“Summer Camp with the Stars,” a four-week series from iHeartMedia, will feature some of the biggest names in music helping children who are unable to attend summer camps due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The video series will stream every Friday from 3-5 pm (ET) on the iHeartRadio Facebook page. Kicking off the series is special guest counselor AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys, who will be leading a dance class with his daughter from their home.
“With millions of Americans postponing or canceling their summer plans to keep themselves and others safe, we wanted to produce a virtual summer camp experience for the entire family to enjoy together,” Chief Programming Officer Tom Poleman said in a release. “We’re thrilled to have AJ and several other of our favorite artists helping to create families of happy campers.”
McClean added, “I’m thrilled to be the first camp counselor for ‘Summer Camp with the Stars,’ especially since I get to share the experience with my daughter. It’s so important that we still find moments to just have fun with our children during such a strange time. I hope everyone is ready to dance.”
