It can't be deleted it's one of the built-in apps. If you can't find it on any of your homescreens or app folders, and you can't find it via the spotlight search screen (swipe your first home screen to the right), then is it hidden by Settings > General > Restrictions > Camera being set 'off' ?
If not then have you tried a reset to see if you can find it after the iPad has restarted ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
If that doesn't find it then have you got an Exchange email account set up on the iPad ? If so then the account administrator might be hiding the Camera app - you could try removing the account and see if it re-appears.
In case that it disappears after creating a Google Apps Exchane e-mail account, follow this:
- Log in to your Google Apps Control Panel.
- Click on your 'Settings' tab.
- Under the 'Org Settings' tab locate 'Mobile Settings/Device Settings and Enable 'Allow camera'.
- Save changes.
- Restart your iOS device.
