The American Pilgrims on the Camino Chapter discusses new topics every month including such topics as: Camino 101, volunteering on the Camino, the Portuguese Way, and other great Camino experiences. The local chapter focuses on keeping its members connected to the Camino and introducing new people to the phenomenon. This is accomplished by hosting social events, walks, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims. Check the notes below for this month's presentation content.
