For fans of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, soon to be a series on Disney+, here's an insider's look at what it's like to live at Camp Half-Blood, the training ground for demigods
Can't get enough Percy Jackson, or new to Camp Half-Blood? Either way, this official companion book to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is for you!
Percy and other residents of the camp for demigods share insider information about the divine cabins, the magical landmarks, and the training arenas.
But it's not all about the grounds. Despite what the god Apollo's orientation video claims, campers do not always co-exist in peace and harmony. The camp is not run with superior efficiency. Prophecies do not flow forth with great regularity.
Sprinkled throughout are stories from heroes who have called Camp Half-Blood home or just passed through on their way to places unknown. Chiron himself introduces the book with a brief history of training based on his millennia of experience.
And, of course, there are pearls of wisdom from Apollo himself, because Percy and his friends would prefer not to be struck down, thank you very much.
Get your handbook before the series airs on Disney+ so you can be a camper, too!
