Old Pueblo (Tucson, Arizona) Chapter

The Old Pueblo Chapter of American Pilgrims is centered in Tucson, Arizona. This chapter covers the southern area of the state including Green Valley, Marana, Oro Valley, Corona de Tucson and Vail. The purposes of this chapter are:

  • To support the goals of American Pilgrims on the Camino
  • To encourage membership in the parent organization
  • To provide opportunities for pilgrims, past, present and future to gather and to hold events related to and promoting the Camino de Santiago
  • To mentor future pilgrims
  • To hopefully serve as a local host for hospitalero training in the southern Arizona

The chapter will be hosting hikes, guest speakers, member presentations, pilgrim mentoring sessions, basic Spanish lessons for use on the Camino, potluck lunches/dinners, wine tastings and much more! These will be listed here but you may also check the Local Events page for other events that may be of interest. Contact chapter coordinators Sharon Fields and Dave Combs at [email protected] for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.
