Summer Camps

If you are a high school student interested in hotels, restaurants, catering, clubs, casinos and related fields, Hilton College's Hospitality Industry Summer Camp Program is THE ideal opportunity to visit the College and explore the many hospitality careers available to you in this exciting industry.

During our four-day experiential summer camps, held every summer, you will learn about the hospitality industry firsthand by touring some of Houston's top hospitality destinations. You’ll meet with leading industry professionals to learn more about the variety of career possibilities in hospitality, take classes, and even prepare a meal in our state-of-the-art student kitchen. As a prospective student, you will learn more about our program and College, as well as experience a taste of university life by interacting with Hilton College students, faculty, and staff, and touring the UH campus. You’ll also stay in Cougar Village, one of the University’s dormitories dedicated to freshmen. And these dorms are located right next to the Hilton College!

Camps are limited to 25 students. This is an experiential camp. No college course credits are given. The cost of our hospitality summer camp is $500. Students in a free or reduced lunch program are eligible to apply for a camp scholarship.

Each summer, there are two opportunities to participate - June 17th – 20th and July 15th – 18th.


We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our dynamic industry next summer!
