Camp Foster is the home of the headquarters of Marine Corps Base Butler, Marine Corps Installations Pacific and the Okinawa Area Field Office of United States Forces Japan. Among its amenities are a large exchange with an adjacent food court, bowling alley, skate park, performing arts center and movie theater. The base operates three schools: Zukeran and Killin elementary schools and Kubasaki High School. The base's housing units include Kishaba, Chatan, Futenma, Plaza and Sada.
On 31 March 2015 the West Futenma housing area on Camp Foster was returned to Okinawa Prefecture signifying steady implementation of agreements to reduce and consolidate land used by the U.S. military on Okinawa. A 20-hectare part of the area is earmarked for a medical division with plans to build a prefecture administered advanced heavy particle cancer therapy facility. The University of the Ryukyus Faculty of Medicine, including the University Hospital, is also scheduled to move from its current location in Nishihara into a new facility to be constructed on the land.
