How to use the map

When you zoom in far enough, points will appear along with a legend that will guide you through the map.

Summer sites: The small circles show the summer sites from 2021, color coded based on their projected status for summer 2022. The color-coding matches the color-coding used in the "County Summary" and "Sponsor Summary" tabs of this tool.

Summer 2022 Census Area Eligibility Data: The map is shaded based on census area eligibility data. Orange and blue areas are area eligible. Grey areas are not.

Schools & Attendance Zone Proxy: We do not have access to data for school attendance zones. If we did, we would also see if any of the open sites are in the attendance zones of schools that have at least 50% free or reduced price certified students or participate in CEP. As a proxy for the attendance zone, we compare each site to the nearest school.

On the map, you can see each school as a small square. The schools that can provide area eligibility to summer sites (50%+ FR enrollment or CEP participant) are shaded in dark grey. The others are shaded in light grey.

Caveats

The map shows open sites, closed sites, and camp sites for MD, ME, MI, and VA. For all other states the map only shows open sites. However, this Excel tool only uses open sites for all states.
