Hoosier (Indianapolis, Indiana) Chapter

The Hoosier Chapter of American Pilgrims covers the state of Indiana but is centered on Indianapolis. (Those of you in the northern part of the state have a choice as there is also is a chapter in Chicago.) Broadly stated, the purpose of this local chapter is to keep members connected to the Camino and to introduce new people to the phenomenon. We plan to accomplish this in a number of ways, such as social events, hikes, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.

The chapter will be scheduling local hikes, talks, potlucks, a lending library of Camino related books, and more! These will be listed here but you may also want to check the Local Events page for other events that may be of interest. Contact chapter coordinators Janet Schwind and David Cook at Hoosier@americanpilgrims.org for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list. 

Anyone living in northern Indiana who is interested in being on the chapter's e-mail list should contact us at Hoosier@americanpilgrims.org. Please include your first and last name and your ZIP-code.

Many peregrinos maintain blogs or online records before, during or after their Camino. We will happily list any submitted to us—just contact us with the details.

Chapter coordinator David Cook created a nice video of his 2012 Camino from León to Santiago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U2bSJRYyMo

If you would, we would love you to fill out a brief online survey, por favor, so that we can gather your info to add to our Big Brother Mega-Database to help us communicate with you in a way that’s more meaningful to you and to help shape future events of Hoosiers on the Camino. That survey can be found here: surveymonkey.com/s/R89DWZN
