"The West Coast-based Academy of Country Music is fully extending its charitable reach to Nashville by funding what will now be called the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp.
The ACM’s $30,000 grant funds scholarships and assures the fiscal health of the camp, which has run for six summers as the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Music Camp. The week-long program, which takes place this summer from June 27-July 2, helps people with Williams Syndrome and other developmental disabilities. All campers are at least 16 years old, and all have an interest in music: People with Williams Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, are often drawn to music, and they have a higher statistical rate of musicality than the general population."
