Camp Half Blood

Camp Half-Blood combines Greek mythology, story telling, imaginative play and the outdoors to create the kind of summer days children love. If you want to encourage reading, and boost related skills, this is perfect because the campers don’t even realize the mission is all about learning and literacy.

Based on the Percy Jackson series, Camp Half-Blood is a literary summer day camp program that trains kids ages 7-13 to become legendary heroes. Myths come to life, monsters attack and campers rise together. Each week a new story unfolds and campers must train, from swordplay to potion-making, to learn the skills and build the courage they'll need to survive The Quest, a live-action immersive experience that happens every week at camp.

Camp Half-Blood is coming to the Wissahickon Park June 27, 2022 - August 5, 2022. Register here!
