Memphis Chapter

The Memphis (Tennessee) Chapter of American Pilgrims serves western Tennessee and northeastern Arkansas.

The purpose of local chapters is to keep participants 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 and mentoring future pilgrims.

  • To offer opportunities for local pilgrims to gather and hold events related to the Camino.
  • To mentor future pilgrims, promote the pilgrimage and American Pilgrims through social gatherings.

The chapter schedules walks, talks, potlucks and much more!
