Camm was married to Brigid May Ratcliffe (daughter of Frederick Royds Ratcliffe and Mary Ann Holland, both publicans) in Victoria in 1906.[3] Their daughter, Lillian May was born in Corindhap in 1907.[4]

His brother, Ernest E. Camm was the owner, and later publican, of the Commercial Hotel, Corindhap from 1907 to 1912.
