Kansas City, Missouri Chapter

The Kansas City Chapter of American Pilgrims serves the metropolitan Kansas City area, including Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas. 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 Kim Callow and Dana Ballentine at KansasCity@americanpilgrims.org for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.
