This summer a mysterious glowing symbol will appear above your head that will confirm what you’ve always secretly known – you are the child of a Greek god. Join other half-bloods at the Wilton library for a summer camp like no other! Based on the acclaimed children’s series Percy Jackson and the Olympians written by Rick Riordan, this day camp will include all the training a growing half-blood needs to survive ancient Greek monsters in our modern world. You’ll be claimed by a Greek god, solve a prophecy foretold by the Oracle of Delphi, make your way through the Labyrinth, and much more! This program is a fundraiser for the Children’s Library. Registration in person. Payment must be made at time of registration. $55.00 per child. For children going into Grades 3 thru 6.
