Country singers lead summer music camp for kids

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Academy of Country Music's summer camp called Lifting Lives is in full swing this week with country music stars serving as camp counselors.

The program's open to people with Williams syndrome, a condition that causes developmental problems.

Earlier this week, campers wrote a song with musician Jerrod Neimann, and they recorded their single Wednesday with singer Jake Owen.

"Everyone that's here has a love and passion for music, and that's where we first and foremost all hit it off, because we all have that same feeling. It's something that I'll definitely always remember," Owen said.

This camp with the coolest counselors around is not over yet.

It wraps up Friday night at the Grand Ole Opry when campers perform their song on stage with Neimann.
