Brightest Young Things Summer Camp

Pool party

Editorial Review

The hottest summer party in recent memory? Brightest Young Things' weekly Summer Camp pool party, which was held on Saturdays at the Capitol Skyline Hotel in 2009 and 2010. What made it so awesome? Poolside DJs, limbo contests, moon bounces, pie-eating contests, karaoke and in-pool rave -- you just couldn't make this stuff up.

Though Brightest Young Things isn't throwing weekly events this summer, they're bringing back Summer Camp for July 4. Get ready for all-American music from the Que Sera and Outlaws DJs -- that's '60s-'70s rock and old-school country, respectively -- plus games, limbo contests, red-white-and-blue inflatable life rafts and much more. Bathing suits are highly encouraged, but not required.
