Curriculum & Programs

The Nuhop Center offers a beautiful outdoor education setting in which to learn and develop critical thinking skills. Our academic structure provides an environment where the targeted academic content standards come to life through a variety of classes. Each class takes into account the many different learning styles students exhibit. Our field instructors use an inquiry based, experiential approach to teaching each content area, therefore promoting an interdisciplinary learning model.

Our Instructors

The Field Instructors at Nuhop are either retired from full time teaching, have graduated from college as a certified teacher or are college students studying to be educators in child related fields. Many of the Nuhop Field Instructors work during our summer program; therefore they are experienced and trained in working with students who have learning and behavioral differences. All of our instructors have current FBI/BCI background checks.

High Ropes Course

The high ropes course involves a series or 8 challenges that take place 25-40 feet in the air. Students are properly fitted into safety harnesses and given detailed instructions in ground school before they begin the ascent to the ropes. Each student is responsible for setting his/her own goal on the ropes course. Our philosophy is “Challenge by Choice” which means that no one will force a student to go beyond his/her comfort level. With encouragement, students often are more successful than they first expect, which builds self-confidence and self-esteem. Safety, under the watchful eye of trained instructors is stressed in every aspect of the course.
