The help and preparation that we received from the CSJ prior to embarking on our first Camino was truly invaluable.

Our Charitable Aims

The CSJ UK exists to provide a community for Camino pilgrims in the UK, and specifically to: 

  • advance the education of the public on the pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela
  • promote the Camino and pilgrimage, including related history, art, architecture and music
  • provide information, advice and guidance to all Camino pilgrims, no matter their reason for going, both before and after their pilgrimage
  • maintain our pilgrim hostels
  • promote research and educational programmes about pilgrimage, St James, medieval Spain and related topics
  • work to establish links between the Camino and the UK, including establishing local pilgrim routes

The Confraternity gave me laughter and the love of friends.

To read more about how the CSJ intends to fulfil these objectives for the foreseeable future, see our 5 Year Plan document here - 5yearplan.pdf
