IMO, there's no harm in wearing a Camelback as you're getting up to speed with increasingly long rides. Hydration is critical and sometimes difficult to judge and you don't want to bonk hard without any drinkable water nearby. As you get more comfortable with longer rides and get better at gauging water consumption (and also identify bottle refill spots!) you might consider sticking with two water bottles + a seatbag + jersey pockets.
