Additional check-in information:

Please leave luggage in your vehicle until registration has been completed. (If you have any medications that need to be dropped off with our nurses, please bring them inside when checking in.)

A uniformed Space Camp staff member will greet trainees arriving for Camp via plane at their gate at Huntsville International Airport and provide transportation to Camp.We do not offer this service for parents of trainees. If you are flying in with your child, please make other arrangements.

Only one parent per trainee is allowed to assist with room move in.

If you choose to depart prior to your child's program orientation time, there will be an additional $20 fee for caring for your child until the program officially starts at orientation.*

That fee will be added and auto billed to your account.

*Subject to availability as space is limited. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis.
