Campus work is great for building power and fore arm strength. I am not sure how it compares to kipping pull ups. I do know that since starting CF and doing lots of kipping that my campussing has improved.
Use caution when beginning. It is very easy to cause overuse injuries with this type of work, especially if you are not curently climbing. When most people start campussing they have probably been climbing for some time already and have already developed some specific strength that is neccessary for the crimping and landing of small holds.
I would start with big holds and ease into it by keeping your workouts short in the beginning.

But yeah, it is a great method of training for power.
