About this Event:

Pilgrimage brings us close to the land, slowing us down, deepening our awareness. Come join an experienced pilgrimage leader and discover how the rhythms of time and place can help us live more lightly on the land and help us become more Earth-conscious.

This pilgrimage will emphasize Christian and Indigenous teachings about creation.

Start time: 11:00 am Tuesday October 10 (optional shuttle leaves Halifax 9:00 am)

End time: 2:00 pm Saturday October 14 (optional shuttle to return to Halifax arriving approx. 3:30 pm)


Our four and a half days of walking will begin in the scenic oceanside community of Lunenburg, where we'll have a little time to explore and find some lunch. Then we'll hit the “rail to trail” hard surface walking trailways of the “Rum Runners Trail” along Nova Scotia's South Shore. We'll be sure to include some beach time, too.

As with all Camino NS pilgrimages, our Camino is both local, and guided. The routine involves some participant help with meals (clean up etc), as well as check-ins and a brief daily, optional, time of spiritual reflection. Camino NS staff will be on hand to facilitate the walking, the pilgrim accommodation, and luggage transportation. We plan interactions with local Indigenous wisdom keepers.

Leadership Team: Dr. Rob Fennell, Founding Director of Camino Nova Scotia, and staff TBD

Accommodation and Transportation: Accommodation for at least some overnights will be on mats in sleeping bags, in community or church halls along the route. Participants must provide their own sleeping bag and pillow (which will be transported by vehicle along the route) for the stays in community or church halls. Those not bringing an air mattress or sleeping mat must request one beforehand.

The walk begins and ends at locations along Nova Scotia’s South Shore. For those who are not driving directly to the Lunenburg launch point, but require shuttle transport to and from the Atlantic School of Theology, Halifax, a shuttle can be booked at an additional cost.
