Camp Iguana was built to alleviate the imprisonment of children and juvenile detainees aged between 13 to 15 years at Guantanamo. After the children and juvenile detainees were sent back to Afghanistan, detainees with mental problems were imprisoned there and afterwards the Uyghur prisoners were kept there before they were brought to Albania.

Camp Iguana represents an outpost of Camp Delta and was erected to alleviate the imprisonment of children and juvenile detainees aged between 13 to 15 years and brought to Guantanamo. The children and juvenile detainees were permitted to stay outdoors within the confinement of Camp Iguana from where they are able to catch a view of the sea through fences.

After the children and juvenile detainees were sent back to Afghanistan, detainees with mental problems were imprisoned there and afterwards the Uyghur prisoners were kept there before they were brought to Albania.

The name Camp Iguana derives from the Iguana, a large saurian species, that exists in large quantities here. Camp Iguana was built around the Iguana-House, which originally had been an excursion point. Camp Iguana was expanded with two SEA Hut's and was fenced once more.
