.
