July is a very hot month in NYC; please take all necessary precautions to avoid sunburn, heatstroke, or dehydration. Please pack water, snacks, and sun protection as befits your needs.

To avoid the extreme heat of midday, we will not be making formal stops along the route. However, public restrooms will be available in the parks along the route. For safety reasons, please walk with a buddy at all times.

Leaders: Jojo and Nery are passionate about sharing the Spirit of the Camino with fellow pilgrims while encouraging future pilgrims in their physical and spiritual journey on the Camino. We hope you can join us to celebrate the Feast of St. James and the Spirit of the Camino.
