(SALEM) - Don`t want to hear " I`m bored" from your kids during spring break?

Well, the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, Marion and Polk Counties is offering a variety of adventures for kids during their annual break from school.

All four branches of the Boys & Girls Club have planned activities surrounding a different theme each day and will offer the USDA free lunch program.

The USDA free lunch will be offered to any youth under age 18 (membership not required) at noon for each Boys & Girls Club branch.

Knudson, Swegle, Eastwood and Keizer Branches are open 10 AM to 4 PM on the days listed below:

Kari Bean with Boys & Girls Club of Salem says the Knudson Branch will have activities surrounding the theme: C.S.I. Each day there will be a mystery to solve and at the end of the day during the assembly, we will interview suspects to solve the crime.

Member participation will be high in collecting the evidence and figuring out what happened.

Other special events will include: Fingerprinting, Suspect Sketching, Police Academy Obstacle Course, Squad Car Express, and Solve the Crime games.

Special Field Trips will also be offered daily at the Knudson Branch, including Bowling, Chuck E. Cheese, Wunderland, Enchanted Forest, and a Movie. Call the Boys & Girls Club for specific dates, times, costs, and availability.
