Simon Kidgits Club Celebrates A Safe And Fit Summer At The Shops At Mission Viejo


With summer vacation coming up quickly, The Shops at Mission Viejo wants to make sure local families have a fun and safe break from school.


The Shops at Mission Viejo is hosting its Kidgits Safe and Fit Summer event to help families learn about summer safety and staying fit on Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to noon on the upper level, near the Play Area.


The event will teach kids about neighborhood safety, summer safety and stranger awareness, with easy tips including:

  • Stay out of the street. Cars make the street a dangerous place to play.
  • Tell your parents where you are going and when you’ll be back. Know your home phone number and address.
  • Ask your parents first. If someone invites you to go somewhere, offers you a gift or just wants to talk, say you need to ask your parents for permission first.


Orange County lifeguards will be on hand to share information on swimming safety, and retailers like Microsoft, Brow Arc Salon, Muscle Beach Lemonade and Build-A-Bear Workshop will have interactive booths set up. A Crime Prevention Specialist from Mission Viejo Police Services will also be sharing safety tips with families.


In addition, children will have the opportunity to participate in fun crafts, including decorating their own sand bucket for the beach.


“Summer is the season for kids to enjoy being active outdoors,” said Patsy Sanquist, director of marketing and business development at The Shops at Mission Viejo.  “We’re happy to help promote safe summer fun at The Shops at Mission Viejo.”


Kidgits Club members will score a mini beach ball as a thank you for being members.


The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3-8. The Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused for over a decade with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games.


For just $5 a year, membership includes a Kidgits Club membership card and T-shirt, scheduled entertainment and activities for families, a Birthday Club (including birthday card and gift redemption certificate), unique programs and offers, discounts and a quarterly newsletter.
