Camino Nova Scotia: The Way of St. Columba
An AST summer pilgrimage June 28 – July 6, 2014
(Please note date has changed from June 29 to June 28)
Ever wonder what a pilgrimage is all about?
Looking for a very different kind of vacation?
Need to give your life a good spiritual and physical shake-up?
Want to connect with other spiritual seekers using the most ancient, low-tech, zero-emission method of transportation?
Camino NS: The Way of St. Columba is a pilgrimage opportunity that will take place along the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia. Inspired by the ancient Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain, Camino NS will take you deeper: into yourself, into nature, into community, into God.
Location: Nova Scotia’s South Shore, concluding at the Chapel of St. Columba in Halifax (on the AST campus)
How far? Our total pilgrimage route will take us approx. 200-250 km along the beautiful Atlantic coastline, through majestic woodlands, beside sparkling lakes and gorgeous beaches, and near farmers’ fields. The path is almost completely level.
Who is this for? Camino NS is for you if you are:
- 18 years or older
- ready for an adventure
- seeking a spiritual pathway in life
- part of a faith community, or not: either is fine
- reasonably fit and healthy (but you don’t need to be an athlete)
Where will we stay? We will be sleeping in churches and community centres with electricity, running water, and restrooms.
Cost: $925 ($750 for full time students/unwaged); early bird discount is available.
Includes transfer from Halifax, guides, accommodation, and all meals.
Academic credit: Course credit is available through Atlantic School of Theology.
