Organizers supply bottled water throughout, and supplement meals with hot soup & bread in the evening and hot water & bread with jam at breakfast.
Pilgrims supply their own powdered coffee, hot chocolate, tea bags, instant hot breakfast cereal, as well as cups, plates, bowls, spoons et cetera at each meal.
The Company of St. René Goupîl’s volunteers help pilgrims throughout. The Company provides some first-aid for foot-sore, blistered pilgrims. The volunteers also transport pilgrims’ gear from camp to camp — and give rides to weary walkers, too. They also help to prepare bivouacs along the way. Pilgrims assist one another — especially the women & children — to pitch tents.
Friday and Saturday’s privately owned sites are equipped with running water, toilets, a few showers and wash basins, with remote electrical supply only.
Pilgrim families or/and seniors participating in the “Modified Pilgrimage” may park RVs at each private campsite for an additional fee paid directly to the campsite personnel or owners on location.
In every instance, parents or seniors contact the manager/owner directly, optimally in advance.

Ask a gift of Our Blessed and all-Immaculate Lady, St. Mary the Mother of God, whose feast – her holy Name – we celebrate today, September 12. And her pilgrim-friends (and yours) will be given a deep discount on the registration fee in exchange.
Thanks to your Mother, in other words, you don’t have to miss the pilgrimage because you were ‘a day late and a few dollars short’ (again?) this year.
Today, August 14, the Vigil of the Dormition & Assumption of The Blessed Lady, begins three days of rock-bottom discounts on registration for groups & families of three or more.
Tomorrow, the Great Feast itself, is the second day of discounts.
And then we honor Our Lady’s holy Father – St. Joachim – The Grandfather of Christ, on his feast Thursday, August 16th.
The discount period on registration fees for groups & families expired June 1. But that doesn’t mean you or your friends and family are stuck.
Thanks to Our Blessed Lady’s charity commemorated today on her feast of Mount Carmel, July 16, you and your friends & family may register at the discounted rate.
