Propagating Europe’s Cultural and Historical Heritage through Trekking

If you are part of an NGO, national or regional organisation in Europe with a similar passion for trekking we would like to hear from you. We would like this to become a hub for sharing events and treks with like-minded organisations and a platform for individuals and groups seek information regarding treks in Europe.

Becoming a XirCammini Member: Participating in Europe’s Cultural and Historical Heritage through Trekking

XirCammini is a voluntary, membership-based, organization. If you are interested in joining as a member we look forward to hearing from you.

The annual membership fee is 20 Euros per person. But for new members applying between 1st May and 30th November 2022, a flat, first fee of Euros 10 applies. One woudl then be invited to renew membership with effect from December 2022 at 20 Euros per person per annum.

In addition to participating in XirCammini trekking events and social activities, members also enjoy other benefits including discounts from selected outlets, participation in Volunteer Hospitalero training and placements, a say in planning/selection and early notification of overseas trekking itinerary, the election of up to 2 of our directors during the Annual General Meetings, updates, news, links and think-pieces related to trekking and/or ancient pilgrimages.

As a volunteer organization, XirCammini is streamlining membership renewals to 1st December of each year. This means that:

Current MembershipsAction
expiring in June 2022will be extended at no extra fee until 1st December 2022
expiring in December 2022Will receive renewal instructions in November 2022

As a result of the above change all members will be receiving a renewal advice by email in November to renew their membership by 1st December 2022 and annually thereafter. Furthermore any new members applying now will be requested to pay a flat, first membership fee of Euros 10 until end November 2022 and will also then be invited to renew their membership in December 2022.

Please note that payments will only be accepted via electronic transfer to the XirCammini bank account mentioned in the application below. We are not accepting cheque or cash payments anymore. When settling, please also quote your name and reason for payment (in this case membership fee) in the payment reference field.

Many are familiar with mobile and Revolut payments. These are still possible modes of payment to our bank account. For example, with Revolut one just has to follow these simple instructions: For Revolut users: tap ‘Payments’ → ‘Transfers’ → ‘Send’ → ‘+ New’ → ‘Add a bank recipient’. You’ll be asked to add the bank transfer details. In this case these are name: XirCammini Bank: APS Bank, Address: you can input just Malta if requested. The important thing to input is the IBAN number: MT43APSB77013000000042921110018

To apply for membership please fill in this form:

The Recipient Account name is XirCammini. Please include your name and surname in the payment reference. For new members applying between 1st May to 30th Nov 2022 the pro rata fee is Euros 10 per person. The annual (new or renewal) fee from December onwards is Euros 20 until further notice.
