1 Million Steps: An Introduction to the Camino de Santiago

June 30, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Group Size Limit 75

Format Live Zoom Call, 45 minute interactive presentation, 15 minute Q&A

Presenters Emmeline Hill, Thomas Hill, and Rick Frey

Description The Hills are no ordinary family. They have completed a multitude of Caminos, including two across Spain with children (one age 18 and one age 8) and two across France and Spain. Join us to hear their story, and get inspired to embark on a new adventure. The Hills will show you how to train, how to equip, and how to succeed on the journey pilgrims affectionately call The Way. Join the hills on a digital journey as they lead you across the Camino Frances (Spain) and the Via Podiensis (France) describing the secrets to finding joy on The Way.

History of the Camino de Santiago, a description of the various paths to Santiago de Compostela, and a full breakdown of the logistics will be covered. This includes equipment needed, detailed descriptions of how to find food and lodging, and, perhaps most importantly, specific ways to train for success on your journey of one million steps.


The Hills teach Homeless and Refugee Medicine at The University of Arizona and will share insights from their teachings in their discussion of Camino first aid. Rick has walked complete Camino sections and various parts of the Camino almost yearly since 2009.
