From all of us here at Nuhop, stay safe, have fun, and get outside!

Build a Custom Program for Fall

If you have an outdoor education program that is at risk of being cancelled this fall, contact us a call so we can help you preserve this life-changing experience for your students. We have given up so much already due to COVID-19, let’s try to rethink what we can and preserve your school's traditions through a custom at-home/at-school program!

New for Fall 2020

Nuhop will connect with a classroom of students on a pre-scheduled basis to provide live and interactive education utilizing the surroundings and environments of both Nuhop and individual school districts to provide “real-time” outdoor education.

Nuhop will provide school systems specific and customized outdoor education plans and will work alongside the teachers to interact via the internet through the MEVO Start Streaming Camera. Teachers will be provided one MEVO camera and one iPad per classroom which will be connected via a secure connection with a dedicated Nuhop staff member who will also have a MEVo Camera and iPad to communicate and carry out experiential education from two physically separate locations allowing for students to experience the natural surroundings of their geographical location through guided activities and lesson plans from the Nuhop staff.

Custom Program Models

  • Nuhop will consult with your team on how to design and build an in-house program based on your needs.

  • Nuhop will design and build a customized digital OE program branded for your school with password protected entry points. Program will be easy to use and ready to engage students from the moment they click into the site.

  • Nuhop will provide interactive and live streamed outdoor education programs for your students. Nuhop will provide all the technology for this model of student engagement.

Nuhop pivoted early in the pandemic and is a global leader in virtual outdoor education experiences.

We are ready to come alongside you to help you create meaningful and engaging experiences for students. Contact Us!
