The August 2016 hospitalero training registration has filled

If you've been looking for a way to say thank you for all that the Camino has given you, look no further than American Pilgrims on the Camino and its hospitalero training courses. American Pilgrims' training session later in August in Portland, Oregon has filled but be watching for the next offerings. Go to the Hospitaleros page for complete information on being an hospitalero, the training and other volunteer opportunities.
