Band Camp Information-2020

Everyone has the question “what is going to happen with band camp?”  As of right now we are still planning on being at the Hiram campus as we normally do every year.  So plan on packing and making payments as normal. We understand that some families are undergoing some hardship due to the COVID-19 situation.  If you need to postpone payments for now, please contact the treasurer, Sharon Vlk, at treasurer@bbopbearcats.org.
