Welcome to Camp Half-Blood, a state-of-the-art training facility for young demigods. If you are a young hero aspiring to make use of the facility and train yourself for the outside world, this is your lucky day! Please proceed to the Big House, where you may immediately sign yourself up for camp (year-round or summer-only) by writing your own detailed description of you, also known as your profile. You will then be placed in a cabin based on your profile, which should include physical features, attributes, hobbies, talents, or personality similar to that of your immortal parent. Each cabin is dedicated to one of the twelve Olympians, and houses the sons and daughters of that god.
Once you have been placed in your appropriate cabin, you may feel free to stay as long as you like, though you must leave when you reach adulthood at age twenty-one. Until then, you are free to live here and enjoy growing up with fellow half-bloods. You can train in the arena, go canoeing or swimming in the lake, play capture the flag in the woods, or socialize with your friends (aka your relatives) in the cabins or the courtyard. You are also able to go "home" and live with your mortal parent, but it is mandatory for you to come back to camp in the summer. Have fun, and try not to get killed!
Sincerely,Mr. D., Camp Director

THANKS FOR VISITORS SINCE 04/18/2008!!!
Years after Percy Jackson and his friends Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood saved the world, Camp Half-Blood is at peace again. The borders are tightly secured once more, and there have been no attacks in years. Chiron has had a cabin built for Hades, whose children are now happily making a home at camp.
Mr. D is free to leave Camp Half-Blood once every month, and often visits Mount Olympus on these vacations, where it is pretty peaceful once again. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades have agreed that they can have more children, as long as they are sent here at the age of seven. Hera has decided it can't hurt for her to play Zeus's game, and has given birth to many offspring that resemble her dream of an ideal, perfect family.
Someone even convinced Artemis that not all men are bad, and she is now allowing her Hunters to stay at camp to live a semi-normal life, if they wish. Rumor even has it that Artemis may be going sweet on a mortal man, for the first time ever.
Although peace prevails, there is a mysterious, dangerous new prophecy unfolding. It involves four strong friends and their quest to find righteousness in a plot more sinister and complicated than even the Titan lord Kronos could dream up. Although the quest hints at almost certain death for all four demigods, hope, faith, and courage may bring them out of the underworld. War looms over the future, war that would involve not only the immortal and the half-bloods, but also the mortal, who have no idea what is really going on behind the Mist.

Hey everyone, this is Rachel again, since Rihannon is at camp (not Camp Half-Blood). The Camper Sweep was a complete disaster - only a handful of people posted: Rihannon, Rachel, Sam, Lily (who is leaving us), and Leo, so I guess we will be deleting everyone else who didn't post. Remember, though, you can REJOIN if you were deleted. All you have to do is post your profile once again at the Big House, including your cabin, though, and we'll add you as soon as we can.
As for updates, we don't really have any, other than Rihannon is still gone. I will be updating the Camper List, and deleting everyone. So to the few campers that we have left, thanks for sticking with us, and have a great rest of the summer!

Hey everyone. Hope you guys are having an awesome summer, with the three to four weeks of it that we have left. Also keep in mind that as soon as summer is over, you will not be required to check back here every two weeks (not that anyone has been).
As Rihannon has mentioned, I've added some relatively new stuff to the site. There are blurbs on each of the cabin's pages, describing what they look like, inside and outside, plus some other cool new things, like the library in Athena, or the garden in Demeter. If you have more ideas, please post them. There is also a list and description of each cabin member in each of the cabins, so you remember which fellow campers are staying where.
There is also a blurb for the Big House, and now you are free to visit the Attic and the Oracle anytime you want, and "ask away". Who knows, maybe you'll get a quest. However, you will not get a quest if you just go up to the Oracle and say, "Can I have a quest?".
Also, please welcome Martela Louis to the Artemis Cabin. There are also some new visitors around here who are going to join soon.
Finally, Rihannon is gone from August 3rd to August 16th so I will be taking over the site until she gets back. Have a great summer!

Holy crap! We haven't updated in... FOREVER!!! Oh, my gods!
I'll calm down now. Welcome to... everybody who has joined in this past month. Thanks to all who have stayed active! The Camper Sweep is going on right now. Please post there before the 28th of July to avoid being deleted.
Rachel added some blurbs for each of the cabins and there is now an attic for the oracle... approach and ask away... and we could add some music to this site... *evil laugh* Rachel: Rihannon, don't. We're going to scare them all away. Calm down...
Rachel is gone from the 8th to the 19th, so I (Rihannon) will take over for her until she comes back. I just remembered the password, actually, so I will try and update more now! Have a great day!
