Curling lessons and special deals highlight Camden County WinterFest as the ice rink continues to be open on weekend in January and February.

For the next two months, the WinterFest Ice Rink will remain open to skaters during its standard operating hours: Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Fridays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Additionally, the ice rink will have a number of recurring promotions and activities throughout the remainder of the season.

On Saturdays, the Jersey Pinelands Curling Club will host curling matches from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., during which the rink is closed to the public. The club will then host introduction to curling opportunities for the general public from 11 a.m. to noon. In each one-hour session, JPCC volunteers will give approximately 20 people brief lessons on basic curling skills that allows them to play a 30-minute game. Each lesson is $10 per person.

On Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m. Attendees will receive one free admission ticket when they purchase one admission ticket at full price.

On Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon, WinterFest will hold skating lessons for people of all ages and skill levels. Lessons are taught by our professional skating instructor, Jacqueline Barr. Our skating sessions and fees include a 30-minute lesson with our instructor, followed by 30 minutes of practice and skate rental for a total of one hour on the ice each week. Skate lessons are available each week as part of “session”-long courses. The remaining schedule/fees structure is:

  • Session three: February 3, 10, 17 — $80

A waiver will be required to fill out and sign on the first day of class. Payment must be made in full on the first day of class to ensure your spot.

Finally, Sundays are family days at WinterFest. Guests who buy three admission tickets get one free all day.
