However, there are three additional types of sites that may be operated: (1) An Enrolled site where at least half of the enrolled children must be eligible for free or reduced price school meals; (2) A Residential summer camp that offers regularly scheduled food services as part of it's organized programs for enrolled children; and (3) A nonresidential day camp that offers cultural or recreational programs for enrolled children between meal services.
