Hospitalero training in August

American Pilgrims has announced the next hospitalero training session: Friday, August 25 through Sunday, August 27, 2017 at the The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos, California in the South Bay area. Many people decide that, after completing the Camino, serving as an hospitalero voluntario is the next logical step. To serve, you must have completed a training course. American Pilgrims offers these courses severe times every year but there are a number of criteria that must be met to take the course. If this sounds right for you, check out the details and access the registration form on the Hospitaleros page!

American Pilgrims Local Chapters

Did you know that there's a good chance that you live close to an American Pilgrims local chapter? Many are surprised to discover that. Local chapters were created to bring the Camino experience closer to home - to help would-be and veteran pilgrims connect with or to stay connected with the Camino. Most chapters offer regular events, such as walks and hikes, informative presentations on packing, Camino first aid, route descriptions and the like, and social get-togethers. Whether you are a past, future or possible peregrino, you ought to check it out. Our Local Chapters page has a map showing locations and links to the individual chapters!
