Each pilgrim is sponsored by someone who has already done the Walk.  If it is your first time sponsoring a pilgrim ask someone who has done it before for some tips to be successful. The sponsors job is outlined in the Sponsorship packet   

Sponsors normally bring their pilgrim to the camp Thursday and stay to participate in the Sponsor’s Hour.  On Saturday there is a candlelight service and on Sunday there is a closing service.

Questions?  The Upper Room Emmaus webpage explains the  Walk.  You should meet with the person interested in the Walk and give them an idea of what to expect. Then it is time to get them to fill in an application.  Registration for new pilgrims is due two weeks before the event.  APPLICATION for Pilgrim and Sponsor

Clergy, Team and Sponsor Information is found on the Resource Page.

Come to Glacier Camp to show your support of the new pilgrims!
On the Walk weekend plan on being there Thursday for Sponsor’s Hour; Saturday for Singing and Prayers; and Sunday for Closing.
