While this professional fee reflects some of the best value we can offer, we also know that some schools can use additional support in accessing our programs. As such, please get in touch about our sliding scale options. We appreciate your collaboration and support.

I just want to send you a note to thank you for the opportunity of having Chris Green into our school. The 3 sessions for outdoor education was invaluable ! He took us to our neighbourhood park as well as opening our eyes to green space on our own property that I would have never thought of using before. He was kind, engaging and very resourceful.
This is an amazing program and all of my students loved it !!
Thank you so much !!
