The Athletic Club of Columbus expertly weaves
traditional celebrations with innovative programming
to satisfy all family members. Grandparents help the
grandkids build a gingerbread house for the holidays,
fathers twirl their girls at the Father-Daughter Dance, and
the whole family relishes time together at our Mother’s
Day Brunch. Add to this a few “Dive-In” movies, our
Gym ‘n Swim program, Bingo or Bowling nights and you
have the recipe for smiles. Remember, too, that friendly
child care is available for those times when you need an
uninterrupted workout or a quiet dinner.
