About Hatch Canada Camps
Hatch Canada Camps are offered in 3 GTA locations during March Break, Summer Break and on PA Days. Hatch Canada is a STEM program that teaches coding to kids with a unique project-based approach. The program creates experiences and memories for kids that will last a lifetime. Hatch Canada Camps teach new skills that open doors for kids and provide them with the tools required to succeed in the 21st century.
Kids learn computer languages and make awesome things every day. They learn how to think critically and creatively, and how to collaborate. Kids build their skills in programming by choosing their own projects to work on every day under the guidance of our trained (and very fun) coaches.
We love to see great children’s programs succeed, so here is some information about our fellow exhibitors:
Panda Mandarin is not your typical language school. They are committed to making learning Mandarin fun, engaging, and authentic for all students. This is really important because Mandarin is a very difficult language to learn! Their programs are highly interactive through music, games, and art, but also place a strong focus on practical applications of Mandarin. Students are supported by highly qualified teachers. “Our camps make learning Mandarin fun and experiential.” The program is about more than just learning Mandarin:
Children get to learn Mandarin and spend time with their peers through indoor and outdoor activities, as well as take mini trips to parks and shops around the neighbourhood. Our camps are theme-based and children will learn about their surroundings and Mandarin at the same time.
The camp features weekly field trips to places like the zoo and the art gallery. Panda Mandarin’s director, Yollanda Zhang, lives in the neighbourhood and has been very active in the community as a parent.
We love being here because there is a strong connection within the community. All the schools and local businesses here are amazing entrepreneurs who contribute to a better and healthier neighbourhood for families and individuals. We love being a part of that effort by providing high-quality programs to the community.
The Spanish Schoolhouse offers Spanish Day Camp programs during March Break and Summer Break. Campers are introduced to the Spanish language, along with Spanish cultural activities, Spanish foods, music, crafts and sports. The Spanish Schoolhouse loves being part of the Uptown Yonge Community.
“Our camps are awesome because the children have the opportunity to do all the activities they love while learning Spanish! Since we opened the school in 2004, the Spanish Schoolhouse has delivered programs to many families, offering group home classes and working with public and private schools in the area.”
Learning a new language at a young age is a good idea because you have a better chance of becoming fluent in that language with practice.
In part 2 of this blog series, we will introduce the rest of the exhibitors that will be attending the event!
We hope you’ll join Hatch Canada (and our fellow exhibitors) at the Yonge Lawrence Village Camp Expo on March 5th from 11am to 3pm at 3202 Yonge Street in Toronto. We can’t wait to celebrate this amazing neighbourhood and show you what we’re all about!
