InterVarsity Study Abroad invites you to experience one of the oldest pilgrimage routes in Europe—the Camino de Santiago—by stepping out your own front door.
Take your first steps toward Santiago...
Traditionally, a peregrino (Spanish for pilgrim) would begin their journey to Santiago from their front door, eventually converging with one of several ancient pathways in northern Spain. On a Digital Camino, you can join the tradition via five audio-guided walks done on your own, accompanied by times of fun & reflection with fellow peregrinos.
The 5-day Holy Week Camino will take place from March 28th through April 2nd. This includes 5 Camino-themed walks that can be scheduled any time during the day, alone or in groups. There will be an orientation, audio guides, and an online community.
5 WALKS: Connect with God
During the Holy Week Camino you will do one walk per day. We recommend setting aside 1-hour for each walk and time to reflect. Each audio-guided walk explores a Camino theme using a psalm, poem, scripture reflection, and prayer, plus a video blessing and a companion PDF journal for deeper reflection. Arising directly from the Camino de Santiago in Spain, the themes are:
Walk 1: Simplicity
Walk 2: Presence
Walk 3: Hospitality & Gratitude
Walk 4: Perseverance
Walk 5: A Way of Life
DEBRIEF GROUPS: Process the Experience
Participants are encouraged to gather into small groups after each walk to interpret what God showed you and discern what he is inviting you to do next.
GROUP EVENTS: Albergue Lounge
One of the many beautiful aspects of the Camino de Santiago is the opportunity to have meaningful interaction with fellow peregrinos you meet along the journey. The Albergue Lounge is designed to give Digital Camino participants an opportunity to experience this gift, despite not sharing the same physical space.
SOCIAL SHARING: Be Part of Something Bigger
You will receive an invitation to use the Mighty Networks app and website. This social media tool is the hub of all our communication, audio guides and other resources. It also enables you to share pictures, reflections, and words from God with your fellow peregrinos.
