Settlement and history - German Lutheran colonists built a school and a prayer hall in Kamocin in 1830. Kamocin is 10 km from Petrikau. The Lutheran community stayed small because of a strong Baptist presence. But in 1873-74 Kamocin, together with surrounding villages was formed into an affiliate of Petrikau. A church as well as a school were built. Their new church was innaugurated in 1881.
