Join us at the Alpine Shop in Kirkwood, MO, for a Gear Gathering as we discuss the best and newest gear for making a Camino or other pilgrimage. We will also talk about water bottles/hydration systems, what to pack, what not to pack, and Camino packing hacks.

Come as early as you would like to browse the store, try on hiking shoes, check out gear, and visit. The Alpine Shop has three store employees who have walked the Camino plus other gear experts available to assist us. There will be time after the presentation to visit and shop. You may bring your backpack for a “fit check”.

Experienced Camino pilgrims: Please bring a favorite item you brought on your pilgrimage — backpack, shoes, socks, sleeping bag, or whatever you loved having with you on Camino. Each pilgrim will have one minute to share what they love about their item.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this gathering; those who have walked the Camino de Santiago or another pilgrimage, those who plan to go on Camino soon, those who would like to go on a Camino someday, and those who just like to check out cool gear and hang out with fun people.

Please RSVP to let us know if you plan to attend so we have enough seating for everyone.
