4. If you have other commitments that will prevent you from being at camp for the full schedule, whether it is for hours a day or missing whole days, please do not apply to be a Junior Counselor. This is a full-week commitment.
5. If you are new to the Imaginorium, you must get a youth background check before the program begins.

Mythical Name *
What do you want to be called at the Imaginorium Camp Half-blood? Since this is a new magical world from our Wizard Academy, our staff are welcome to create new magical characters or to keep character names that are similar to or the same as the ones you use at Wizard Academy, but it can be difficult for returning campers to remember if your magical name is too different. Junior Counselors usually have simple and easy nicknames. Examples are Weasel, Ginky, and BabyHorse. Try to think of a name that reflects your personality or the persona you will adopt for Camp Half-blood. DO NOT CHOOSE THE NAME OF A CHARACTER FROM THE BOOKS! If you do not choose a name, I will work with your parents to choose one for you. You have been warned.
Your answer
Non-human?
Will your character at Camp Half-blood be one of the following non-humans? Some costuming help might be provided, but on the most part you provide your own costume. No Gods, Goddesses, or monsters, please (though all of the staff will be enacting monsters in some way during the Mythic Monster Hunt... also, since Tyson is a good Cyclops, we're going with them as being either good guys or monsters). If you are unsure, you can check ones you are thinking about and/or write ideas in the comment section. This is also not required... you can be a demi-god/human. But it could be fun.
T-shirt size *
All volunteers will receive a free Imaginorium Camp Half-blood T-shirt, an essential part of the Camp Half-blood experience. These are standard adult sizes. If you need a different size (smaller or larger), please list under "other."
Extra T-shirt
Some families like to order an extra T-shirt, for younger siblings or parents or so the student can wear it more often without having to wash. Students and staff will only receive one free T-shirt, and we will be encouraging them to wear the shirts all week. Extra shirts are $10 each. Please list the size and quantity.
