For the past several years, we've been able to bring many Toronto summer campers on industry field trips. It's an opportunity to have kids start to understand how their developing skills will help them in the future, particularly as life-long learnersTo inspire them, we visit local leading technology companies to show our students potential exciting career options and coding in action. Our camp has been so successful that it's even been featured in Owl Magazine and Our Kids! Keep that in mind when you're hunting for the best summer camps in Toronto!

A huge part of Hatch’s coding camps for kids are the field trips we take to companies active in the tech and video game industries. The purpose of these company visits is to help kids get a sense of what these companies and their developers do with coding in the real world, and offer the campers a wonderful opportunity to show off some of their amazing coding projects to their fellow programmers.

On one such recent field trip our campers visited the QuickTapSurvey headquarters in Toronto. The company develops a highly rated survey app for tablets and mobile devices that’s used by some of the world’s largest companies to collect valuable survey data and insights. Coding is obviously a huge part of what they do, which is just one of the reasons we wanted to pay them a visit.

Sean’s interest in coding first emerged when he wanted to expand his own gameplay on Minecraft, and his passion has been growing ever since! Sean was featured in a newsletter published by The York School, where he discussed five reasons why coding should be taught to every student: problem solving, getting a job in the future, engagement, adaptability, and minimal set-up.
