American Pilgrims on the Camino is the Camino association in the United States. The association maintains a comprehensive website (americanpilgrims.org
) that provides information about the Camino. While focused on the North American pilgrim, the site offers comprehensive information for planning one's journey. As part of its mission in support of the Camino, American Pilgrims on the Camino instituted a grant program in 2009 and it has every year since then made awards in support of the Camino. Although the association strongly encourages pilgrims to obtain credentials from their own national associations, American Pilgrims does offer credentials by donation.
American Pilgrims convenes a national Gathering of Pilgrims annually and it supports numerous local chapters.
