THE HOUSTON BAND BOOSTER DUES

Booster dues are how we fund the vast majority of the band’s activities every year. All

of the money collected is used to maintain the quality of band activities throughout the

year. As a reminder, HHS Band Booster dues are $725 (siblings $100 discount - $625),

and the first payment is due on July 1st, 2022.


All information about dues payments can be found on The Houston Band Website.

 

Full Band Camp July 26th-30th

The Houston Band annual Summer Band Camp will take place on campus at Houston High School.


Full Band Camp is MANDATORY for all students who wish to be a part of The Houston Band in 2022/2023. This is the only dedicated time we will have to learn the bulk of our Marching band Show. Failure to attend camp may result in removal from the band.


We will send out a detailed schedule and important band camp information in the beginning of July.
