Hospitaler@ Training

Date: May 19 – 21, 2023

Halifax, NS



 Thank you for your interest in training to be a hospitaler@.  We guarantee that it will be a weekend of fun, learning, and reinforcement of all those things you learned and felt on the Camino.  Some folks will be coming from out of town and will require accommodation.  If you have room to billet a single or couple, please indicate below. You can have great fun reliving the Camino! The organizers are asking that you be interested in serving in 2023 or 2024.


Please complete this form and return it with a cheque for $125.00 or your donativo (what you feel you can afford) payable to Tom Friesen, 1403 – 22 Picton Street, London, ON N6B 3R5 (or return by email and send the cheque separately). If you have any questions, please email Tom.  Any money left after the expenses for the weekend will be donated Miraz, which the Confraternity of Saint James in London has purchased and has been running for twenty years and to the Hospitaleros Voluntarios which operates many albergues on the Camino.

Will you require billeting for the Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights?


Can you provide billeting for the Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights?


Any food restrictions we should be aware of?


When did you walk/cycle the Camino?   Month and year(s) please.


Why do you want to be a hospitalero?


Are you prepared to volunteer for 15 days in 2010? (The Federation assigns volunteers from the 1st to the 15thof the month of the 16th to 30th/31st . You should show up a day early to “learn the ropes” and for a smooth transition at the albergue.)
