Southern California (Los Angeles) Chapter

The Southern California Chapter of American Pilgrims serves the greater Los Angeles area. 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.

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 Kurt "Carlos" Schroeder, Anita Baroldi, Geoff Davies and Kurt Buckley at [email protected] for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.

To see more about what we're doing and to join the Camino conversation, check out our Facebook page.

To find out what we're up to, consult our Facebook page. And of course you can always contact us through [email protected]!

Throughout the year, the chapter schedules walks, potlucks and other events. For future events check out our Facebook page and be sure that you're on our 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 [email protected] and ask to be connected with a mentor. Experienced Camino walkers and cyclists who would like to serve as mentors should contact us so that 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.
