21st Century Pilgrims: Walking on Holy Ground
5 Inspirational Day Hikes in BC’s Shuswap region
with Phil McIntyre-Paul

“Walk as if your life depended on it. ...” – Barbara Brown Taylor

NOW AN 18-YEAR TRADITION at Sorrento Centre!

Five day hikes – five little pilgrimages – draw wisdom from naturalists, poets, rascals and saints as we consider our relationship within the natural world and a viable place within God’s ecology. Each day’s hike explores a new location in the Shuswap and is framed in the simple form of contemplative prayer, reflection, and sharing along the trail that has come to mark the 21st Century Pilgrims series.

Difficulty/Prerequisites: Moderate plus. Good walking shoes are a must. Participants must be in good physical fitness, prepared to be outdoors for the full day, and able to walk for periods between 3 to 5 hours with a small daypack. Expect trails to include sections of sustained uphill hiking.

Details: All walks are full day, off-site field trips. Daily trips depart each morning (9:45 am) from Sorrento Centre (with option for an earlier start on one of the days), and return to the Centre by 5:00 pm. Wednesday will be a shorter trip to provide R&R time in the afternoon. Evenings are left open for rest and free time.

Transportation to the trailhead each day will be organized by carpool. Participants are expected to provide their own personal gear.

Contact Sorrento Centre for the recommended equipment list for this program. (Participants with children should enquire about extended afternoon childcare options by calling the Sorrento Centre office.)

Due to the nature of these programs, participation is dependent on completing a liability waiver. The program leaders reserve the right to change trip itinerary and destinations due to changing weather, water levels, snow pack, trail and road access, and other reasons that may arise. Participation in these programs is subject to the discretion of the program leadership.
