The Endeavor Center Summer Day Camp exists to serve the overlooked and unmet needs of the children and youth in Montcalm County. Our mission is to fill the physical, emotional, and social void that many students endure so that we can help them discover their identity, develop their gifts and abilities, and deploy their talents and passions.
