The Central Ohio Chapter of American Pilgrims covers the middle of Ohio, centered on Columbus.

Broadly stated, the purpose of the 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, hikes, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.

The chapter will be scheduling local hikes, talks, potlucks, a lending library of Camino related books, and 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 Greg Madsen and Art Sullivan via email for more information or to be added to our chapter email list.
