Preparing for the Camino de Santiago

Feb. 23rd

Have you ever thought about following the Way of Saint James? The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage to the cathedral of Santiago de Compestela in Galicia in northwestern Spain. Every year, throngs of Americans join this trek that starts in either France or northern Spain, walking hundreds of miles and enjoying the company of people from around the world.

The Tampa Bay chapter of the American Pilgrims on the Camino will hold a Boots to Backpacks event at the Bill Jackson Shop for Adventure at 2 pm on Feb. 23. Former pilgrims will discuss daily life on the Camino, routes, expenses, as well has what gear will get you ready for this trek.

Call the Camping Dept. (727-576-4169) or email us (camping@billjacksons.com) to register for this free event.
