The 2018 Elk Hill Summer Camp for 7th to 12th graders is going fantastically well. Campers spent the day on Browns Island, Belle Isle, touring city art followed by a delicious lunch at Casa Del Barco to work on restaurant etiquette and budgeting skills. Almost the entire day was spent outside and at the end, Camp Counselors tracked that everyone had walked 6 miles! It was a special day for the campers to appreciate the wonderful art, architecture, river and food of Richmond, Virginia.
HandsOn Greater Richmond and their corporate partner volunteered at Elk Hill on a very creative and engaging project that will be revealed in its entirety soon! With the help of Richmond artists, Nico Cathcart and, Shaylen Amanda Broughton, this installation will bring brightness and joy to the Harambee School and its students.
We are incredibly grateful to HandsOn and their ongoing support of our volunteer projects. We admire HandsOn and their commitment to our community, encouraging teams to learn, engage and connect in ways that are both meaningful and effective.

Elk Hill is so grateful for our amazing CarMax volunteers. Every June during CarMax Cares month, we are honored to be chosen as one of the nonprofit organizations to have the help and support of their hard-working Associates.
This year a tremendous amount of effort and volunteer hours have made our Goochland Campus look stunning. Our youth deserve a beautiful and well-kept environment and CarMax helps makes that possible.
Thank you to CarMax Foundation and their Associates for supporting our mission and serving our community.
Last Thursday, June 7, 2018, Elk Hill Staff, Students and Friends came together for the 31st Annual Awards Ceremony honoring the achievements of our youth and celebrating our graduating class of 2018. This year’s event was held at the Piedmont Virginia Community College in Charlottesville.
We were so honored to celebrate our youths’ accomplishments. The support of our Staff, Trustees and generous Donors helped make it possible for 9 graduating seniors to receive their diplomas. For young adults facing overwhelming challenges, this was an amazing triumph and no small feat.
The celebrations continued with light refreshments and cake in the commons area, where everyone congratulated our amazing kids on their hard work and dedication to creating successful futures.
