This contest is over! Congratulations to our winners: stammsgal and 3boys4me!

Kids stay active and cool during the summer at Polar Ice House's Camp Chillin'. And we have a week of half-day camp to give away to two lucky winners!

Kids ages 5 to 12 can choose to participate in one of two programs featuring the fundamentals of figure skating or hockey. The figure skating program offers kids instructions on the basics of how to skate. The hockey program covers everything from passing, shooting, skating skills, game rules and scrimmages.

Campers also participate in face painting, scavenger hunts, art lessons, science experiments, crafts, off-site field trips and organized games.

Our prizes for two winners are valid only for a week of half-day camp at Polar Ice House's Cary location. Half-day camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The weekly rate is $150. (Full day options are available too). Camps run weekly through Aug. 20.

For all the details about the camp (which also is offered at Polar Ice House's other locations), click here.

    Will this contest result be announced here? I keep checking back in hopes we won and don't see a result and would hate to miss the result if I was the lucky winner! Thank you!!!!

    Pretty much. I'm pretty fast at ice skating and I'd love the chance to get some more practice.

    I am not a strong ice skater, but a good roller skater in my day. Both our children surprize me at how well they can ice skate! Our 11 year old would LOVE to win a week of camp!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

    I grew up skating on a Lake in No. Va. Every winter I put my skates on and headed out to the lake which was in our backyard. It was a neighborhood lake, funtabuous!! I then moved to NC and haven't put on a pair of ice skates since, I would LOVE to skate again!!

    I am a terrible skater, but my son LOVES hockey and would enjoy working on his skating skills.

    Went to college in upstate NY. Ice skating was a PE class, :) I pass the class but I am have not ice skated since then. So, no I am not a strong skater. My daughter would love to learn how to ice skate.

    Ha! Ha! What a question!!! I am from Tampa, FL, home of the Stanley Cup Winning Tampa Bay Lightening!! They always open their arena at certain times during the "winter months" in FL and I decided to go ice skating ONCE. Let's just say it lasted about 5 minutes and that is stretching it. AND, if your ankles are not like steal rods, just hang it up!! I LOVE HOCKEY and wanted a son so I could "make him play", but I had/have a wonderful daughter and she would love to play hockey!! Thanks for all of your wonderful giveaways and information. My daughter and I love you!
