SkateQuest

Home to recreational skaters, figure skaters, and hockey players since 1993, SkateQuest provides a twin sheet indoor ice skating facility for campers to enjoy skating, broomball, and more. The facility features an NHL rink, an Olympic rink, a cafe, and a pro shop. Reservations must be made at least a week before your field trip or private event.
 
Campers can enjoy skating or a fun game of broomball at the rink (ages 12 and up, helmet, and sneakers required). Ice surfaces are available for private events, which can include room space, catering, and skate monitors at an additional fee. Group rates are available for public skating.

Ice & Roller Skating Fun Facts

Did you know that the average speed skater can skate 30 miles per hour? Ever wonder how they are able to round corners at extreme angles without falling over? Did you know that the average figure skater can spin four times in the air before landing on one foot?

The world of skating may look graceful and sleek on television, but these sports are actually very difficult to master and rely heavily on the laws of physics. Ask the staff at the skating rink to explain and demonstrate the physics involved in moving, stopping, and even colliding on skates.
