In preparation for helping out in Spain for the Holy Year 2021, we are training more volunteers.
Calgary will host another Hospitalero Training Course on April 24 - 25 - 26, 2020. So, if you are interested in volunteering on the Camino de Santiago, this course is for you! It is comprehensive and fun and it is required by the Spanish Federation of the Friends of the Camino to be placed as a volunteer in their hostels. Criteria for course acceptance are that you must already have been a pilgrim and stayed in volunteer run hostels supported by donations.
To enhance the learning experience, registration is limited to 16 people.
If you do not live in Calgary you can be billeted by former pilgrims in their home.
Complete the registration form and don't miss out!
