Our Program Philosophy
At RBG we build our programs on a foundation of inquiry-based and experiential learning. We believe in allowing students to ask questions and follow their curiosity. We know that there is no substitute for a direct experience in nature, and that given the right opportunity, students can create meaningful connections that last a lifetime.
Our programs use active, hands-on exploration and activities to engage students, and to immerse them in the natural world. We integrate up-to-date science and research, and tailor our programs to complement current Ontario curricula. Most importantly, we know that fun must be an integral part of education, and that the best learning often happens when you least expect it.
With best regards,
Manager of Customer Programs
