K.I.W.I. programs address the entire child, with a view to having a positive impact, physically, emotionally and developmentally through the benefits flowing from nature-based play and mentoring in the great outdoors!

Through the delivery of programs that provide safe and fun adventures within Toronto’s Rouge Park, children will learn about themselves, their peers and the environment around them in a journey of "discovery from the outside in".
