Expected completion date of the new Space Camp Operations Center is in mid-2023.

In addition to providing a new and diverse space for Space Camp program trainees, the 40,600 square foot building will also house a state of the art meeting center that can be rented out by the public.

Inside the new building will be a new U.S. Cyber Camp Mission Control area, where program attendees will deep dive into their mission completion simulations. The building will also house 10 new classroom spaces, a new check-in area for all Space Camp trainees, and a state of the art Auditorium and meeting space. 

In August 2017, Governor Kay Ivey designated a $10 million economic development grant for Space Camp to build a building to enhance its program and house a new mission area for the U.S. Cyber Camp program. Total building costs are expected to be over $15 million and outfitting the building with state of the art technology is estimated to cost upwards of $2 million.
