“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,” said McLean. “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!”
