    Are you sure it is not coming from your water pump, and just leaking down to the area you see it. Check for a coolant leak coming from a little piss-hole at the bottom of your water pump. When this happens, it is a sign that your water pump is about to go out.

    Coolant leak

    I assume by "Camshaft" you mean "Timing cover"? I would try to eyeball the water pump behind the pulley and see if you got coolant coming out the weep hole on the pump.
