St. Louis, Missouri Chapter

The St. Louis Chapter of American Pilgrims covers the general area of St. Louis including east-cental Missouri and west-central Illinois. 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 coordinator Pam Klekner and Geri Boyer at for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.

Are you interested in learning more about the Camino?
If you are thinking of walking the Camino and are interested in learning more, we can pair you with an experienced pilgrim who can answer your questions on how to prepare and what to expect. Just email us at and ask to be connected with a mentor. 

Also you can visit American Pilgrims on the Camino via Facebook for great dialogue, photos, and a running commentary about the Camino from like-minded pilgrims.
