Adult Crews


Exciting, challenging, rewarding – there is no one word to describe participating in SCC. You’ll learn, but it will take hard work and sweat. You’ll complete great service projects, but it won’t always be easy. You’ll meet some great people, but you won’t always see eye-to-eye. It’s about learning, working hard for the environment and communities, and giving something back. We’re glad you’re interested in joining us.
