Camp-Half-Blood

Cabins

The Cabins at Camp Half-Blood each represent one of the Greek gods and goddesses. Demigods attending the camp stay in the respective cabins patronized by their immortal parents.


Initially, only twelve cabins were built for the children of the Olympians. Those of other minor gods or unclaimed children of the twelve would reside with the children of Hermes in Cabin Eleven. After the Second Olympian War, Percy Jackson requested that Hades and the minor gods be given their own cabins as well. Now there are twenty cabins at Camp Half-Blood.

Cabin One: Zeus' Cabin

Zeus

Zeus

Zeus' Cabin (#1) is described as a marble building looking like a mausoleum, with heavy columns. The big bronze double doors are polished in such a way to provide a 'holographic' effect of lightning bolts passing across. It also thunders all the time.

Inside: the dome-shaped ceiling is decorated with moving mosaics of a cloudy sky and thunder bolts. A statue of Zeus in a traditional Greek chiton is centered in the room. It has alcoves with golden eagle statues.

Cabin Two: Hera's Cabin

Hera

Hera's Cabin (#2) is a marble, formal-looking building, graceful with slim columns garlanded with pomegranates and flowers. It is done in a similar way to her husband, Zeus' cabin. However, Hera's cabin is more graceful, having slimmer columns with pomegranates and flowers around them. The walls also have images of peacocks carved on them, as well as the doors.

Inside: like a temple with a large statue of Hera in the center. There is no furniture inside due to no one will ever stay in that cabin and is honorary (Hera is the goddess of marriage and "doesn't run around having affairs with mortals. That is her husband's job").

Cabin Three: Poseidon's Cabin

Poseidon

Poseidon

Poseidon's Cabin (#3) is a long, low building with windows facing the ocean. The cabin is made from rough sea stone, pieces of coral and seashell embedded into the outside walls, and a trident with a big bronze number 3 over the door. Percy described its smell of the cabin similar to the cabin at Montauk, where his mother and father met. Percy also states that there is always a good sea breeze blowing through it.

Inside: The walls are made of abalone. There are six neat bunk beds with silk sheets and a salt water fountain given to Percy (until he cut it in half). There is also a sort of mobile of hippocampi or "fish-ponies" as Tyson calls them.

Ares' Cabin (#5) is badly painted red and has a large boar's head over the door with barbed wire on the roof. Annabeth mentioned it did have land mines, but she might have been joking. Rock music is constantly blaring from it.

Cabin Six: Athena's Cabin

Athena

Athena's Cabin (#6) is a gray building with plain white curtains and a design of an owl over the door.

Inside: most of the space is devoted to maps, desks, various projects and weapons, with all the bunks shoved together against one wall, "as if sleep was not important". Percy described it as a "braniac's workshop."

Cabin Seven: Apollo's Cabin

Apollo's Cabin (#7) is made of solid gold and made to glow during the daytime - it's hard to tell if the gold is reflecting light or generating it.

Cabin Eight: Artemis' Cabin

Artemis

Artemis' Cabin (#8) is an all silver building with silver curtains, similar to the outfit of the Hunters. It also glows silver during night time as if reflecting the moon, but looks like a normal cabin in the day. It is decorated with paintings and carvings of wild animals, mostly the stag. Because Artemis doesn't have children of her own and the cabin is honorary; however it is used by the Hunters when they visit camp.

Cabin Nine: Hephaestus' Cabin

Hephaestus

Hephaestus

Hephaestus' Cabin (#9) looks like a small factory, with brick walls and smokestacks like the forges and lots of gears around the entrance.

