Camerota began skiing and jumping at the age of six, after moving to Park City, Utah with his family. After graduating from Park City High School in 2003 he joined the U.S. Nordic Combined Development Team and competed in the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Italy. His twin brother, Eric, is also a 2006 Olympic Nordic Combined Team member.
Some of Camerota's other achievements include: two World Cup-B top 15 finishes in 2005, three top 10 finishes at U.S. Championships (6th in 2004, 7th in 2003 and 7th in 2002 in individual), three-time World Junior Championships Team member (2003, 2004, 2005) and 8th at the 2002 World Cup-B sprint event in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. When asked about competing against his brother Eric, Camerota responded, "We push each other in training, but as far as competitions go, it's not really competitive. We both push each other in competitions and if one of us does well, it's good for both of us."
Camerota enjoys golf and paintballing in his spare time.
