His 1908 survey and map of Mammoth Cave, Kentucky represent the first accurate instrumental survey of portions of the cave system. Kämper arrived at the cave in January 1908.

Kämper was killed in trench warfare at the Somme River in north-eastern France, on November 10, 1916, during the closing days of the Battle of the Somme. He is buried in the War Cemetery of Cambrai near Arras, France.
