Percy Jackson & The Carnival of Celebrations

Postby Activities Director Chiron » Sun Aug 07, 2022 8:00 pm




Hello Campers!

10000 Islands, Balder, The East Pacific, The Order of the Grey Wardens, and The South Pacific are proud to introduce Percy Jackson & The Carnival of Celebrations, a week-long festival dedicated to the original "Percy Jackson & The Olympians" series by Rick Riordan. This has been by far the most requested festival inspiration when producing other events, so it's our hope to do justice to this Greek mythology-inspired series and provide an overall amazing time for all who attend.

As with previous festivals, all players in good standing are welcome to enjoy. Immerse yourself in the world of Greek demigods at Camp Half-Blood as Campers are claimed by their godly parent and join their cabins to compete in camp games, celebrate the arts, and make friends around the campire!

Find endless things to do around Camp Half-Blood from the Camp Half-Blood roleplay, inspire yourself in art/poetry/writing contests, play king-of-the-hill in a nation ejection contest, crank up Chiron's boombox, or make some laughs in Percy's Meme-Off. Don't worry, there's trivia too––loads of it from Percy Jackson trivia all the way to general Greek trivia plus fun games like skribbl.io and more!

Can't wait to see you there - Also Mr. D says to bring snacks!

The Final PJ&CoC Points Update

The sun sets on Camp Half-Blood and the camp finally rests. No more competitions, no more points, no more events. All of the work of the last week has brought you this final scoreboard for PJ&CoC 2022:

Final Scoreboard
1st - Cabin 5 - Ares - 878 points
2nd - Cabin 10 - Aphrodite - 818 points
3rd - Cabin 6 - Athena - 591 points
4th - Cabin 7 - Apollo - 395 points
5th - Cabin 4 - Demeter - 283 points
6th - Cabin 9 - Hephaestus - 190 points
7th - Cabin 11 - Hermes - 169 points

This scoreboard was undoubtedly more dynamic than any other points-based events we've hosted in the past. Cabins leapt from top to bottom within a couple of days, but Cabin 5 prowled throughout the week as Cabins 10 and 6 duked it out for the top. Ultimately, a combo of insane turnouts and some huge large event point wins made Cabin 5 unstoppable

Congratulations to Cabin 5 - Ares for winning the Percy Jackson & the Carnival of Celebrations competition!

We are also happy to present to you our first-ever Camp Half-Blood Necklace with our Year 1 bead design by Liberdon

has to do with the source material;
1, 3 and later on 13 are tied to zeus/poseidon/hades, who had an agreement not to have kids because they're too powerful and cause international incidents. so while they *exist*, they're low-population, which doesn't mesh well with festival groupings
2 is hera, who doesn't have any demigod kids in the series b/c of being associated with marriage i guess?
and 8 is artemis, who has their vow of celibacy thing going on. the cabin exists for any of her huntresses who happen to be visiting
we're also missing cabin 12 for dionysus and like all of the cabins for minor gods that get added later, but it's a pretty safe bet that that's a logistics thing re: not wanting to make each cabin too small
