You’re never too old for summer camp. That’s the idea behind the new weekend pool parties at the recently renovated Porch n’ Backyard playground space at Hooters Casino Hotel—good old-fashioned fun with a little nostalgia thrown in.

The revamp is a key component of Hooters’ $20 million, property-wide renovation, which also included refashioned rooms and suites, a redesigned casino floor and expanded sports book and fresh dining and retail spots. The Porch n’ Backyard pool opens to the public daily at 10 a.m., but the Summer Camp party series gets lit Fridays through Sundays starting at 1 p.m. Celebrity host “camp counselors” are part of the fun, and this weekend marks the return of Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett—you know, Aaron Samuels—who kicked off the season at Hooters during Memorial Day Weekend.

Summer Camp boasts Las Vegas’ only poolside keg service alongside a variety of fun frozen cocktails, contests, DJs and games like skee-ball, cornhole, oversized beer pong and Connect Four, plus classic board and card games. And don’t forget the world-famous Hooters Girls, as if you would. If you’re looking for a good time by the pool at a different speed, there’s a new option just off the Strip.
