After moving to Park City with his family, Camerota began skiing at the age of 6. Even though he broke his leg in a ski jumping accident when he was young, he stuck with the sport and also began cross-country skiing as well. He became a member of the U.S. Nordic Combined Development Team after he graduated from Park City High School in 2003. His twin brother, Brett is also a 2006 Olympic Nordic Combined Team member. In addition to competing in the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Italy, Camerota was a 2005 World Championships Team member and placed third at the 2004 U.S. Championships.
When asked about training and competing alongside his twin brother Brett since the two were children, he says, "We know how we both train and we just work together to get the workouts done right. We push each other and it has made us stronger competitors."
Camerota enjoys fishing, paintballing and listening to rock music in his spare time.
