Welcome to Crew 242


Youth adventure through youth leadership since 2010

We are a youth run organization bringing outdoor adventure to youth between 13 years old and have graduated 8th grade through to 20 years of age.

The youth run the organization giving them the leadership skills to move forward in their lives to be the next generation of Adult leaders. If you like to do things outdoors and are looking for some fun, give us a chance. Check out our Calendar page to see where you can meet up with us next.

Some activities we have done in the past include - 50 mile bike ride in Wisconsin, Zip lining in the Smokey Mountains, several backpack trips - including the Porcupine Mountains, broomball, Whitewater Rafting, Rock Climbing, and shooting sports - including getting NRA certifications.


Come down and visit a meeting and see what we are all about. We typically meet at the Oswego Presbyterian Church, in Oswego, IL.
