DEAP-3600 is a single phase liquid argon direct-detection dark-matter experiment located at SNOLAB in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, with projected WIMP-nucleon scattering sensitivity of $10^{-46}$ cm$^2$ in 3 years, a factor of 20 beyond current experimental results at 100 GeV WIMP mass. The detector commissioning starts in Spring 2014, and DEAP3600 is projected to reach competitive sensitivity by the end of 2014. In this presentation I will describe the experiment status and will show the first detector commissioning data.
