You need to build is your self:

Have a look at the bottom of this page

Details is USB_CAM is there. It works well!

PS that is using rosmake - now you should use catkin_make

Please don't start a new answer

In answer to your problem - 1) have you now build the package successfully? 2) If so then you need to update your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH to include the usb_cam binary's path
