Cameros' service extends to the Rochester Institute of Technology as well. He was an active member of the Nathaniel Rochester Society, Institute of Fellows, and College of Liberal Arts Dean's Advisory Board.

The Nathaniel Rochester Society was officially established on October 29, 1967. Individuals who donated $500 or more to the Institute each year were admitted to the Society for the respective year. The purpose of the Society was to not only provide financial assistance to the school, but to "develop friends and ambassadors to promote and support RIT."

Persons selected for the Institute of Fellows are accomplished retirees wishing to further their contributions to the Rochester community. Members of the Dean's Advisory Board of the RIT College of Liberal Arts provide the Dean with an external perspective on the College and its initiatives and work on development, appeals, and College events.
