School Skate Nights at Cabin John Ice Rink

Our popular School Skate Nights are held on Saturday nights during the school year (October through March).

Your school or group can rent the NHL Rink for 1.5 hours on a Saturday night (6:30-8pm) for $562.50). This fee includes admission for the first 100 skaters. If you have more than 100 skaters in your group, Cabin John offers a discounted admission fee of $7.00 per person. Skate rentals are not included in the fee (skate rentals are $4.00 per person).

The maximum number of skaters on the ice is 450. If your group is larger than this, you might also consider renting the Studio Rink for the younger skaters in your group. Want to serve refreshments before or after skating? Rent one or more Party Rooms on your Saturday night.

The lottery for 2023-2024 was held in May 2023.  If you did not participate in the lottery, dates are still available.  Please contact Julie Norris or call at 301-765-8626.
