We want to get our Pittsburgh kids swimming and playing water polo soon -- before we do Summer Dreamers again

Hi Friends in Pittsburgh,

Last year our staff of 12 and about 150 middle school students had a wonderful time swimming and playing water polo. I loved coaching and teaching swimming to PPS students with Summer Dreamers at Peabody High Schools' pool. We had five great weeks. Now the challenge is to get that going again, this spring and summer, for campers and even some beyond the specific Summer Dreamers program.  

You are invited to attend any of the THREE informational meetings in the community in April, at different times and places, to talk about the changes for the 2012 Summer Dreamers Swim and Water Polo Camp -- and to give details for getting the kids into the water in April, May and June -- before the start of the official program July 9, 2012.

We are NOT at Peabody in the summer of 2012, but the venue shifts to UPREP and The Hill District. 

Swim and Water Polo Camp is held in conjunction with PPS Summer Dreamers, 2012 with

Neighborhood Learning Alliance

We want you swimming and playing water polo again, real soon!
