Best Parents Night Out

Editors' Pick

A couple of times a month at Life Time Athletic in Gaithersburg, the Kids Academy is the hot spot for children ages 4 to 12. From 5 to 9 p.m., Parents Night Out allows moms and dads to give their kids a fun night out, too. Instructors lead activities such as gymnastics, martial arts, yoga, crafts and games. Each night has a theme—past events have included a glow-in-the-dark “Yoga Rave,” a Halloween “Boo Bash” and the wintry “Blizzard Ball.” Pizza is always included. In addition to the standard twice-monthly Parents Night Out, Life Time offers occasional drop-off events, usually around holidays or times when school is out, such as a sports challenge event for 8- to 14-year-olds and a half-day holiday “Shop ’Til You Drop” camp, meant to give parents time to do holiday shopping without kids in tow.

Life Time Athletic members pay $20 per child; $30 for nonmembers. Registration in advance is recommended. Sign up in person at the activity desk or call 301-569-5100.
