North Texas Chapter

The North Texas Chapter of American Pilgrims serves the greater Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan Area and the surrounding region. 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 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 Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan 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 Calendar for other events that may be of interest. Contact chapter coordinators Linda Loughry and Joe Zarcaro at [email protected] for more information.

Are you interested in learning more about the Camino?
The North Texas Chapter Camino Mentor Program can pair individuals who have questions about their upcoming Camino with a nearby veteran. Contact [email protected] for details. Experienced Camino walkers and cyclists who would like to serve as mentors should contact us so you can be added to our resource list. Potential mentors should provide us with your name, ZIP code and a brief rundown of your experience, including walking or cycling, which route and when. Also, you can visit American Pilgrims on the Camino on Facebook for great dialogue, photos and a running commentary about the Camino from like-minded pilgrims.
