Summer Camp

The Strip is hit with an influx of 18- to 20-year-olds every year during the Electric Daisy Carnival, so we knew it would be only a matter of time until a property capitalized on the demographic (and the bank accounts that many moms and dads are likely filling). Enter Summer Camp, an 18-and-up pool party at Hooters Casino Hotel’s revamped outdoor space dubbed The Porch n’ Backyard. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer, the barely legal crew can jam to DJ beats at the off-Strip oasis, in between taking in a game of Giant Jenga and puffing on poolside hookah offerings. Summer Camp just might be the only place by the Boulevard where those almost of-age can revel in a high-energy EDM experience under the sun.
