Meals are held here, in a beautiful outside courtyard overlooking the sea. There is no shortage of food. The cups always fill with your favorite drink. Campers sit with their cabins, and important announcements are often made after meals. Don't ask about that huge crack in the floor, though . Nico di Angelo is still embarrassed about that.

Fireworks are a Fourth of July tradition at Camp Half-Blood, and that night is one of the high points of the summer for most campers. It is the time when many older campers ask dates to share their picnic blanket. The beach is also where some deep water training exercises occur, and occasionally the random sea god can be found fishing on the shore.
Without a doubt, the woods are the most dangerous and mysterious part of camp. They seem to go on forever, and hold many secrets not even the most experienced demigods know about. The woods are infested with monsters, so don't go in alone, or unarmed!
Learning to ride the pegasi can take years of practice, but it's a skill no demigod should be without . Lessons range from beginner to advanced, and demigods hardly ever fall off .
Even centaurs have to pay the bills! Thanks to the children of Dionysus and the satyrs' nature magic, the strawberry fields at camp produce beautiful fruit year-round, which the camp sells the restaurants in the New York area. This allows Chiron enough operating expenses to run the camp. Hey, arrows and swords aren't cheap.
Each cabin has it's own stash of weapons, but the camp armory has by far the biggest collection of magic armor, swords, and other implements of warfare. One-stop-shopping for all your camping needs, you should definitely get fitted with some gear before your first day of activities.
Sword fighting classes are held here, along with challenges. Duels are not usually to do the death - at least, not on purpose.
Why accept store-bought swords and magic spears when you can make your own? The Forge is the second home for children of Hephaestus, but any camper is welcome to use it to make their own weapons. If you like working in extremely hot conditions with heavy machinery and dangerous molten metal, the forge is for you!
Camp headquarters, where Chiron and Mr. D have their apartments, and where all war councils are held for the senior counselors. Argus, the many-eyes security chief, also lives here, and the infirmary is constantly busy tended to demigods who have been wounded in duels or training activities. Previously, the oracle lived in the attic, though that has now changed.
The highest hill on the camp's perimeter, Half-Blood Hill is topped with a single tall pine that once held the spirit of Thalia Grace. Now, the Golden Fleece glitters in its branches, protecting the camp's magical borders from invasion. The Fleece is protected by a large purple dragon named Peleus.
You gotta do what you gotta do.
A great place to paddle a boat, or flirt with naiads, or have a battle between Greek war triremes. Relaxing!
Campers are encouraged to make their own projects, are we're not just talking lanyards. How'd you like to go home at the end of the summer with your very own marble statue of Poseidon, or perhaps a handmade lyre to serenade your friends?
Nightly sing-alongs are held here, along with other gatherings like the end-of-camp ceremony and occasionally shroud burnings when demigods don't come back alive. The campfire is enchanted so its color reflects the mood of the crowd.