Inside: Leo describes the folded steel bunks against the walls to be like "high-tech Murphy beds". Each bed has a digital control panel, blinking LED lights, glowing gems, and interlocking gears. It has shiny metal walls and metal slated doors. It is noted for being unclean and messy, filled with junk most of the time. A fire pole comes down from the second floor. A circular staircase leads down into some kind of basement. The walls are lined with every kind of power tool imaginable, and a huge assortment of weaponry. A workbench overflows with scrap metal, screws, bolts, washers, nails, rivets, and a million other machine parts. There is also a tunnel underneath. It is associated with Bunker Nine. The most famous demigod son of Hephaestus was Archimedes.

Cabin Ten: Aphrodite's Cabin

Aphrodite

Aphrodite's Cabin (#10) is a wooden cabin with a painted blue roof, pillars, checkerboard deck with steps and gray walls. It also smells heavily of designer perfume. Piper describes it as "a giant Barbie house where supermodels go to die."

Inside: It is described as a life-size dollhouse with pink walls and white window trim. The lace curtains are pastel blue and green which matched the sheets and feather comforters on all the beds. The guys had one row of bunks separated by a curtain, but their section of the cabin was just as neat and orderly as the girls'. The cabin is always clean except for under the beds, which had chocolate wrappers, love notes, and other things under them. Every camper had a wooden camp chest at the foot of their bunk with their name painted on it. The only other bit of individualism was how the campers had decorated their private bunk spaces. Each had slightly different pictures tacked up of whatever celebrities they thought were hot. A few had personal photos, too, but most were actors or singers.

Cabin Eleven: Hermes' Cabin

Hermes' Cabin (#11) has peeling brown paint and a caduceus over the door. It is probably in such bad shape because it was so over-populated. Once more demigods started getting claimed and the minor gods' cabins were built, space conditions improved.

Cabin Placement

Due to Hestia and Hades' lack of thrones on Olympus, neither had cabins. In addition, after reforms made by Percy Jackson in The Last Olympian, cabins for Hades, Hecate, Nemesis, Iris, Hebe, Nike, Tyche, Hypnos, and many other minor gods were constructed. There are now a total of 20 cabins. Where the first 12 made a U shape with the addition of 8 more cabins it now makes an omega shape. It is said that they are still making cabins for the other gods and goddesses.

CHB cabins

The cabins as shown on the website

  • It should be noted that Hestia, the goddess of the hearth, has a fire pit in the mess hall. Percy sees the goddess on his first day at camp, but doesn't really notice her as he thought she was a nymph.
  • Cabins on the left side are odd numbers and cabins on the right side are even numbers (male odd & female even- Dionysus #12 would be a female cabin, but Hestia gave her throne up for him.).
  • The cabins are in order from where their parent sits on the Olympian council.
  • In the movie version, none of the cabins are in the same position or same form.

Hermes' Acceptance Policy

Hermes' cabin had an acceptance policy stating that any undetermined camper can stay inside. Therefore, Half-bloods whose immortal parent had not claimed them or whose immortal parent is a minor god would stay in the Hermes cabin. Percy briefly stayed in the Hermes cabin.

After the minor cabins were built, it is assumed that the policy then only covered the unclaimed. All new campers stay in the Hermes cabin until they are claimed by their immortal parent.

This was the way until Percy requested that all demigods are claimed before they turn 13 and that the minor gods and Hades' demigods have their own cabin in The Last Olympian.

Trivia

  • Although Percy mentioned a cabin built for Morpheus in The Last Olympian, it is nonexistent according to Rick Riordan's website. Instead, cabins for Nike and Hebe are present.
  • Not all gods have cabins, despite what Percy said in The Last Olympian. However, cabins belonging to the other minor gods have not been built yet.
  • It should be noted that at the end of The Last Olympian, Percy asked for a cabin for Janus to be built at Camp Half-Blood. However, Janus isn't even a Greek god. He is a Roman god.
  • Unlike Camp Half-Blood that assigns demigods based on their godly parent, Camp Jupiter separates demigods (and legacies) into Cohorts normally based on their field of expertise.
  • It is possible that a second ring of cabins will be made, as Percy mentioned that they probably will have to.
