A for Athlete


First Round got scratched[]

Mark Rauterkus produced four proposals for summer camps for Pittsburgh Public Schools to begin in the summer of 2010. The proposals were in reply to a RFP. (See the call here.) Proposals were due October 2, 2009 (for what was the first round).

Due to the state budget and changes to the federal stimulus funds, all grant applications got nixed.

Second Round[]

Suggested Camps from Mark Rauterkus Delivered for the (fruitless) First Round[]

The four suggested camps from Mark Rauterkus that are under the CLOH.Org umbrella include a Swim and Water Polo Camp that can have one or two sites with 30 campers per site; a Junior Lifeguard Camp that can have one or two sites with 25 campers per site; a Sports Manager and Entrepreneur Camp with up to 16 campers; and the Olympic Sports Camp with 125 campers in five squads among five sports settings. Each week brings campers to a new site with their squad. The five week rotation includes run, swim, bike, spike and golf.
