Saint James Way

A UNIQUE AND TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE

In recent years, the Camino de Santiago has acquired an important educational dimension, becoming a vast space for learning. It is a formative, vital, and experiential itinerary whose teachings are of great value to students, helping them grow both in their personal and spiritual dimensions across all its different routes.

Walking the Camino de Santiago is an unforgettable adventure and memorable achievement for younger pilgrims. Our Camino de Santiago for Schools tours take them to the glorious UNESCO-listed ancient trails of the Camino, following in the footsteps of medieval pilgrims, giving students a fantastic team challenge and immersive cultural experience to remember.

In order to receive your Pilgrim Certificate in Santiago de Compostela, the group should walk at least the last 100kms of one of the Camino routes, which takes approximately a week, stamping their pilgrim passport along the way. However, we can also organise a shorter 4-night Camino de Santiago break to get a taste for these unique trails.

01. To enjoy an activity where open and international education is promoted.
02. To recover the essence of the Camino and get in touch with the history and the heart of Europe.
03. To understand the universal ethical values: fraternity, hospitality and solidarity.
04. For a different leisure experience with a high experiential and emotional content.
05. To learn the qualities of teamwork: effort, cooperation and leadership.
06. To strengthen ties with educators and colleagues in a unique framework of coexistence.
07. To increase time for oneself: contemplating, reflecting, praying, remembering…

TESTIMONIALS FROM STUDENTS AND EDUCATORS
“A Camino tour has a much deeper impact on students than any other school tour we’ve been associated with.”

Secundary school teacher (Ireland)

“Walking as pilgrims, carrying a backpack, staying in pilgrim hostels, country inns, and monasteries, students travel on foot between 10-15 miles a day. Slowing down to “human speed”, leaving behind the ordinary concerns of daily life, and unplugging from the internet, iPod and cell phone brings rich rewards that are rare in today’s world—the intimacy of prolonged solitude, the beauty of the natural world, the gratitude from many acts of kindness, and the joy of sustained conversation with others in a group and with fellow pilgrims from all over the world.”

12th Grade Academic Advisor (USA)

“Let yourself get carried away. By the Camino. By its people. By nature. By the silence, Do not hurry; you will enjoy yourself much more and much better.You can hurry, if you want, when you get back to your regular life, but why here? Do yourself a favor and forget about it. You will thank yourself”.

Student Affairs Coodinator (Italy)

“The Camino represents a great opportunity to learn about the European continent and immerse oneself in an international ambience. The Camino is especially astounding in the range of nationalities and ages of its participants. Pilgrims flock to walk this great pilgrimage from all corners of the earth”.
