In 1911, Dr. Camp was president of the Michigan Society of Neurology and Psychiatry and was a vice-president of the American Neurological Association from 1915-18.
He was a member of the Philadelphia Neurological Society, the American Association of Pathology and Bacteriology, the American Medical Association and the Michigan State Medical Society.
He was one of the original members of the Central Neuropsychiatric Association and he belonged to Alpha Omega and Sigma Psu medical societies.
