Nuts and Bolts
Trip fees are based on a consulting fee of $400 per day plus expenses which can include mileage for Nanise vehicles, reimbursement for backpacking food costs, and others depending on the type of trip booked. Student participants are outfitted with Nanise daypacks, backpacks and camping gear as necessary. Students provide their own clothing and fishing gear. Schools provide transportation for students to and from the activity location. Mr. Omar Qureshi of Nanise Outdoor Adventures will come to your school and meet with students and parents before the trip to discuss preparations and answer any questions. A follow up visit with student participants to work on writing process is also included in the basic fee. One teacher sponsor per ten students from your school will work with Nanise staff to organize and chaperone the trip. Additional Nanise provided sponsors can be arranged for $250 per sponsor per day.
Mr. Qureshi began an Outdoor Adventure Club at Alamo Navajo School in 1994 with an IHS grant. For sixteen years he has led groups of high school and middle school students several times a year on wilderness backpack trips, lake canoeing/fishing trips, and cross country and downhill ski trips in New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon and Mexico.
