Camargo was born on March 10, 1958, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

He and his wife, Patricia, are the parents of three children.
Camargo and Brad Wilcox, of the Young Men General Presidency, embarked on a four-country ministry of Central Africa in September 2022. They are providing leadership training, strengthening the missionaries, and providing support to members and their families. The leaders are accompanied in their ministry by members of the Africa Central Area Presidency.
“The purpose of our coming to Africa is first to represent the Saviour and share His love with all the members and the leaders here,” Brother Camargo told Africa Newsroom. “Second, it is to help the members see how truly blessed they are to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Third, to help them learn about, and live, the gospel of Jesus Christ in their homes and families.” The leaders began their tour with a leader training session in Nairobi, Kenya.
