Connect with the DAC Community
Throughout the year, we host a variety of events from educational fitness workshops and tournaments to the family-friendly Halloween parties and annual New Year’s Eve bash!
While we strive to make the special events truly special for our members, we make every day fun with weekly and monthly programs like the DAC Book Club and First Friday Family Night.

First Friday Family Night
While at the DAC, campers experience a unique program with art, sports, outdoor activities (summer), games, indoor swimming and field trips – traveling via public transportation to each destination. Camp runs from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. with extended care available for $7 an hour. Extended care must be arranged in advance. Camps are open to children ages 5–12, and are available for both members and non-members. The Downtown Athletic Club holds Kids’ Camps during holiday vacation, spring break, and throughout the summer.
The DAC’s “childcare while you workout” center. Designed to be a convenient childcare option for DAC members, Kidstop’s warm and loving staff welcomes you and your family. Kidstop is available for children between the ages of six weeks and 12 years old. Exceptions may be made for older children.
In addition to caring for your child’s needs, we provide a positive and caring environment where exploration can occur in a safe and educational manner under the supervision of our qualified Kidstop staff. Please keep in mind that the Kidstop accommodates all different ages, and activities exist for all age groups.
Kidstop appointments are by reservation, although drop-in care, at the discretion of Kidstop staff, is occasionally accepted. Due to staff/child ratio regulations, reservations are strongly encouraged. When Kidstop is full we must turn away drop-ins. Reservations must be made at least 2 hours in advance. Parents must remain on the premises while their children are checked into Kidstop.
Swim Lessons & Swim Team
The DAC offers both private and semi-private lessons for children beginning at age 3.
The DAC Swim Team is committed to providing quality swim instruction, technique refinement and personal development for the pre-competitive youth swimmer. The Swim Team practices Monday-Thursday during the school year.
