Wrap up text for grant



The efforts from the grant supplied new play opportunities and additional equipment at many swimming pools throughout the region including robust SKWIM play on the Northside at the camp of The Pittsburgh Project, twice weekly SKWIM at Citiparks Ammon pool in the Hill District, a week-long SKWIM camp that also engaged campers from the Boys & Girls Club of McKees Rocks at Allegheny County's North Park Pool, and an extra weekend of swim pool use at Highland Park Pool with a water polo and SKWIM clinic. Plus, we provided disks to every country club swim team in western PA and more than 50 other VIPs at various swim facilities.
