WELCOME HEROES Monsters can be found everywhere, if you know where to look and what you're looking for. Your teacher, the guy stacking apples at the supermarket, even the librarian could be a monster. As a demi-god it is imperative that you train and learn to become a great hero. Because monsters and heroes can be found all over the world Camp Half-Blood has expanded. They have created auxiliary camps in Asia, Europe, and here in California. Let your mortal parents know that you don't want to leave your well-being to chance, that you need to train at Camp Half-Blood - West Coast this summer. Campers should bring a daily lunch and snack, except for Friday when lunch is provided. Please advise us of any food allergies.

TRAINING

During their time at Camp Half-Blood campers will train in a variety of ways to prepare themselves in case monsters attack or they are given a quest.
STRATEGY Athena always has a plan. What strategy will you choose to defeat the other team (or monsters, should they arise). Strategy, techniques, stealth and new friends will help you win the day.
ARCHERY A son or daughter of Apollo will train campers in the art of archery. Sharpen your skills and compete in the Apollo Archery Competition.
SWORD-FIGHTING Learn to use your sword (boffer) and shield effectively during training. It pays to be prepared. First, however, you'll need to forge your own weapon.
CAPTURE THE FLAG Put your training to the test when the time comes. Your team of heroes will play against the opposing team for the gods' favor. This will prove to be a highlight of your time at Camp Half-Blood.

ACTIVITIES

PROTECTION You'll create your own Amulet of Protection and protective talismans to give you that extra edge in battle.
MAGICAL WEAPONS You will have an opportunity throughout the week to earn “magical weapons” for your Capture the Flag team. Those Hermes wings or the Cloak of Darkness just might be the difference in the game!
LOTUS CASINO A test of Heroes - We'll by stopping by the Lotus Casino to play some games and eat some treats! Just don’t end up trapped for centuries…
SKILLS TEST Monster assaults, Greek speak, logic puzzles and many games and challenges are sure to test your wit and skills. Don't be surprised if Gelos (the god of laughter) takes hold of you during these fun and exciting competitions.
DAILY QUESTS From searching for Pan (you'll be given a temporary Searcher's license by the satyrs) to locating Poseidon's Pearls, from battling Medusa to gathering the ingredients for Ambrosia, each day will hold a different quest (or two).
...MUCH MORE We cannot possibly cover all the wonderful and exciting activities that happen during a camper's week at Camp Half-Blood. With the list we provided above, you get the idea. We will head over to Angel Island on one of the days, and we will end the week with a Hero's Feast.
What should students bring to Camp Half-Blood? Each day (except for Friday) everyone should bring a lunch. On Thursday we will be going on a trip to Angel Island. On that day students should bring sunscreen and water as well as their lunch. Other than that, everything they need will be at Camp Half-Blood. However, if campers want to tip the camp staff with gold drachmas, we won't protest.

A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE FOR READERS AND ADVENTURERS

Our goal with this camp is to bring the pages of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series to life in an enjoyable and fun-loving way. We know that a good book can lead to a lifetime of reading. Often in our camps we will get campers who have only seen the movies. After camp they are eager to read the books because at camp they talked with another camper about how good the books are, or they participated in a camp activity that was created around something that happened in a book but not on the screen (even though we are fans of the movies as well). Having trouble registering? Contact the Camp Director, Cornelia Busse-Geagan at cbussegeagan@theranchtoday.org or the Camp Supervisor, Tina Morales at tmorales@theranchtoday.org
