Summer Kid’s Factory is inspiring Mission Viejo youth to be healthy and active. So far, more than 700 kids have taken the challenge to turn off the TV and video games and get moving.
Kid’s Factory is a fun drop-in recreation program, offering supervised recreational activities. The program is sponsored by the City of Mission Viejo and is designed for kindergarten through six grade students. It began as a Saddleback Valley Unified School District program dubbed “Kid’s Club” in 1980. Seven years later, the City began sponsoring the program that initially took place at Castille, Del Cerro, Cordillera, Linda Vista, O’Neill, and Montevideo elementary schools. In 2007, Kid’s Factory expanded to include all Mission Viejo schools, including those in the Capistrano Valley Unified School District.
Since the latest summer program started in June, the kids have taken walking field trips to sandwich shops and for ice cream. They have enjoyed water days complete with slip-n-slides; super soakers; relay races; water volleyball; water hopscotch; and more. The summer fun at Mission Viejo’s Kid’s Factory is endless, and there’s more in store for August - including field trips to the Sierra Recreation Center pool to tackle the slide. The summer program ends August 24, with the school year program starting on September 10.
