Campbell impressed for the Ryman Premier League champions last term, with the forward catching the eye during the FA Cup defeat by Newcastle.
Bess boss Martin Allen believes it is a gamble worth taking in allowing Campbell the chance to shine in the professional game.
"DJ is a centre forward who has been prolific at non-league level, and I am going to take a gamble that he can deliver at this level," said Allen.
"He has energy, enthusiasm and self-belief and has got himself going after a tricky couple of years."
Allen, meanwhile, has handed a new contract to midfielder Kevin O'Connor.
"He (O'Connor) is a model professional whom I see as an important part of my planning for the future," added Allen.
