Cameron was born and raised in Brisbane, where he attended Redeemer Lutheran College. He first played sport at six years of age when he joined Little Athletics and would later become a hot prospect in the track and field. In 2004-05 he would pick up two national titles in Discus but gave athletics away two years later to focus on football. Cameron grew up supporting the Geelong Cats.
Cameron played his junior football at the Mount Gravatt Australian Football Club from the under 10s level. He progressed through the junior ranks at Mount Gravatt and was voted the second best player at the 2009 Australian Under-15 Schoolboys Championships before falling victim to osteitis pubis which kept him sidelined for the entire 2010 season. He returned in 2011 to solidify a place in the under 18 Queensland team and the Mount Gravatt seniors as a key forward. Cameron continued with his ways in the 2012 season before being told he would be taken by the Gold Coast Suns in the 2012 AFL Draft as a Queensland zone selection. He was taken with the 58th pick in the draft.
