History

The community was named for Father C.J. Camper, an early Roman Catholic missionary. The community had a church built 1906-1910, which was subsequently destroyed in 1930 but was rebuilt, as the walls of the old church were reusable. However, one can easily distinguish between the two because the first church had a two storey steeple while the steeple on the second was only one storey.
