Join us as we hike for more than 300 km across northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago.  This Summer I program allows you to learn about this medieval pilgrimage followed by two weeks of classes and home stay with families in Santiago de Compostela.

Walking to school takes on a whole new meaning.  On the trail, we will hike 10-15 miles daily through the middle ages along the path of the Camino de Santiago. We will stay in pilgrim lodgings with pilgrims from all around the world.  As we walk, each day takes us through the different geographical regions of Spain from the hot Spanish meseta to the refreshing eucalyptus forests of Galicia.  At the end of the day, we’ll sit together around a long table with a warm dinner and share our day’s adventures.
