Don’t worry. That’s normal. It usually takes longer than a week for Camponotus to emerge from pupae.

It takes Camponotus 3-5 weeks to go to pupae to a worker. If you want to slightly speed this up put the Camponotus in a warmer room. I wouldn't recommend a heating cable because my Camponotus don't like it but you can always experiment with your ants.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
