Santa Barbara, California Chapter

The Santa Barbara chapter of American Pilgrims is centered in Santa Barbara, California. 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, walks, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.

  • To offer opportunities for local pilgrims to gather and hold events related to the Camino.
  • To mentor future pilgrims, promote the pilgrimage and American Pilgrims through social gatherings.
  • To serve as a local host for hospitalero training in the Santa Barbara area.

The chapter will be scheduling walks, talks, potlucks and much 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 John Harrison, Helen Mountford and Franc Chacon at SantaBarbara@americanpilgrims.org for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.

The chapter maintains its own independent website which can be found at santabarbara-pilgrims.org. In addition to events, your find all kinds of useful and interesting material. Check us out there!
