Atlanta, Georgia Chapter

The Atlanta, Georgia Chapter of American Pilgrims serves northern Georgia and is centered on Atlanta. The purpose of local chapters 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 venue 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 Atlanta 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 and Regional Events page for other events that may be of interest. Contact chapter coordinators Jim Martin, Susan Corwin and Mike Smith at [email protected] for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.

The Atlanta Chapter invites you to join us for a walk about 5 miles around the whole base of Stone Mountain through woods and streams, including beautiful stretches along lakes with Mountain views. The hike will use connecting trails, part of the Nature Trail, but mainly the Cherokee Trail.
