Camp Justice (also known as "Camp Al-Adala") is a joint Iraqi-American military base in Kadhimiya, Iraq, a suburb northeast of Baghdad.

The location was renamed from "Camp Banzai" in mid-September 2004 as part of an effort to give Army facilities around Baghdad friendlier names.
Camp Justice was the location of the 2006 execution of Saddam Hussein; the 2007 hanging of Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti, Awad Hamed al-Bandar, and Taha Yassin Ramadan; and the 2010 hanging of Saddam's cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, a.k.a. Chemical Ali.
There was also a "Camp Justice" on Diego Garcia, the US base in the British Indian Ocean Territory. The air base is the home for refueling tankers.
Diego Garcia is also rumored to have been one of the locations of the CIA's black sites. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is one of the "high-value detainees" suspected to have been held in Diego Garcia.
The camp was renamed to "Camp Thunder Cove" in July 2006.
