Fugitive teams of Scouts and Explorers from the 3rd South Shields Sea Scout Group spent the day outrunning catchers in the wilds of Durham County yesterday in Operation SANCTUARY!

Operation Sanctuary is a serious wide game pitching Scouts and Explorers against their Leaders in a battle of cunning and stealth.

Teams of Fugitives (Scouts & Explorers) will be taken by bus to a secret location. Once released they have 8 hours to navigate their way back to the finish to claim SANCTUARY.

Each team has 10 lives, and an hour later the Catchers (Leaders) will be let loose, to try and catch the Fugitives before they can claim SANCTUARY…
