Vill”edge” Roadtrip is a program of the Antiochian Village Camp that takes campers on the journey through the early history of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese visiting historical sites throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. More information on this program can be found on the web at http://www.antiochianvillage.org/camp/VilledgeRoadTrip.html

One of the designated sites is the Archdiocese Headquarters in Englewood, New Jersey. The participants had lunch with His Eminence and participated in a lively question and answer session. They also sang some of the hymns that they have learned at camp. Their next stop is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
