In his role as assistant to the regional “monstrologist” for Camp Half-Blood in Austin, Moisés Chiullán spends his time leading daily quests for 9- to 18-year-old demigods. The camp is based in mythological world familiar to fans of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books. In addition to the quests, there’s Roman hand-to-hand combat training, arts and crafts, music and more. All activities are entirely online, but Chiullán works in the field, protected by a mask that keeps him cool in the summer heat, while disguising, or sometimes enhancing, his role in whatever quests he and his colleagues have in store for the campers. The last session of Camp Half-Blood for this summer begins Aug. 3, with places still available.
