The Camp Half-Blood Forest is a forest surrounding Camp Half-Blood. It is full of monsters, and Capture the Flag is often played in it by the campers on Fridays. Chiron advises campers not to enter unless they are armed or with someone else.
The woods of Camp Half-Blood are very elusive and secretive. Many creatures live in this forest including wood nymphs, tree nymphs, monsters, satyrs, and much more. It is a great place to explore, practice duelings and battling. A Labyrinth entrance used to be there, at Zeus' Fist.
On the last day of camp, Luke Castellan asks Percy Jackson to come into the woods with him to fight some monsters. Percy agrees, but when they were deep enough into the woods, Luke unleashes a poisonous scorpion on Percy. Luke tells Percy all about how he is a minion of Kronos, thinking that Percy wouldn't make it out alive. When the scorpion stung Percy, the dryads to carry him out of the camp's forest and into camp, where campers found him turning gray. He then told Chiron and some close friends about Luke.
In the woods, the Council of Cloven Elders host some of their meetings including the first one found in the book. In the Battle of the Labyrinth, Quintus released three giant poisonous scorpions from some boxes he had ordered without telling the kids what was in the boxes. The scorpions attacked and the campers had to kill them as training. There used to be an entrance to the Labyrinth at Zeus' Fist until Daedalus sacrificed himself to stop Luke's minions. Juniper, the nymph, tree is also in these woods.
In 1864, the Romans charged Camp Half-Blood, and its woods became a fighting ground between the Greek demigods and Roman demigods. It lasted for three days, being the bloodiest conflict in demigod history.
The Grove of Dodona is hidden within the forest. It was created by Rhea.
